Care Philosophy

Dr. Robert Eitches and his associate Dr. Maxine Baum are considered two of the best allergy and asthma specialists in Los Angeles. They have patients from Beijing to Berlin, India to Indio and Bel Air to Bellflower. Both are Assistant Clinical Professors at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA as well as attending physicians at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. They deliver this care in an atmosphere in which the patient is treated with kindness and respect. The doctors and staff do what is necessary to ensure that the patient/family fully understand their condition and treatment plan. Their goal is to provide superb allergy care in a warm and nurturing environment. Whenever possible, natural treatment approaches are used. Steroid usage is kept to a minimum. When immunotherapy is used to get at the source of the problem, it can frequently be done safely at home through drops under the tongue.Read more
