Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Altiner has been our family's dermatologist for more than 5 years and we'd all recommend him very highly.
Very attentive, thorough, professional. Have been seeing Dr. Altiner for about 2 years and am always pleased with my treatment.
Dr. Altiner is wonderful. I didn't have to wait at all even though I was early for my appointment. I didn't feel rushed while asking him questions and he showed concern for me. Plus, there's chocolate in the waiting room!
Absolutely a prime experience
Excellent Dr! Highly recommend!
Excellent for both cosmetic and medical dermatology. Nice bedside manner, doesn't rush appointments, asks questions, gives thoughtful responses. Non-judgmental and very knowledgeable.
I was very happy with my experience, I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Well for my first visit the experience I must say was excellent. I had a 1 pm appointment I was in and out before 1:30pm. Plus the reception was warm, friendly and courteous. I definitely will recommend him to my friends, family and co-workers.
Refreshingly punctual. Pleasant and professional.
I have been seeing Dr. Altiner for over a year. I would recommend him for any young adults who struggle with adult acne. He is friendly, professional, and smart. I feel that he always listens to my concerns and is quick to develop a "game plan". I think that he understands the embarrassment and frustration that can go along with suffering from acne, and he is sensitive to these issues. Beyond that, he has a very nice office and awesome staff up front. I've never waited more than five minutes.
Took the time and answered all my questions perfectly. Thanks
Ineffective and a reap off.
Great office space. Very comfortable. I've been going to Dr Altiner for a few years now so I can say highly recommended
Just an absolutely incredible experience. Dr. Altiner was friendly, knowledgeable, and took the time to put me at ease. Highly recommended.
Love Dr Altiner!

Very friendly and knowledgable. Made his explanations easy to understand. Would definitely recommend to others.
Dr. Altiner is concerned with what YOU want, very professional, puts you at ease and he is highly skilled.
I've never seen another patient at Dr. Altiner's office. Their scheduling is very efficient, equating to priority time for you, the patient. Reaching this page you've read and heard all you need to; don't think about it, schedule your appointment. I've also had no problems reaching Dr. Altiner directly, which can be difficult with healthcare professionals.
Dr. Altiner is warm, welcoming, and is a great dermatologist.
He was very thorough and he my daughter liked him very much.
He seems very professional and knowledgable. His office is neat, modern and clean. For someone without insurance, the price for some treatments seem steep but he does help you to figure out which payment option is best suited.
Pleasant! Very personalized
As ever, a good visit.
Dr. Altiner is very easy to talk to and is super attentive.
I think he is great and never a long wait
Dr. Altiner is very professional, warm, friendly and knowledgable. My 18 year old son sees him for acne, while I see him for anti-aging procedures. I highly recommend him.

Thought the visit was great. Was very satisfied with his treatment plan for my sons acne issues. Didn't rush and answered all our questions.
Nice bedside manner, you feel comfortable with procedures, knowledgable
I discovered Dr. Altiner on ZocDoc a couple of years ago when I was worried about a spot that might have been cancer. He saw me immediately and was wonderful (and I did not have cancer, buy the way). Since then I have seen him for many things including some very discreet cosmetic dermatology. The results are amazing. People are commenting on my appearance and I look much younger and healthier. He is also very informative and takes his time explaining and discussing every option, never pressuring me to do anything and allowing me all the time I need to decide on what I want to do. His office is pleasant, his staff friendly and efficient. I highly recommend this practice.
Dr Altiner was friendly and straightforward. He gave me options for treatment at different price points, which I appreciated. I will visit him again.
there is no wait time he is always on schedule or maybe a few minutes he never overbooks always give you good amount of time
Dr. Altiner was very professional and friendly. He made feel very comfortable. Great experience.

