“As an allergy sufferer myself, I am keenly aware of the significant burden allergies can have on one’s quality of life. I take very seriously my responsibility as a physician to accurately diagnose and treat the entire spectrum of allergic and immunologic disorders. I am committed to working with patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers to develop a plan of care specifically tailored to individual needs. For complex cases, I proactively collaborate with relevant specialists such as ENT, dermatology, pulmonary and gastroenterology providers to ensure that my patients receive the best possible care. I am an avid patient advocate, and firmly believe that educating patients and family members on their disease is critical to improving health outcomes. I look forward to partnering with you.”
