I didn't really feel listened to and nothing helped me. I was given an inhaler that was generic and not helpful. This doctor might be a fit for some patients, but not for me.

I have been coming to see Dr. Petrak for a few years, and I have never been disappointed. Her entire staff is friendly, prompt and thorough. It's also always very easy to make an appointment, whether its online or via phone.Dr. Petrak always spends enough time with me to understand what my symptoms are and explains how we are going to address the cause together. If you have the unfortunate need for an allergy/asthma specialist, I highly recommend Dr. Petrak.

Dr. Betty Petrak is kind and compassionate and very knowledgeable. I liked her holistic approach, she asked me a lot of questions about my current condition and other illnesses that I have. She examined me thoroughly, gave me short-time recommendationson what to do if I get a wasp bite during my upcoming vacation trip to Europe and scheduled a test for me after the trip. She showed me how to use epipen. I came with a bad headache and she helped me with this as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Petrak to anyone seeking an allergist.

Not good…I wasn't told not to take antihistamines for 5 days prior to the appt., so after waiting to see the doctor I was told I'd have to come back for another appt. for the allergy tests…This costs me time andanother co-pay…Also, Dr. Petrak's bedside manner could be greatly improved...

I really liked how kind and gentle she was. She didn't just assume that I had the average symptoms and took time to listen and run accurate tests. We found out I have cat allergies and she didn't just say "getrid of the cats"; instead she discussed other options and was completely non-judgmental. I will be going back!
