How likely are you to recommend Dr. Alter?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Alter treated me for a very serious Stage 4 Cancer and I am now in total remission. Dr. Alter is a kind and concerned doctor and I feel he has very good judgment. On my first visit, he took the time to arrange a very complicated biopsy for me on the morning of his flight for a family holiday out of state.
