I had a follow up visit with Dr. Altstein and was very pleased. He actually listens, answers all questions and has excellent bed-side manner. This is only my 2nd visit with him and it has been nothing but great.

Very nice doctor with good listening skills (so nice to be listened to as well as spoken to by a Dr.). Fantastic office space and environment and everyone working there was professional, polite AND knowledgeable. A very nice change from waiting rooms that feel like a DMV appointment. Highly recommended office and Dr.!

It is such a blessing to have Dr. Altstein back! After several years as my PCP Dr. Altstein had taken a hiatus from the 23rd St practice at which time it effected me like losing a family member. I told him I thought of him as like a saint to which he humbly replied, "thank you but I'm just a kid from Brooklyn." Sam is an honorable man with a giant heart and Incorruptible old world ethics. As fine a practitioner of the medical arts as you will ever find. In my mind he is peerless.

If you want a no-nonsense doctor who tells you how it is and is straight to the point, go to Dr. Altstein! He walks you through everything he has to do to get you the treatment you need. If you want to be coddled he wouldn't be right for you, but he listens, cares, and remembers, just in a very efficient manner! I got very lucky with him.

Dr. Altstein is very rude and judgmental. I did not feel comfortable with him as my doctor, so I found someone new. Just not a nice person.

My wife and I think the world of Sam. He has been my doc. for over 15 years...my wife's doc for about 5. If he were to move to a medical practice in North Korea, or Syria, I'll travel to see him.
