Dr Sprehe is a great doctor I have been seeing a little over a year now. On the one occasion I needed him after hours he was available and called in the medication that I needed. He then followed up the next day to see how I was doing. His staff are also friendly and helpful. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an allergy doctor.
