Ratings for Dr. Larry Alter
He's good, front staff are rude. And wait time is ridiculous. That's main reason I stopped going to see him. Hated dealing with his staff and delayed appt times...ALWAYS. He was my dr for 15 yrs, good dr, but I couldn't take it anymore. He's very aware that his patients have complained about these issues...but never did or does anything to change it. So what does that tell you? He doesn't care, as long as ppl keep going to see him. He gets paid every visit from ohip. He would improve things for his patients if his numbers dwindled. The almighty tax dollars at work.
Dr Alter is a great person however like most people on here I find the wait times to see him frustrating over two hours constantly behind. I also find it frustrating that when I call to get a repeat prescription from him I then get a threatening letter telling me I will be charged for all telephone refills as opposed to waiting two hours after a scheduled appointment to see him just to get a prescription filled.
Best doctor by far. Great bedside manner, personable, empathetic and knowledgeable. I drive an hour to see him and understand I may wait couple of hours due to his need to spend extra time with some of his patients. He never rushes you out and explores everything. He is a wonderful doctor.
Dr.Alter is an outstanding doctor......extremely thorough, knowledgeable and caring. If you don't like his punctuality, bring a book or I-pad.....he never rushes his patients and can get behind only because he's so thorough. His staff are in a busy and stressful role but recently I've found them to be quite personable, efficient and with excellent communication skills....a real pleasure to deal with !
Dr Alter cares very much about his patients and will do the very best of giving the best treatment and will send you to other good specialists he recommends will help you to fix what ails you. He has a great bed side manner and takes his time with you to go over everything.
