Dr Altstein was a personable and professional physician, who generally cared about my well-being and diligently suggested several proactive measures I could take in order to begin to address my health issues. He was approachable and in-tune with the most current best-practices of patient-centered medicine. I am so happy that I chose Dr Altstein and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

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.

My visit with Dr. Altstein was to the point and I was able to be in and out of his office in 40 minutes (that includes getting to my appointment 10 minutes early, getting labs done and meeting with the Dr). I was able to get back to work in no time, much appreciated!
