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!!
