I had an appointment for later in the day and stopped by earlier because I was in the area to see if they could accommodate me. They did.

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.

Very friendly and comforting. I often avoid doctors because I feel like a number at a meat market. Dr. Altchek was very compassionate and told me we together will work on treating my acne break outs. Made me feel confident he was the correct doctor because often other doctors write a script and if the medication doesn't work out they blame the patient for not applying it correctly. Dr. Altchek spent longer with me than any other doctor and before I went into the exam room, we met in his office where we discussed hobbies and kindly why I am visiting his office. I am now looking forward to visits to Dr. Altchek. Thank you Dr. Altchek!

Dr. Altcheck was very courteous and kind during my assessment. He provided valuable feedback and discouraged Botox and fillers since he did not believe I required this type of treatment at this time. A light chemical peel will help resurface a fresh look. I appreciated his honesty and professionalism; particularly in a world where many are encouraging more invasive practices.

The staff were extremely helpful and courteous and I did not have to wait (which typically happens when I see some other physician). When I met with Dr. Altchek he first went over with me my medical and family history and then conducted his exam. It was probably the best interaction I can recall ever having with a physician.

I was referred by my physician, one of the top alternative health doctors in NYC, who is also one of his patients. The referral was excellent - he could not have zeroed in on a better dermatologist. Staff were great, office visit pleasant (5 stars), I got everything done that I wanted with no hassles, clear understanding and minimal time. Dr. Altcheck impressed me as a brilliant doctor who knows his stuff and how to treat both the patient and the condition. Fast, quick, convenient. A pleasure. Would recommend him to anyone in a split second as the first one they should see.
