Care Philosophy

My interest in allergy and immunology comes from personal and family experience with asthma and allergies. Therefore, I have been highly motivated to pursue this area of expertise and receive great satisfaction in knowing I can positively affect the lives of my patients. I treat both adults and children suffering from the symptoms of food allergies, allergic and nonallergic rhinitis, asthma, chronic and acute sinusitis and urticaria or hives. My focus is not only to eliminate or decrease the impact of the disease process but to educate patients so that they can control it. I thoroughly enjoy serving the NorthShore University HealthSystem community as well as being a valuable resource for allergic & immunological evaluations.

No smile, no patience, bad experience
Denver, CO |
Went in for daughter's allergy screening. Doctor misdiagnosed skin condition & we needed to follow up with her pediatrician the next day. Doctor never looked at child's diaper area that was mentioned & it turned out to be impetigo (contagious) NOT eczema (not contagious). She didn't spend any time explaining the allergy test results & just said come back when she's two. Terrible experience when you have a 14 month old with a limited diet who is allergy to a dozen things. Will not be back.
