“I have been so happy to have found Gerry and Sandi who can take the time and care to restore my Great Grandmother’s furniture! They were able to take apart and put back together; refinish and restore. Fantastic!”

Dear Sandi and Gerry, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for restoring my brother and my tack boxes to such a beautiful treasure. We never imagined the boxes could be salvaged, let alone be so beautiful when completed. My mom saved those for us the best she could over the past 40+years- from Scottsdale- to Fairbanks, Alaska, and back to Scottsdale again….most likely always hoping we would keep them as a reminder of our horse riding days as children. We are so pleased with the work you did to restore them for another 40+ years!”

Broken chair legs and coffee table base, dresser drawers unable to slide on broken rails, chairs distressed and scraped — what to do. Trash? Garage sale? Before we packed them off, we searched the Internet and found The Furniture Doctors. After a diagnosis of the patients, Gerry renewed each piece with expert repairs, making them stronger today than they were on their best day. Sandi followed up using her critical eye, matching color stains and revitalizing each piece. Do your furniture a favor, send them to The Furniture Doctors for a new life, with a quick turn-around, and plenty of TLC.”

“We accidentally broke our large armoire door in half and thought it was a goner. We Googled “furniture repair” in our area. We were so glad to find Gerry and Sandi with their great website. Gerry repaired the door and Sandi finished it beautifully. You would never know it had any damage at all. Plus, they were fairly priced and we didn’t have to wait long. We enthusiastically recommend Gerry Altman for any furniture repair you may have.”

“I am writing today to tell you how pleased I am with the chest, washstand and mirror that you refinished. The finish is beautiful, the color is perfect with the marble, and the new top on the chest is the perfect solution. Our son’s family will enjoy these pieces for years to come. Thank you both for your understanding, your advice and your beautiful work.

“We give FIVE STARS to The Furniture Doctors of Scottsdale! Gerry and Sandy have lovingly restored at least ten pieces of antique furniture for us. Each piece was restored to perfection. They restored all types of furniture from black walnut to rosewood to oak. They also re-caned two chairs for us. Probably the toughest restoration piece we asked them to do was an antique Italianate chair which had a barely discernable intricate marquetry design and a tired looking needlepoint seat. Gerry and Sandy did an outstanding job on the chair! The marquetry inlay just popped and the needlepoint was cleaned and beautiful once again!! What a difference! Gerry and Sandy are quite simply the best!”
