I wouldn't normally write reviews, especially a poor review, however I found this office through a web search, and would've appreciated this months ago. This is based on approximately FOUR visits, so no, it wasn't a "bad day". First, the womanat the entrance desk is impolite; she doesn't ask how you are (after you do), nor says goodbye as your leaving. I visited Dr. Altman for what seems to be hormonal acne issues. Each time I went, I was seen for probably less than five minutes. The appointments started off well, until I seemed to request any longer than this for any further explanations. Each time I asked for an explanation, or express a concern, I was curtly cut off, and finally my last visit I was told "You can do whatever you want, it's your choice, it's just my professional opinion." When I go to a doctor, the least I expect, after I feel like I HAVE to ASK for an explanation of my condition or treatment, is an explanation slightly longer than "It's just my professional opinion" and "it's a treatment method". I was on antibiotics for two months, I'm not a doctor, I didn't go to medical school, so when I RESPECTFULLY express my concern, or possible side-effects (whether they're medically reasonable or NOT) the response shouldn't ever be "It's my opinion, do what you want." Despite my asking, I wasn't offered explanations other than "It's a treatment method", nor was I offered alternative treatment options and possible pros and cons. I scheduled multiple appointments despite feeling this way from the beginning to be able to have consistent doctor through acne treatment, however I will not go back. Save your time, and try a different doctor, the least they can do is be as inconsiderate and impersonal as this. No doctor should make you feel uncomfortable asking for explanations.

Making a follow-up appointment was handled easily and pleasantly. As thiswas my first visit, I am looking forward to using this service for future dermatological needs.

I had 3 visits with the doctor so far , and in all 3 of them he was highly proffesionnal . He would explain the problem in details from how it got there to how to solve it. What I appreciatethe most is that he would prescribe medication only if there's no other way.

Doctor booked two appointments at the same time....so I was seen 25 minutes after my appointment was supposed to start and I arrived even 5 minutes earlier. He seemed impatient when I asked questions stating "I'll get to it" He needs more empathy and be less quick solutions based

This is not the first time I was not seen until about 25 minutes past my appointment time. While I appreciate the professionalism and experience of Dr.Altman, I strongly feel that something must be done about how his office schedules appointments.It appears that his office may double book his appointments and/or they have not adjusted the appointment time slots to align with the actual time it is taking for him to see patients. This morning, for example, I had one of the first appointments and yet I was not seen until 25 minutes after my appointed time. All this after they had re-scheduled my appointment for a half hour later than I originally scheduled it for ( I had scheduled for 9:15 through Zoc Doc and immediately after received an email stating the office had re-scheduled my appointment to 9:45). This made me even later for work than I had anticipated. Just need the office to value their patients' time.

I only went to this doctor twice and both times I felt so rush. As if he didn't want to hear what I had to say about my acne. He explained the process and how acne is develop and then startedyou on a treatment that he started for everyone using his products of course. Then on my second visit I didn't see any process and told him that. And he said no it's a little change but I has to get worst before it gets better. Okay that fine. I've been taking his products for 3 months now and felt as if my face got horrible. I stop using them since and the lumps and bumps started slowly going away.

I see Dr. Altman pretty much every month for follow-up and making sure my treatment is working ok. I almost never have to wait, and if I do it's normally not long at all. He is to the point, easy totalk to, and things are going well with my treatment plan.

He's engaging, knowledgable and attentive. My condition was diagnosed and he spelt out old school ways of treating the skin on a daily basis which people need to know. Managing black skin is fairly simple; either it's healthy and glowing ordull and cracked. His restoration product revitalized my skin.

I have been to several doctors' offices, but he is by far quick when it comes to wait time. He talks to you and explain his thoughts thoroughly. He also has a special room for those with acne issues. Basically, it'sa room where the bacteria gets kill. Now I believe that's a bonus!

I've been to many dermatologists and doctors over the years and I've never had such a bad experience. Dr. Altman thinks he's being direct, but in reality he is almost rude. He doesn't really listen to you as a patient andI felt like he was more wanting to prove that he knew so much rather than listen to what I needed. I didn't really get the help I needed that day because he is too difficult to work with for me. I wasted time and money going to him so he could write me a prescription for something I could basically buy over the counter instead of the meds I wanted and will need. After I left his office, I booked an appointment with another Dermatologist who is much more professional, listened to me and was very helpful in the past. Unfortunately, you have to wait 2-3 weeks to see the better doctors, but after this experience I learned my lesson and would rather wait. In addition, the front office staff is not friendly at all. I was a new patient and they never smiled or were welcoming, asked how I was, nothing! Overall, a bad, bad experience for me that day and I would never go back there.
