OU Physicians Patient Jan 21, 2020

Our appointment was 4pm on a school day. Chatted with the PA for awhile. Doc came in about 4:50pm. Told us we needed labs and xrays but since he ran late xrays would probably be close. We arrived at 5:05pm at Radiology was closed. Labs was open- the nurse were amazing. I wish there were easier times to get appointment either before school or right after without missing school. Thanks.

Dr. Altaf is great. I think the support staff (especially those involved in scheduling appointments) are poorly engaged in their work and show little effort towards helping patients and their families.

OU Physicians Patient May 21, 2019

The medications were not called into the pharmacy or when I called to ask his office I also checked on his testing. The receptionist that helped me wasn't nice or knowledgeable. She keep referring to his old appointment not the most recent. As for that, I was very pleased with the amount of time I waited to see the doctor and how my child and I were treated.

Her Dr and the staff are amazing.. I recommend them to everyone.

OU Physicians Patient May 14, 2019

OU Physicians Patient May 11, 2019

We've been to multiple specialists and Dr. Altaf is by far the best we've had. He's very knowledgeable, caring, and listens to what is working or not working in my daughter's care. We couldn't be more relieved to have found him, especially here locally.

We need a patient portal please for 13-17 yr olds. Too busy to play phone tag

OU Physicians Patient Mar 29, 2019

Very professional and went over the procedure through.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 27, 2019

The physician was 30 mins behind the scheduled appointment time.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 20, 2019

Dr. Altaf was the third pediatric GI that we have seen, and he was by far the most knowledgeable about our daughter's condition and health history. He is the first person to provide us with detailed education on the mechanisms of her issues. He described very simply and clearly his plan of treatment, and I finally have confidence that she is in good hands after months of struggling. It is a huge relief to finally find a doctor who will listen to our concerns and provide us with guidance on how to care for our daughter's GI symptoms.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 19, 2019

He made time during his surgery schedule to see us in clinic as a work in! Excellent care!

OU Physicians Patient Jan 12, 2019

We are very pleased with our experience at OU Children's Hospital.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 27, 2018

I've written the same for 10 years: OU is very fortunate to have Dr. Altaf and so are all his patients and their families. He is an amazing professional for his knowledge, care, and how he communicates with his patients. I just wish OU would hire more such medical professionals and staff so that they would not be so over worked. THEY never say they are understaffed but WE can see how hard they work. What devotion! Thank you to Dr. Altaf and his staff!

OU Physicians Patient Aug 28, 2018

Rayleigh's g-tube site has been irritated on and off for a year. Dr. Altaf has tried the same thing a couple of times and two different, basic prescription treatments. None of which have helped - then at this appointment he basically said he wasn't sure what to do and would check with ostomy care and get back to us within a few days, which he failed to do.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 14, 2018

Very thorough evaluation; clearly communicated results and action items.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 18, 2018

My husband and I are very thankful for Dr. Altaf. Dr. Altaf has been able to give us answers about a medical condition my son has had for 15 years, we have seen numerous doctors and have had several test/procedures done over the years and he was the first doctor that new the answers.

OU Physicians Patient May 24, 2018

My child has seen over 20 Specialists in 3 different states and Dr. Altaf is one of the best we have seen. We have finally found a team of doctors at OU Children's who are willing to help us. We travel 6 hours to see Dr. Altaf and it has been so worth it. He is really caring and trying to help us and I appreciate him.

OU Physicians Patient May 8, 2018

Glad he has FINALLY decided to help my son more!!!

OU Physicians Patient Apr 10, 2018

Dr. Altof is amazing! We travel 6 hours to see several doctors at OU because she hasn't gotten the care she needs in our state. The doctors at OU work together and really want my child to get better. We finally feel like we are getting answers after 2 years of seeing over 20 doctors!!

OU Physicians Patient Apr 3, 2018

Dr. Altaf is awesome. He is very patient, doesn't mind repeating himself if I need to hear something again, he is very clear about how he wants to treat my daughter. He never makes me feel like he is in a rush or too busy to answer questions, even though I know he has a lot of patients. I very confident in his treatment plan for my little girl and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone needing a pediatric GI doctor.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 23, 2018

Dr. Altaf was very thorough and paid close attention while examining my child.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 24, 2018

Dr. Altaf is one of the most thoughtful, intelligent, knowledgeable, and kind doctors we have ever known. We are always extremely grateful to him for the care he has given our daughter Saskia. Your hospital is so fortunate to have him!

OU Physicians Patient Jan 2, 2018

The Dr. and all of the staff were very kind and helpful! This was our first visit to the OU children's hospital/clinic and we're very happy with our experience! :)

OU Physicians Patient Nov 7, 2017

I would not recommend Dr. Altaf, but I know there are other providers in the clinic so I wouldn't advise someone to avoid it entirely

OU Physicians Patient Oct 28, 2017

Dr. Altaf paid special attention to my child and made sure she understood her illness and the plan.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 24, 2017

Dr Altof has to be hands down the best Gi doc. He gets it done and does mess around

OU Physicians Patient Aug 22, 2017

Dr Altaf is excellent

OU Physicians Patient Jun 7, 2017

Dr. Altaf is very kind and considerate. He's very helpful at explaining my child's health, medications, and tests. He is patient to listen to my concerns and answer all my silly questions. We're blessed to have him on her healthcare team.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 7, 2017

Dr. Altaf has been taking care of my daughter for nearly 9 years. He is the most knowledgeable, thoughtful, kind, sensitive, wise, and simply amazing doctor we have ever had. I wish he and all the other staff were not so overloaded (they NEVER complain ... we KNOW how many patients there are by how long one must wait to get a regular appointment...HIRE more doctors, please!). These professionals are saving lives and helping people maintain good lives. Thank you, Dr. Muhammad Altaf!

