At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
I really liked Dr. Altman. Upon meeting her the first time, she immediately expressed compassion for my struggles and put me at ease. She listened to me and talked with me, not at me. Her patient interaction skills are excellent, her knowledge deep, and her plan to help me solid.
Dr Altman is the nicest doctor I see, she is so personable and caring. She always asks about â€šÃ„Ãºmeâ€šÃ„Ã¹, not just my symptoms or lab results. She knows her stuff and always makes me feel comfortable, especially dealing with the unique blood disorder I have.
Dr. Altman has been great with my cml care. She always addresses problems immediately and answers any questions to help me understand the issues. Additionally when messaging her office with questions, they/she responds immediately within a few hours.
As I previously stated, Dr. Altman is a consummate professional with an expertise in CML, in which I have been in treatment for 18 years. She is truly caring and compassionate to my needs and is never leaving me with any unanswered questions or concerns with our appointments. I feel I owe my life to her and her staff for the watchful care I have received over the years!!
Since being diagnosed with CML in Oct. 2002 by Dr. Tallman, I received excellent and compassionate care over his tenure until his departure to NY. I was assigned to Dr. Altman then, who has continued to care for me with her professional expertise, her sense of kindness, compassion and genuine concern about me. I owe my life to both of these exceptional Doctors!!

Dr Altman is an excellent Dr. .She cares about her patients, if you don't understand what was said she explains in lay terms and will go over it again until you do.

Dr Altman has always been there for me through out my battle with AML and stem cell transplant. Since 2012 if it wasn't for her knowledge about AML and stem cell transplants and her love and support for her patient I would not be here.
