Dr. Wachter is the most conscientious, competent, experienced and trustworthy doctor I've known. He has an excellent demeanor, is extremely knowledgeable in his field and serves as speaker and consultant to various immunology organizations. I personally can't think of a more qualified doctor or anyone else I'd rather have as a resource and allergist.
