Dr. Mary C. Tobin, MD

Allergy & Immunology | Female | 65 years old

The most important thing - in anything in medicine - is the history and what the patient tells you. And an allergist takes a very detailed history about things that most people - most physicians - don't ask about. We ask: how old is your mattress, how old is your pillow, do you have animals sleeping in the bedroom, what kind of heating do you have? So we ask all kinds of questions about their everyday lives to try and figure out how they're affected by their environment. Society's approach to allergies is that you just live with them. So when patients come to see us they're pretty miserable. And they've tried most of the over-the-counter solutions, and it's not enough. And so they really want some guidance about what it is that could be causing them so much distress. And they also want to be a partner in the solution.Read more
