I was so impressed, with his understanding what I was trying to tell him and his abilitiy to help me understand what was going on with me. I loved he gave me written instructions...after 30 years of suffering with this, I think he may be who is going to finally put a handle on this. I didn’t feel like...ok here is a prescripton, pay at the front desk on your way out. He took his time and did the tests needed to get a good idea where I was at and what I need. I’m excited.

Dr. Szema is a gifted, caring doctor and an exceptional diagnostician. It is rare to find a doctor who is so engaged, helpful and genuinely concerned about his patient's welfare. After numerous bouts with respiratory illness, wheezing, allergic reactions, and repeated sinus infections, I was able to find a place where my health concerns were assessed accurately and my health problems solved. He always takes the time to fully answer my questions and explain my future health plan. He is AMAZING!
