Dr. Nassef is an amazing pediatric allergist. My son is a non-verbal autistic child that has many food and seasonal allergies. Dr. Nassef takes the time to hear all of my concerns and truly helps treat my son’s allergy symptoms. I appreciate her concern for my child. I highly recommend Dr. Nassef and her diligent staff.

First time visit to Dr Nassef was met with total satisfaction. Unlike other allergist she does the testing herself and does it accurately. At a top rated teaching hospital Ive watched an assistant not make enough contact with my sons skin and having to be retested because I didn’t want to rule anything out. Results came back conflicted. There are many Doctors giving poor levels of care. Dr Nassef is not one of them. Your concerns are listened to and dealt with education and reason.

Very disappointed in visiting doctor Nassef. She was recommended as a highly qualified specialist. When we came in with our son who has eczema on his body and our understanding that we would get a full panel test done to figure out what is the root cause. Instead the doctor spent all of 5 minutes, did one test and charged us a huge fee. After calling her she was not helpful and offered to examine our son again and bill us again. It is unfortunate that dr Nassef is regarded so highly, overrated
