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.

I bought the daily exfoliating cleanser one day when I was out shopping at Kohl's. Up to this point I have not been thrilled about any products I've used, and I've bought a few, believe me. I have noticed my skin is brighter and I have a more youthful glow. It is ever so subtle, but it is there. Can you recommend something for age spots? Thanks!
