About Me

Care Philosophy
  • I specialize in Allergy Asthma & Immunology. My approach to the allergic patient is to identify the offending allergen & help the patient eliminate the trigger from the environment or diet. I also provide the patient with a detailed management plan using medications to control the symptoms associated with Allergy & Asthma. For those patients who fail environmental controls and medical management, I offere desensitization therapy in order to immunize the patient against the offending allergens.
