This was my first time seeing Dr. Altchek. He was ready to see me at my appointment time, which lately I find to be a lovely surprise when it happens. I felt he spent enough time with me, did a thorough skin check, and made sure to ask if there were any specific things I wanted to address or to follow up on. I would definitely recommend Dr. Altcheck.

I have been a patient of Dr. Altchek's for over 20 years. I entrust my skin care to him. He has repaired my injured face, monitored me for skin cancer and other diseases, repaired scars and addressed other issues. He has a conservative approach and is cautious, aiming to produce the best results. I trust my life with Dr. Altchek and give him my highest recommendation for expert care and great bedside manner. He is dedicated to his work, has a fun sense of humor and takes the worry out of doctor visits. His staff is excellent and a pleasure to work with.
