The doctor himself seemed very kind and knowledgeable, but the visit was a bit perfunctory. The check-in person and nurse were great. The woman who checked me out was for some reason borderline hostile from the moment I walked up to the desk. Left a bad taste in my mouth, for sure.

Dr. Alstein was professional and seemed well informed. He was very quick with our appointment and just ran quickly through a list of check points and suggested me to specialist. Overall the entire staff was polite but efficient and quick so keep that in mind if you are person who needs extra time and attention.

Dr. Alstein is great. He's one of the few doctors I've met who treats his patients like partners--actually going through the chart with you, explaining what he'd like to test and why. What a refreshing experience.

I have had Dr Altstein as my PCP for nearly 20 years and there are none better. He is kind, gentle, understanding but mostly knowledgeable about so many things. Sam's personal attention and genuine concern put him in a class by himself.
