Bio

Dr. Alt’s clinical practice is focused on sinus and nasal diseases including management of acute and chronic sinusitis, polyps, allergy, septal deviation, growths and tumors of the sinuses and skull base, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks. Dr. Alt works with a large multi-disciplinary team that consists of neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, head and neck pathologists, and specialized otolaryngology (ENT) cancer surgeons to ensure the best treatment outcomes. In addition to his clinical practice, he is actively involved in research and is a co-investigator on a multi-institutional grant from the National Institutes of Health to study treatment outcomes for sinus disease. He is also interested in examining the relationship between the immune system’s inflammatory markers and chronic sinusitis-specific disease severity; thereby further elucidating how microscopic aspects of disease relate to macroscopic clinical measures. He currently serves as a faculty member in Head and Neck Surgery and is the Associate Director of the Rhinology-Sinus and Skull Base Surgery Program at the University of Utah.

January 12, 2017

I have been treated by many ENTs in my life, Dr Alt is the best! I always leave appointments satisfied and happy that everything is being done to keep my sinuses as healthy as they can be. Always an inviting, professional, and productive experience.

December 16, 2016

Dr. ALT was AWESOME

December 11, 2016

just super frustrated as to why I am getting constant nosebleeds all the time that neither Wilson or Alt can figure out how to make my nose heal permanently

October 26, 2016

Dr. Alt is a fantastic surgeon. He always expresses concern for the patient while conveying confidence. I trust his expertise and experience in his given field and know that I am always in great hands with him. I also appreciate his willingness to follow up with continued care, particularly when illness or other concerns arise.

October 07, 2016

Dr. Alt is so compassionate and so sweet about everything. He really wants to make the patient feel better and move on with their lives.

June 28, 2016

I had had a less than great experience with another provider in the ENT clinic and haven't returned for several years. Dr. Alt and his staff were thorough in gathering information, considerate as he explained the findings on the scope. The plan of care was formulated with my prior history discussed. I was thankful for the fine care.

June 26, 2016

I was not asked what steps I take for my sinus healthcare, he basically told me everything that I already knew, except he added a new spray medication. I have many allergies, and did purchase an OTC spray he suggested, I have already discarded it as it irritated my mucous tissue, I had a headache in the morning so I have gone back to what I know works without irritating my tissues.

June 26, 2016

good

June 24, 2016

Dr. Alt is an incredible doctor. He is caring and expresses that to you. When he's with you it's like you're the only patient he has that day and he'll give you as much time as you need.

March 23, 2016

I was very impressed with Dr. Alt. he spent a lot of time with me and answered all of my questions. He really made me feel comfortable and it answered s lot off questions.

March 20, 2016

Dr Alt was very thorough in giving clear instructions about post operative care at home. However, due to the tendency to forget somethings with the stress of facing or having surgery it would be helpful to give the patient more than a sheet with generalized instructions. A few more written statements about what to do and not to do and when would be helpful.

March 11, 2016

He seemed genuinely concerned about my welfare and his desire to help me.

February 16, 2016

First experience with Dr. Alt, his chief resident and other staff. They did a great job.

January 26, 2016

Very impressed with Dr. Alt, his knowledge and expertise doing my surgery.

January 12, 2016

Dr. Alt is excellent.

December 11, 2015

Dr. Alt demonstrates an exemplary degree of good bed-side manner. He's also an outstanding practioner in his area. he had an instantanious understanding of my symptomes and knew precisely how do to deal with them. he's wonderful.

December 05, 2015

Dr. Alt and staff were all very excellent.

November 27, 2015

Not enough detail providing on the procedure and the degree of swelling, bruising to expect from the upcoming procedure. Gave impression that the healing process would be much faster than it really is. Not a realistic overview of what to expect. Please be more honest with patients.

November 10, 2015

I do appreciate Dr. Alt. He is very amazing at his job and his beside manner. My frustration in the prior comments is not with him. Dr. Alt goes above and beyond the call of duty to make sure his patients are taken care of. I was referred by another patient because of the quality of care that Dr. Alt offers and his knowledge.

November 07, 2015

All personnel involved were excellent and provided very good answers to our questions. Dr Alt was especially great with his explanations and out concerns.

November 04, 2015

just fine except pain

September 23, 2015

I would give my confidence rating for my care provider much higher than "very good." Dr. Alt is amazing and I trust him completely.

August 21, 2015

Dr. Alt is an excellent Dr. an outstanding bedside manner.

August 07, 2015

Dr. Alt is amazing! He always takes time with us and his compassion shows he truly cares about my son. I would not want to take my child anywhere else for treatment or follow-up. It is worth the drive and the time spent getting there. I completely trust Dr. Alt with the care of my precious son.

July 29, 2015

Dr. Alt has been amazing. I am so grateful he's my ENT.

July 17, 2015

At this point I still have the issue but I'm going to do what the doctor told me and if it fixes the problem I will definitely recommend.