Wonderful - he is honest, caring, warm & personable. I would recommend Dr. Altiner to anyone.
Great, friendly, knowledgable doctor. Would recommend him to anyone.
His careful and communicative and takes the time needed for me to make treatment decision. He ia also a truly nice man and understands that people need to make educated choies. I found him on ZOCDOC and he has been consistently helpful and professional ever the past few years that I have seen him, His office is comfortable and nicely furnished. With an eye towards making the patient comfortable
He was wonderful. I would certainly recommend.
Couldn't ask for a better, more patient, physician to help me with my needs. I recommend any and all to Dr. Altiner's office. Bravo.
Great doctor would visit again
His offices are clean and well kept, his staff is friendly and professional and he actually listens to you and makes appropriate recommendations. He steers you away from procedures that are not appropriate for you even if you REALLY want them.
Dr. Altiner and is staff are superb!
He listened. Impressed me as knowledgeable, thoughtful and empathetic. A refreshing experience.
Great knowledge, advice, patience and skill. Best results I've had on melasma treatments. Mellow atmosphere, which I really, really like.
Aside from the part about having a medical problem in the first place, I was glad to have had the opportunity to meet Dt. Altiner, and he will now be an important and valuable resource.
This was a follow-up visit (2nd of a 3-package deal) so have yet to see the full results of my treatment but I've been very pleased with Dr. Altiner overall.
Dr. Altiner was awesome. Cannot recommend him highly enough. He's personable, attentive, and great bedside manner.
He seemed very nice and very competent, although his assistants performed the chemical peel I came in for. I scheduled a followup appt and will be back soon!
I had IPL for the first time and he made me feel very comfortable and warned me when i was to expect the sudden burst of heat. He is very attentive to his patients and makes you feel relaxed. I'll definitely be back.
What a great staff and beautiful, clean, comfortable office. The doctor was very patient with my questions and the nurses were very friendly and professional. It was only my first visit, but I know I'll be back again. My appointment started on time which is always a bonus!
Couldn't ask for better!
i think he was great very clean place and very friendly
I love this doctor and the way his office is run. I am so pleased that I found him through ZocDoc. It has increased my reliance on your service. I highly recommend him as being thorough, kind, patient and a good listener. He also explains everything and answers all questions in an accessible manner.
great experience..treats patients with respect and care AND no waiting! Amazing for a dermatologist.
I think he is a really good and caring doctore. I found him last year through zocdoc and have been seeing him ever since.
He is excellent!
Dr. Altiner took his time and answered all my questions. He did not push me to do a procedure. He is not there to make money as most of all those cosmetic doctors and even told me that some of very expensive procedures would be a waste of money in my case, which I really appreciate.
Incredibly personable physician and nursing staff.
He was great - super friendly and knowledgeable. And plays great music! I'd recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Altiner was great, very friendly, answered all of my questions.
I had a great experience with Dr. Altiner. He was fast, kind, and addressed all my concerns. I didn't feel rushed at all. I arrived 10 minutes early and was seen 5 minutes before my actual appointment time! I would recommend him to anyone.
very professional atmosphere, great front desk.
He's great - short wait time and fantastic bedside manner
Dr. Ahmet was patient, kind, and understanding with me on my first visit today for my recurring eczema, which has taken a turn for the worse recently. He took his time and explained that he wanted to step back and make sure I have been treating the right issue -- the first doctor/dermatologist to recommend a biopsy of my eczema. I'm hopeful for a good program to maintain this when I find my results next week.
Doctor was professional, personable, sensitive to my concerns and needs, and seemed very experienced and knowledgeable. For a first time visit, I felt very comfortable.
Quick, efficient, does electronic prescriptions. Plays odd music in the waiting room.
He was willing to answer my questions.
Dr. Altiner was kind, helpful, and reassuring -- I recommend him highly!
Very professional, listened to all my concerns. Will be back.
Professional, attentive, and helpful. Took time to attend to all of my concerns, answered all of my questions, and did not rush me out the door. Highly recommended after seeing other dermatologists.
Courteous, professional, took his time.
I was very happy with my results.. I will definitely return and refer others... Thank you!!
Pleasant experience all around. The doctor answered my questions looking in my eyes as he spoke. Handsome office layout. Friendly receiptionist.

He is always prompt, never keeps patients waiting. He is thorough and professional, answers questions patiently and has always helped me. I am glad I found him through ZocDoc
It was a great appointment. I felt completely comfortable, and felt like I got information about skin care that no dr. had ever told me before.
Highly recommend. The office is beautiful and the doctor is just great. Efficient, pleasant with great bedside manner.
