Went to see doctor fajt in April 2019, acted like I was wasting her time, I actually had to ask her to test me for allergies and she had an attitude with me. The office wasn’t ready for me to Be tested and she complained because she had to clean it up before she tested me. She claims I don’t have any allergies!!!! Then why In the hell are my eyes itchy and watery, and why do I get hives and why do I sneeze constantly and have congestion. My labs showed that i was a allergic to foods and she said the tests were wrong. Her bedside manner is awful and would not recommend her to any one. She got smart with me when I said I have to have some type of allergies because I have allergies symptoms. And plus all my other physicians claim I have allergies.

I have had allergies and asthma my whole life and dealt with the sudden crippling effects it can have on life. It was not until I saw Dr. Merritt Fajt that I truly understood that I had "small airway disease" making it unique. I applaud Dr Fajt for her diligence in testing and providing answers I have had my whole life about my disease and her diligence in finding a treatment plan that worked for me. I am a healthcare worker and strongly recommend her to anyone with asthma or allergies!
