Allergy and asthma specialists can help: but how do you choose the right one? Those diagnosed with allergies and/or asthma need quality care from a person whose "goal is to bring your life back to normal with optimum control of these conditions using the least possible medications." At the Center for Asthma & Allergy, we see a person – not a problem. We remember that our patients are people first. Dr. Shah founded the Center for Asthma & Allergy almost 16 years ago in the hopes of "touching as many lives positively, in as many ways possible – everyday." Our cutting edge knowledge, state-of-the-art technology, and modern equipments allow Dr. Shah to offer the best quality care for our allergy and asthma patients. Dr. Shah conducts free asthma screenings in local libraries, churches, health fairs and firehouses in and around Shirley, New York, because "making a difference" is the most important part of Dr. Shah's job.
