Christiansburg, VA |
Dr. Kwak was helpful not only with my allergies but a few other health concerns I had when I was in her office. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the difficulty in speaking with someone or getting an appointment in a reasonable amount of time. Coming from a highly populated area with MANY allergists to meet with and speak to it is strange to be in an area with so few.

I would not recommend Dr. Kwak, I saw her in 2015 and tested positive for 23 allergies and she never recommended allergy shots. The Dr. recommended that I take Claritin, Allegra or Zyrtec. I told her that I have taken all 3 of these in the past and nothing worked. She told me to keep taking one of them eventually it will work. My allergies have not improved since 2015.

I've been going to Dr. Kwak for probably about 10 years now. I started with allergy shots and have been sing her ever since I developed some other weird food allergies. She is very personable and kind. She's been very helpful and has tried all kinds of remedies for me. She definitely listens when I talk. On the down side, there is usually a wait, but I find that to be a trade off versus visiting an office like Carillon where they don't really listen to you or spend time trying.

I would highly recommend Dr. Kwak for allergy related issues. My three children have been seeing Dr. Kwak for the last couple of years for food related allergies. Food allergies are so tricky and scary and Dr. Kwak was very thorough in going over each allergy for each of my children. She is very kind and compassionate, listens to everything I have to say, and doesn't make me feel rushed at all when we are in there. We love her and her nurses!!

Don't even bother going here if you want quality results and especially promptness! The receptionist is beyond worthless...
Visited the Wytheville, VA office. The phone number there does not forward to Dr.Kwaks office in Christiansburg and no one answers the Wytheville phone except on the day the Dr. is in Wytheville. The Christiansburg number is not on the appointment card, just the Wytheville number. This is extremely frustrating, especially for elderly patients. Why would the Wytheville number not be forwarded to the Christiansburg office ?
