Dr. Shield was the first doctor we met with (in a three year span!) that truly focused on our daughter's immune deficiency and helped our family get her the care she needed and deserved. He has been an excellent partner and resource for our daughter's care and was open to listening to our questions and ideas about different options and paths we'd considered. We happily travel over an hour to see him for her care and will continue to do so!

We were referred to Dr. Shield by my children's primary care pediatrician. Dr. Shield and his staff were kind, courteous, and prompt. He answered all of our questions & concerns. I would recommend him to anyone in the area looking for an allergy specialist. A++

I have multiple issues and was ill for 3 months and on 4 different antibiotics. I was referred to Dr Shield by my dermatologist. He did a blood work up and found my immunity was very low which explains my constant recurring illnesses ( sinus, respiratory, flu, etc.) I have celiac disease and Barrettes Esophagus, among other issues and to have him find out a REASON that I can't seem to get completely well AND offer an answer on how to fix it was INCREDIBLE!!! This was in just 2 appointments!

My son had severe allergies beginning at 5 years old. He began going to see Dr. Shield soon after and it was suggested he get allergy shots for 5 years. He's 10 now and all done with his shots - he's allergy free! We are happy with the entire experience.
