We are most blessed to have the most exceptional surgeon possible as our surgeon, and we are thankful. Dr. Altimari became our surgeon on 12/26/94 and has been ever since. He is not only an extraordinary surgeon, but also the most compassionate physician one could ever hope to have.

I saw Dr. Altimari to get a second opinion on my condition. After meeting with him, I will be changing doctors. He agreed with the first surgeon who had been treating me. Dr. Altimari was so compassionate and explained things so thoroughly to me. Plus, he gave me information to take home and advice on how to move forward. I was extremely impressed and grateful to him. if I need surgery down the road, he would be my first choice.
