As an allergy patient myself and the mother of children with allergies, I understand on a personal level how allergies impact everyday life. I enjoy working closely with patients and their families to develop an individualized plan to manage their allergies and asthma. Because allergic disorders are often chronic conditions, they require a partnership between the doctor and patient. I find getting to know my patients and working closely with them to control their allergies the most satisfying part of being a doctor. I use a combination of environmental controls, medications, and immunotherapy (allergy shots) to control allergies. I work with each patient to understand their concerns, goals, and preferences so that together we come up with an approach to best manage their allergies.
