This idiot thinks it was a good idea to take vacation during allergy season. Clear cut case of yet another doctor who has no sence of duty or responsibility. Furthermore why would you only have one doctor in your practice what if there was an emergency and you couldn’t see your patients. You don’t care no medical provider does that why your office hours are during the day when 90% of your patients work 1st shift. That would be a clear cut case of you ppl care more about yourself than your patie

Dr. Szekely is the best -- medical knowledge, listens, communicates ... truly cares. Staff, especially the manager, is extremely professional, kind, helpful. Everything is transparent & very cost effective (especially here in NE OH). Highly recommended!

I would never recommend this doctor. She basically made me feel like a bad mother when I asked her questions regarding my son's medication. When I called her with a follow up question, she refused to call me back, instead having her staff tell me, "She has already answered all of your questions, you need to go back to your pediatrician." I'm sorry I did not have the same experience of the other reviewers, but I would absolutely never go back.

Have had trouble with Doctors in the past so I was prepared to feel the same and leave discouraged....What a pleasant surprise! Dr. Szekely and her staff were wonderful. Left with all my questions answered and a treatment plan. What a plus! A Doctor that listens!

n the scene of Allergy professionals, this is the Ritz Carlton of them all, and even if I moved far away, I would without hesitation do whatever it took to continue to be a patient of Dr. Rachel Szekely. I appreciate this team and this practice more than I can express and am enjoying having my quality of life back. If you are even on the fence of using this practice or not, I can't encourage you enough to give them a try. You won't be sorry!

Dr. Szekely is great! She, and her staff are some of the most caring medical professionals I have ever met. Her hours are great (open late). They build in time for same or next day appointments for new patients. She took the time to make sure she understood my symptoms and gave me helpful solutions. I was never pressured into allergy shots. I chose to get them on my own after a while. Alex (practice manager) thoroughly explained insurance/billing and made sure everything was cost effective

I am so happy that I came to see Dr. Szekely! She is friendly, kind, a good listener, and a true pro at what she does! I had some allergy tests done that I was very anxious about, and her and her staff couldn't have been more caring and understanding! She took all of my concerns seriously, and prescribed me exactly what I needed! Her office, Allergy Centers of Northeast Ohio, in Mentor, is also very welcoming to new patients and well prepared to suit anyone's needs! Highly recommended!!!

Dr. Szekely was absolutely amazing! I was nervous about the testing, and she was very patient and kind. She is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain things. We had great conversation after only meeting for few mins ~ I would recommend her to anyone. Happy Customer, T.T

Dr. Szekely was absolutely amazing! I was nervous about the testing, and she was very patient and kind. Alex even came in the room to sit down with me privately about what I would owe and what insurance would cover, including my deductible. I tested positive for every single environment allergy I was tested for including a few food allergies and needed to be prescribed an EpiPen, and Dr. Szekeley stayed with me patiently and kindly answering my questions almost an hour after close
