Dr. Karim has been my allergy doctor for many years now and he is wonderful! He listens to his patients and works with great diligence to make sure my allergies stay under control. The staff is fantastic, they always greet me with a smile and ask about my family while I wait to get my allergy shots. They are also great about giving the shots, quick and painless.

I started going here to fix some of my allergy problems to try and fix some of my acid reflux issues. I have been going weekly to get allergy shots for the past 6 months and I feel immensely better and have never had any side effects to the shots. Everyone that works here is extremely friendly and remembers me every time I walk in and have great conversations with you to make you feel like a part of the family. Dr. Karim is very knowledgeable and gives great advice to how you can make lifestyle changes that will help allergy problems as well as just medicine and shots.

I was very disappointed in this practice. The office staff is very unprofessional. For instance, one of the staff had a very public "disagreement" with a patient for all in the office to witness. They were rude to me and I did not feel confident in the cleanliness of the practice. The lab Air conditioning was broken and they were using a window unit. It was a dirty environment in all areas. They announce your full name over an intercom system. No patient privacy & billing/insurance issues
