“At Allergy and Asthma Health Care, our philosophy is really very simple: patient care always comes first and our reputation depends on achieving that goal. Our nurses and providers work very hard to help patients understand their allergy, asthma and sinusitis symptoms so that the best treatment can be prescribed and long term healthy, quality lifestyles can be achieved. We sincerely want our patients to understand their laboratory studies, see their CT scans and basically ask questions, no matter how busy our office may be or how many allergy injection patients may be waiting. It is really a privilege to treat patients and watch their symptoms resolve and their lives improve. And we are honored when our patients recommend our office and staff to their family, friends and coworkers, as many patients have already done.

We are now a part of the large and growing Privia network of providers and the Athena Health Care electronic medical record system. Already we have seen improvement in patient care, handling of records, and flow of information from providers to providers and patients. We are very excited about this improvement and look forward to many good years of servicing our community with the best quality care in our specialty of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.”
