Great Visit. Staff got me in on time and told me what would be going on. They ran couple tests. Doctor Shield came in and explained what everything meant. Got everything taken care of in a timely manner. Enjoyed talking with Dr. Shield and his staff. Feel very confident in the info they provided.

I experienced very debilitating allergy & Asthma related illnesses for years to include acute bronchitis numerous times a year for decades. I finally made an appointment with Dr. Sheild and he tested me for allergies and prescribed allergy shots which have been nothing short of a miracle. Now 2 years plus I have been playing golf during the peak allergy seasons and taking less medication to include less frequent allergy shots. I am steadily improving all pulmonary functions and can’t thank him adequately for having changed my appreciation for life’s good times.

Dr. Shield, I believe to be a good man, but his office manager has given me the run around for close to 7 months now. She has lied, mislead me and given me false information. My concern is that Dr. Shield has no idea what she is doing. In the end, I am contacting the AMA, have spoken to my attorney and searching for an allergist with an honest office manager.

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.
