What our Patients Say

“Dr. Altadonna was professional yet personal. I was seen at the time my appointment was scheduled. Regarding the possibility of using a new medication, he told me what side effects were possible and respected my decision not to use the medication at this time.”

“My first visit with Dr. Altadonna was in 2012 after having been referred to him by The Heart of Lancaster Hospital ER. He would soon tell me I had a tumor in my bladder but he didn’t feel it was attached or had spread and that he would schedule surgery to remove it and have it biopsied. I must say hearing him tell me this was a shock to say the least. I sat there trying to process what he had just found and what needed to be done. He came back into the room just to reassure me that he was confident in his assessment of the tumor and not to worry he’ll take care of it. Dr. A. quite possibly may have saved my life. Direct, always on time with appointments and the most skilled and knowledgeable urologist you could ever hope for. Thank you Dr. Altadonna.”

“Dr. Altadonna is the best. He is kind, caring and compassionate about his specialty. He delivers a unique bedside manner and is always there to listen.”

“He was very thorough and informative w/ my whole medical situation and very patient in all his explanations.”

“Thorough efficient informative caring”

“I was referred to Dr. Altadonna about ten years ago for a single visit. Two years ago I wanted his opinion and had a good experience with him. I elected to have an annual visit even when he assured me it was optional. He has always provided a good overview of my situation and I have twice made a decision to go on or modify my treatment plan several days later when I have thought about his comments and insights. Very good guy. I will move to IL in a few well and will miss having his good counsel.”
