Ratings for Dr. Jerald S. Altman
He read my medical records from other doctors, and came to the expected news of needing surgery of the throat. After explaining some details about it, he offered me time to think about it. I elected to wait a while, but after a couple of months, his staff called me saying the doctor feels that I shouldn't take too long to make my choice. So I had it done that same month. The surgery was done in a hospital environment surgery center where I felt safe if any other condition arose. With 2 doctors in the operating room, the procedure went flawless. I came out feeling alright and slept that day away. On the 2nd day and thereafter, I had very little amount of discomfort! I am very happy with the outcome! He called me that next morning to see how I was doing and if I had any questions. I don't see any room for improvement.
Dr. Altman is knowledgeable, kind, reassuring, takes the time to answer all questions, and does not make you feel rushed. My only complaint is that I've had great difficulty scheduling a follow-up appointment (which isn't Dr. Altman's fault). The gentleman in charge of scheduling appointments has screwed up the date/time of my follow-up appointment on two different occasions - very frustrating.
Dr. Altman is the best! I had a thyroidectomy in January performed by Dr. Altman I was one of the overly nervous patients. Dr. Altman put me at ease with his sense of humor and professionalism. I put the operation off for almost 2 years but turns out that because of Dr. Altman..I actually had some fun. I'm healing nicely and recommend him to all. He's great!
Dr Altman has operated twice on both of my kids. He is not only one of my favorite doctors, but I really enjoy him as a person. We had a very negative experience with our previous ENT & had a bad outcome for a minor surgery there. Dr. Altman was not only FAR more professional, but our surgical outcomes were much better. My kids love seeing him. He relates well with kids and has a great sense of humor. Instead of meeting the stereotype of a condescending, arrogant and distant doctor, he is personable and approachable. We will be disappointed when our kids' follow ups are over & we don't get to see him!
