Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McLean "My practice is dedicated to the diagnosis and practical management of allergies. Our primary focus is to assist patients in application of environmental measures and medications that better control their symptoms and quality of life. Those not responding to the above noted measures are sometimes offered the option of allergy injections if they qualify for that therapy. The office is dedicated to improving the patient knowledge base and using the information to create a proactive, preventative medicine approach whenever possible."
