Summit Medical Group is pleased to announce
that internist Lloyd Alterman, MD, FACP,
recently earned an MDx Medical Patients' Choice Award
for his outstanding bedside manner, time spent during his patients' visits,
courtesy of his office staff, appropriate follow up, and overall excellence.


After earning his MD at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan, Dr. Alterman completed his residency in internal medicine at Overlook Medical Center in Summit, New Jersey. He completed his fellowship in nephrology at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City. Dr. Alterman is board certified in internal medicine and nephrology. He practices at 1 Diamond Hill Road in Berkeley Heights.

Vitals.com, a popular physician rating site that offers the MDx award, enables patients to evaluate and award physicians who are exceptional. The site offers patients a 360º review of physicians as well as factual information on a doctor's expertise and practice, other consumers' reviews, and recommendations from other doctors. It also provides health care options for travelers, patient guides, and recommendations about the type of physician to seek for a particular condition or disease.

Each month, more than 200,000 US patients log onto Vitals.com to provide online opinions about experiences with their doctors. Each year, only 5% of the physicians for whom patients provide evaluations receive the Patients' Choice Award. In 2011, 14 Summit Medical Group physicians from a variety of specialties earned the award.
