Couldn't ask for better care
July 20, 2022
I had a number of questions & concerns, and Dr. Altamimi addressed each one. I truly appreciate this. And where options for addressing the problem were available, he explained & gave me choices.

Dr. Altamimi showed great concern for my medical issue. This was a post colonoscopy office visit because of an issue he found during that procedure.

Good experience, Dr patient and excellent listening skills answered all my questions

I immediately felt at ease with Dr. Alamimi at my first visit. This was my second visit to see Dr. Altamimi about my acid reflux starting up again quite suddently. He asked me questions and listened to my responses. We discussed the cause of my discomfort, which Dr. Altamimi figured out right away what it probably was, and he came up with what he recommended I do to alleviate this problem in the future. I agreed with doctor's plan. He is so kind and thoughtful and wanted to make sure I was on board with his diagnosis and what he recommended I do. It's been two weeks since I saw doctor and no acid reflux.

Dr. Altamimi was very good at answering my questions and explaining what needs to be done to make improvements to my health

The Dr was excellent explaining everything and had a great bedside manner. But when He Talked to me about weight loss, it felt odd and scripted. If he had not been so kind, and had good reviews, I may have asked to see someone else. I guess weight is a sensitive topic and should be handled (in my opinion) by my general practitioner.

Dr Altamimi was wonderful. He listened without judgment, provided explanations, and was very considerate. I felt very at ease which I can't say about any other doctor I have seen before.

I have struggled with abdominal pain for years and have tried everything. Dr. Altamimi had read my history and took my present complaints Into consideration and suggested testing to make sure there was no underlying conditions. Fortunately there were no underlying illnesses or conditions. He prescribed one tablet at night before bed, not only was it that simpleIt took away the pain that I struggled with for so many years! I feel sooo much better! I "Highly" suggest Dr. Altamimi to all my friends and acquaintances!

I've been treated by several doctors in my life & without question, Dr Altamimi is the best to ever treat me. Amazing listener. Talked to me like I was his buddy, not his patient. That put me at ease.
September 06, 2021
The dr is so nice and will explain everything. He answered all my questions and called my daughter to let her know the plan and next steps.
