Dr. Altman’s Patient Testimonials



"Thank you so much for being a great doctor. Because of you, I was able to enjoy my beach vacation without complications from the dermatology issue that I saw you about just before leaving. You are an expert at what you do, and you do it with patience, care and compassion. I truly appreciate that you saw me on short notice and made sure that I had everything that I needed to solve my problem quickly. This is the second time that you saved me. You are the best! Thank you to you and the staff."

- Laura, NJ



"My face and hands were showing my age until Dr. Altman began applying her medical magic. First she filled in my facial skin with Radiesse. This procedure tightened the skin around my eyes, cheeks and mouth. The net result was a softened more youthful general appearance. Secondly, she applied a micro skin peel, this resulted in giving my skin a glowing clear appearance. Dr. Altman then tackled my hands, my skin was no longer plastic and with no fat on them the veins were very obvious. My hands looked more like chicken claws. When the Doctor finished my hands looked twenty years younger. Through out the procedures I never experienced any pain. Aside from the medical procedures, Dr. Altman has always explained everything to me and is enormously patient, respectful and supportive to me. Her staff is superb which does not surprise me. The first time I went to see Dr. Altman her office was packed it is easy to see why. She has made an enormous difference in my life and the lives of her many patients. Her professional highly skilled demeanor and knowledge is made warm by her caring friendly self. The net result is a highly skilled doctor with a heart of gold. "

"I have been a patient of Dr Altman's for quite a number of years. Throughout our years together she has treated me for a variety of conditions. From treating skin cancers to restoring my face to its once youthful condition. I have always trusted her opinion and have been very comfortable with her advice on treatment. Dr Altman seems to have that "gut " instinct. I have found Dr Altman and the staff to be very thorough and caring. I am presently having some cosmetic procedures done and I am thrilled with my results, and looking forward to the finished product."

— Maureen Lilli, Maplewood,NJ



"It is rare to find a doctor who is as professional and up-to-date as Dr. Altman. Rarer still is her compassionate and caring attitude. She is currently helping me repair some sun damage on my fair skin, but she's been my dermatologist for a long time. My experience with her through the years has always been extremely positive and I would recommend Dr. Emily Altman to anyone and everyone in a heartbeat. "

— Harry Patrick Christian, Montclair, NJ



"Dr. Altman has been my dermatologist for several years. She has performed a number of cosmetic procedures for me. She listens to your concerns and suggests appropriate treatments. The results have always been natural and every procedure was explained in depth beforehand, so I knew exactly what to expect. I am so comfortable working with her that I have complete trust in her suggestions and recommendations and know that they will enhance my appearance. The results are great, because people tell me that I look younger and better than ever! I would recommend Dr. Altman without hestitation."

— Christine Gardner, West Orange, NJ



"I have been treated by Dr. Altman now for several years - principally basal cell and squamous cell removals - and am very pleased with the results. What impresses me about Dr. Altman is her knowledge of dermatology and the thoroughness of her examinations, as well as her aggressive approach in treating skin cancers. I have commenced the laser peel procedure and already see significant improvement. "

— John Connor, Millburn, NJ



"Dr Altman has performed many cosmetic procedures for me and I have always been extremely happy. Most recently I had treatments for my hands and face with Radiesse. I really liked this filler. It has restored fullness, smoothed and diminished lines. Dr. Altman's knowledge and skilled hands made me feel very comfortable, and looking great! Dr. Altman and her staff are wonderful, they ensured my comfort throughout the procedures. I always felt well cared for. Ready for more! "

— Bobbi Sommer, Livingston. NJ



"Dr. Altman has been my dermatologist for many years. Dr. Altman combines a kind, thoughtful approach with her professionalism. Recently, she performed a series of micro-laser peels on my face. The results are amazing! I now have the best skin ever! My tired, old, hyperpigmented skin has been replaced with smoother,younger looking, more vibrant, healthier looking skin! My friends & family have told me I look well rested, healthier, "glowy" and I've even been asked if I've had some "work" done. I don't hestitate to recommend Dr. Altman to friends & family & I know I'll always remainher patient."

— Roseann Buono, Rockaway, NJ



"I have had a number of procedures performed by Dr. Altman from wart removal to laser processes to lighten brown (age) spots on my face to a laser peel. In every instance she has been able to combine a professional approach with a kind and gentle demeanor. What I most appreciate is that she carefully explains everything to me so that there are no surprises and I trust her judgment regarding my skin care."

Hi, Dr. Emily

I want to thank you for the dedicated care you have given me over the years.

You are the only dermatologist who found my skin cancer (and I've had a few before you!) I am glad you took the "extra steps" to find the cancer.

I am not sure what would have happened to me, if not for your knowledge.  I am deeply appreciative of you, as my Dad passed away from the same cancer cell that I have.  Thanks again.  God Bless you and yours...

You are definitely worthy the wait!
