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.

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.

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
