I went a week ago today for perimenopausal symptoms. Expected test results, got none because they needed to test my blood. I didn't know this, that's why I went to the doctor in the first place.
I was argued with like it was my fault when I called today. No apologies from Sam, Dr. Altenbern's nurse. She said I could re-schedule to have blood work done.
Never again!

Dr. Altenbern is absolutely wonderful! He is without question the best doctor I have ever seen for so many reasons. Where do I even begin? From my very first visit I was completely comfortable with him. I went to him to seek treatment for Endometriosis. He is such a compassionate and genuinely kind doctor. He never rushes you. He will take as much time as you need to make sure that you fully understand all of your options and/or concerns so that you can make the most informed decision possible. His staff is fantastic!! You almost feel like you are visiting friends as opposed to going to the doctor! I recently went to see a different doctor for my annual exam because he was closer to where I live and I will never do that again. There isn't even a comparison. If you want the best OBGYN in town... he's the one!

I started going to Dr. Altenbern when my genecologist retired. I was pregnant, going through a divorce, and generally having a very emotional time. Dr. Altenbern always took time to listen to me and showed concern for my situation and my family.

He is a wonderful, compassionate doctor who listens to his patients and actually hears what they are saying. This world needs more doctors like him.

I have been going to Dr.Altenbern since I found out I was pregnant in 2000. He and his staff have always been very friendly. Each visit we talked about things that were going on in my life (which was and still is school). He has a very sincere and friendly spirit. I had to see his nurse practitioner once because he was in surgery and she was great as well. Very friendly and welcoming. I rate Dr.Altenbern and his entire staff A+++++.

I recently switched to Dr. Althenbern out of sheer luck; my Ob/gyn that I have been seeing for years was not able to fit me in on short notice (understandable, but frustrating). My initial experience with Dr. Altenbern and every one in his office was absolutely awesome; I have never had a physician take the time and care that this doctor took with me. His entire staff is friendly and never fail to set me at ease. They practice a whole person approach which has been absolutely incredible for me. As a result, I also see his wife on a regular basis for help with chronic acne. She has been amazing! I have gone to a multitude of dermatologists over the years...none of which were able to truly help me. She helped me to develop a skin care routine that has changed my life! Truly! I am healthier and happier than I have been in more years than I care to admit. I will always been grateful for this caring couple and hope to continue to use their professional knowledge for years to come.

I was referred to Dr Altenbern in April 2008 by another doctor who was no longer specializing in younger women's care. I was having severe abdominal pain (I have a prior history of PCOS). When I went to see another provider before Dr Altenbern for this same problem, they did an ultrasound, said everything was fine and sent me on my way. The pain only continued to worsen. After 2 ER visits, I had almost given up. Then I was referred to Dr Altenbern. He saw me the next day. He told me he would find what was going on and he did. The last option was an exploratory lap. He went in and found my left ovary was completey encapsulated by a large tumor. My ovary had to be removed. At that point, I was so sad to loose and ovary but so happy I had found this wonderful doctor who listens, cares and is always there when you need him. I would not hesitate to send my mother, best friend and sister to him because he treats his patients as if they were his family members. I have been seeing him ever since and recently had to have a 'golf ball' sized cyst removed from my right ovary from which I am still recuperating. He put me in the hospital and we tried everything as to not have surgery. Unfortunately, we had to, but it turned out well. He was able to save my ovary. His staff is extremely caring and put themselves in your shoes. They go out of their way to make you at ease in stressful and non stressful times. He is the best OB/GYN, all-be-it physician I have ever come across (and I'm a nurse)!

I have been a patient of Dr. Altenbern since the age of 19(I am now 35). He has delivered 2 of my three sons. He is a very caring physician, and takes the time to listen to ALL your concerns. His staff is very professional and just as caring as Dr. Altenbern. I recommend him to anyone looking for an attentive physician.

I was referred to Dr. A after years of other doctors blowing off my pain, vomiting, and nausea as nothing, even though I was no longer able to work or even dress myself due to my symptoms. He actually LISTENED and took what I had to say seriously. He educated me on different possibilities and we finally decided on surgery, which revealed edno that had been growing inside on my organs (stomach, ovaries, bladder, diaphragm, etc) for years. I know other woman who have had the same surgery and had bruising and longer recovery times. Because of Dr. Altenbern's skill as a surgeon I had no bruising and very little discomfort from the actual surgery. All the pain from the disease was gone as well and I returned to all normal activities after a week. He was also very thorough with follow up care, taking the time to go over the facts from the surgery, possibility of the disease returning, option for conception, etc. He is conservative, but when it comes to his patients overall health he is willing to explore options. He is the most committed physician I have ever met, and is dedicated to making the lives of woman healthier and happier. His staff is personable, compassionate, and very professional. There is no better OB-GYN in Nashville, but we certianly need more just like him.