June 17, 2015

Dr. Alt is wonderful, as is his entire staff. He is very personable, knowledgeable, and easy to speak with. I have already recommended him to a friend.

April 28, 2015

I felt the provider was very in tuned with me and my wife and listened to every thing we had to say

April 10, 2015

This was our first visit with Dr. Alt. He was personable and professional and well studied. He cited "the literature" often. Was surprised that he didn't look at patients EHR in the room or examine the patient very much. That was all done by the Resident before Dr. Alt came into the room. It appeared that Dr. Alt consulted with the Resident prior to entering the room.

March 23, 2015

Dr. Alt has been an amazing doctor. I am consistently impressed with the time he takes to make sure I understand the procedures he has suggested and the reasons behind his suggestions. He is kind, thorough and compassionate. I have recommended him to several friends.

March 10, 2015

Dr. Alt did an amazing job on my nasal surgery. The surgery took a lot longer than anticipated, but he was thorough and made sure to correct all of the issues he found during surgery, so I would not have to come back for additional procedures. I'm very impressed with his abilities and his caring attitude. During my post-op visit he thoroughly explained what he had done during surgery and he was very caring during my appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Alt as a provider.

March 09, 2015

I had a very positive experience. I was well taken care of!

January 12, 2015

Dr Alt would receive a 7+ in all areas.

January 10, 2015

I will recommend Dr. Alt to anyone needing that type of specialist. In fact, I already have.

November 17, 2014

Dr Alt is excellent with no complaints. The Resident who saw me before Doctor Alt seemed timid and inexperienced.

November 09, 2014

The medication instructions that Dr. Alt gave were different than the instructions later given by the Medical Assistant. The drug company agreed with Dr. Alt's instructions, but I will have to have contact his office to clarify what I need to do once I get the medication

October 23, 2014

Dr. Alt is THE BEST surgeon and healer that I have ever known. I am so thankful for his knowledge, expertise and compassion. He is truly an expert in his field. Yet he also really cares about his patients and their health. Never before have I recovered from a surgery with such ease and true healing. His personality is contagious; I enjoy my visits. My life is changed because of his work, his ability and his care. Dr. Alt's team works well together and each person contributes to my growing positive health experience. Thank you for healing my nose.

September 19, 2014

I have been seeing Dr. Alt for roughly a year now. He is a fantastic physician. He spends a lot of time listening to all of my concerns and addressing all of my questions. He is so good to explain to me what he is thinking and what all of my treatment options are.

August 14, 2014

There was some confusion on my part initially as to how to treat the infection that was mostly antibiotic resistant. Called the office back and received an answer immediately.

July 24, 2014

Dr. Alt was one of the best doctors ever! Highly intelligent, personable, very clear, pleasant, and best of all actually paid attention to my son and me rather than just typing in a computer. I think having the assistant do the typing while the doctors focuses in on the patient and what the patient is saying is the best approach. Kudos to Dr. Alt and to U of U ENT for using this wonderful approach to patient care!

June 29, 2014

Very good

June 24, 2014

great

June 05, 2014

Dr Alt and Becky Bell are top notch in my book

May 31, 2014

Last year I had very bad sinus problem, after consulting my former pcp, he kept saying that I was okay and didn't give me correct treatment. However, after I decided to see Dr. Alt, he showed me what my problem was, gave me correct treatment and now the sinus doesn't bother me. Dr Alt is very nice, patient and willing to listen, and most important his diagnosis is very accurate. Dr Alt is an excellent doctor. Thank you so much, Dr Alt!

April 04, 2014

Dr. Alt is a fantastic doctor as well as a great person. I will always recommended him for any ENT services.

April 01, 2014

I was amazed that the doctor took his time explaining everything to me, he wasn't rushing, and I understood everything he told me. the nurse was very supportive and was there for any questions I had.

March 20, 2014

The entire experience was positive.

March 16, 2014

Thank you Dr. Alt for helping me feel comfortable and well taken cared of.

March 06, 2014

Loved Dr. Alt and his staff. Very good care. I will be back.

March 04, 2014

Wonderful.

February 21, 2014

Dr. Alt is very personable and knowledgeable. He is great to answer all of my questions and I never feel rushed.

January 27, 2014

Felt all involved listened to my concerns and explained information thoroughly.

January 26, 2014

Dr. Alt had received input from Dr. Couldwell and was well prepared to work with my concerns.

January 16, 2014

Dr. Ault is a patient-oriented doctor who really cares about his patient (me). I am impressed with his knowledge. He is the kind of doctor I wish they all could be.

January 14, 2014

very impressed. I am grateful he has taken the time to include me in his patient load

January 09, 2014

I have seen a handful of doctors for almost 10 years for my condition, and this is the first time I actually got answers. I cannot thank Dr. Alt enough for his knowledge, expertise, and kindness. Such an amazing experience. I would highly recommend to anyone.
