Dr. Reisacher is an Otolaryngic Allergist who joins the Faculty of Weill Cornell Medical College as Assistant Professor of Otorhinolaryngology and the Director of Allergy within the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery (ENT). His clinical expertise lies in the diagnosis and management of airborne and food allergies in adults and children. He uses the latest desensitization techniques, including sublingual immunotherapy (drops placed under the tongue at home), along with minimally-invasive skin-testing methods. As a board-certified Otolaryngologist, he is able to offer his patients the most effective balance of surgical and medical treatment for sinus and nasal problems to help them regain their quality of life and return as quickly as possible to the activities they enjoy.
