Dr. Altstein and the staff is great. The only problem is that things take a very long time at this office. Budget 90 minutes for an appointment. *sigh*

It's not just about my most recent appointment only. Dr. Altstein has been my PCP for about 13 years. Just let me put it this way: there's no way I'll be seen any other doctor as long as Dr. Altstein is around. I'll follow him anywhere!

Comments: Time will tell! This was my first introduction. Dr. Altstein addressed my personal health concerns. To date, I've been able to maintain reasonable good health. I hope that will continue with the help of the Beth Israel Health network. AJL

Appointment was at 8:00 AM. Was done with everything, including blood tests by 8:25 AM. Clean and efficient office. Highly recommended. Was able to spend time discussing issues as well as general 'how are you doing' questions. Did not feel rushed or limited to what I could discuss.

The nurse who saw me first was obstinate and uncooperative in addressing confusion about whether my appointment was too soon after my previous appointment to cause a problem with my insurance claim. She claimed that she spoke with the doctor about what type of exam he was able to perform (such as blood work) considering the date of my most recent past visit, but I think she misrepresented his view (if she spoke with him at all), because when I saw the doctor he was much more cooperative in providing the exam and tests I requested in light of my medical history and current concerns.

Dr. Alstein is very down to earth and really gives you the feeling that he is interested in your well being. He gives good counsel and forwards you a printed briefing of everything done during the visit. I feel like an imbecile going to these horrible doctors over the years.

Dr. Altstein is the real deal. I started seeing him about 3 years ago, and he relates to me as a person, not just as a patient with medical conditions. He cares, and it shows. He is also highly professional.

I've been going to Dr. Altstein for over 15 years. When he moved to the upper east side for a short period I followed him even though it was completely out of the way - that speaks volumes about his medical skills and bedside manner. Fortunately he is back in Chelsea. I would highly recommend him. SM.
