About

Bio

I am a board certified allergist/immunologist who has suffered from hayfever, asthma and food allergy for as long as I can remember. I take these problems seriously and try to educate the people I see as much as I can in a practical way.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