OU Physicians Patient Apr 11, 2017

He's great and we're very pleased to have someone on our team working as hard as we are to give our daughter the best quality of life as possible. He's very kind and helpful and we appreciate him tremendously! Thank you!!

OU Physicians Patient Mar 28, 2017

Unable to reach provider with follow up questions after the appointment.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 24, 2017

He's really great and I don't think we could be in any better hands. On a side note: the provider couldn't have possibly have known that I'd had the worst week ever and had no energy for my child - who was running back and forth and screaming & crying - but he was so kind and friendly. He never seemed agitated when he had to repeat things and wasn't judgemental of my "mom-fail" moment. He's just so "real" and I really appreciate him and the girls at his office!

OU Physicians Patient Feb 17, 2017

Dr. Altaf is exceptional. OU Childrens Hospital is very fortunate to have him. Nine years of wise, attentive, and excellent care for our daughter. The best of the best.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 1, 2016

Dr Altaf is very thorough and explains things in a way that is very helpful and easy to understand. He scheduled everything necessary to help us get the results we need.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 1, 2016

This was my first time to meet this doctor. Ours is on maternity leave. He was great. The first person to come in to talk to us was nice, but maybe not used to kids? I'm not sure if he was a resident or who he was. Not having seen him before, I assumed he was our doctor. It wasn't until our doctor came in that I realized this person was not Dr. A.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 26, 2016

This doctor asked questions the pervious one never did!! he also seemed to respond well with my son.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 12, 2016

Dr. Altaf was absolutely amazing. I couldn't believe the overwhelming number of positive reviews he has online because parents are usually impossible to please, but Dr. Altaf exceeded our expectations. He was thorough, thoughtful, and informative. He showed what I deemed an appropriate level of concern without ordering an excessive number of tests just to rule out random possibilities. He gave us an extremely logical explanation and outlined the possible paths we would pursue over the next 2 months, 6 months, and 1 year. We received considerate answers and a reasonable plan to pursue. There could not be a better pediatric specialist! It was well worth the drive from Tulsa to see Dr. Altaf.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 13, 2016

Only comment ____ made was the speed of talk by Dr. Alaf--most was directed to me as her guardian and I understood fully

OU Physicians Patient Aug 16, 2016

we have been seeing Dr. Altaf for about 7 years now and he has always been the most kind thoughtful caring provider, my child loves coming to see him and his staff.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 3, 2016

Great, attentive provider.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 22, 2016

Dr. Altuf is an amazing doctor. I have recommended him to several people. His fellows he had working with him that day were also amazing and kind.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 22, 2016

Dr Altaf has such concern for our daughter. listens to our converns and does what is best for our family. he is calming and talks to ____as an individual which I appreciate. he is one of the best practitioners at Childrens and we have been through many specialties.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 1, 2016

Dr. Altaf is the best.

OU Physicians Patient May 31, 2016

Came and went as it was advertised, very good.

OU Physicians Patient May 24, 2016

We are extremely blessed to have Dr Atlaf as our doctor. He is great with our 3 year old and us (parents). He explains everything from point a to point b. Takes his time so you do not feel rushed through your appointment. He addresses every concern we bring to him every time.

OU Physicians Patient May 11, 2016

Dr. Altaf exceeded all of my expectations for my daughter's medical care. He is caring, friendly and courteous. He listened to all of our concerns and explained everything remarkably well. He spent much time with us and did not make us feel rushed or unimportant. I am very grateful for him.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 8, 2016


OU Physicians Patient Apr 1, 2016

Extremely knowledgeable. Didn't make me feel stupid like cardiologist Dr. ____. (won't be back to see him if I can help it) He really heard me out. Liked how he addressed both my son and me.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 16, 2016

Dr. Altif is an excellent doctor. I have the best respect for him and his opinions.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 16, 2016

Dr. Altaf and his staff are GREAT. He is very informative and explains medical issues in a way that is understandable and clear to both myself and my 15 year old son. He shows a genuine concern for my son's condition in wanting to get him well. And although I am sure Dr. Altaf has many patients in his care, he acts with a sense of urgency which makes me feel like my child is his priority when we are visiting.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 10, 2016

He seemed to know very little about my son's pre-existing conditions and did not appear to listen to me when I had questions or comments. The appointment seemed rushed, and after waiting an hour and 15 minutes to see the doctor, I would think he would spend more than 5 or 10 minutes with my son.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 18, 2015

Dr. Altaf did a great job explaining my child's condition and possible treatment plans. I was very comfortable with him and felt like he cared about making my son better.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 4, 2015

He is amazing talking to me and working with my child. He even makes my other son, who was not the patient feel involved.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 14, 2015

They are an amazing office- I can't say enough good things.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 4, 2015

Dr. Altaf is a fantastic doctor! Extremely knowledgeable, courteous, kind, attentive, calm, reassuring, NEVER patronizing (on the contrary). Reward this hard-working, devoted medical professional! We're so lucky he came to Oklahoma. My daughter is doing very well under his care. We're extremely grateful.

OU Physicians Patient May 5, 2015

We have been to many doctors in the state over the past 3 years trying to figure out what is wrong with my daughter. Since coming to OU Children's, I feel that we are finally getting some answers and help for my daughter. We could not be more pleased and grateful.

OU Physicians Patient May 5, 2015

We could not be happier with the care & respect Dr. Altaf has shown our family over the last few years.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 14, 2015

We love Dr. Altaf. He is a wonderful physician and we are so happy to have him on _____'s team!
