Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Novick "When you are evaluated at the Allergy Testing Center you have a comprehensive consultation, exam and often complete skin testing. People often mistakenly think that going to an allergist automatically means you need allergy shots. This is far from the case. Allergists take a very careful history to try to figure out the cause of your symptoms. We are always in contact with your doctor regarding your progress and ongoing treatment."

Patient Comments (2)
in Forest Hills, NY |
Dr. Novick was the only doctor who was able to bring my peak flow number from 250 up to 450, and without oral steroids. I had been battling asthma post 9/11 and had seen both an allergist and two pulmonologists. My PCP recommended Dr. Novick. Now, for over two years I have not had to take an oral steroid to control my asthma symptoms. I can workout at 80% of my heart rate, too. His staff is terrific too. I see him regularly for shots and the nurses give them virtually pain free.
I would not recommend this office both in Queens and Long Island and both places and un helpful. I received allergy shots for about five months and for five months my allergies have not gotten better . I asked one of the nurseS I haven't I gotten better with my allergies and she stated sometimes it just takes a while . I recently moved to another state and I'm receiving a new allergy shots and now I'm on my third dose and I can breathe much better and I'm not blowing my nose as much or at all
I am sorry to see that you were not pleased with our office. I wish I had had the opportunity to discuss your concerns with you. Each person responds differently to Allergy shots, particularly if one lives in different locations. Some take longer to improve than others. I am glad that you are feeling relief. If you return to NY, I hope that we may be able to win your confidence again, as your experience is not at all indicative of our patient care standards.
