I really appreciated how quickly the office got me in - for an appointment and back in the room once I arrived at my appointment. Dr. Collaco was nice and knowledgeable. He also didn't make me feel guilty about being nervous (it was my first time at an allergist).

Extremely cavalier approach, didn't read of my chart, or any information from the nurse about my medical history or medications that I take, yet was not necessarily in a hurry. Just practically refusing to use available data for his analysis or recommendations.

He solved a problem that was extremely multifaceted, and have been misdiagnosed by four other physicians. I am in medical liaison for a very large pharmaceutical company, and speak to physicians every single day. Over the span of 20 yearsyou learn to decern very quickly who is on their game and who is not. This guy is as knowledgeable and as thorough as I have ever seen.

Took my daughter to see this doctor. He was incredibly pompous and condescending. I would NEVER recommend him to anyone and regret we went in the first place. The only saving grace was the staff.

My visit with Dr. Collaco was a perfect check-up. He introduced me to his student assistant Hunter who was very professional. Dr. Collaco kindly filled out some extensive Health Accommodation paperwork for my peanut allergy, and we discussedany problems I have had since my previous check-up. Overall, it was a great visit!

I was hesitant on going since it's not close to where I live but this place had the highest reviews. My doctor wanted me to see an allergist since she told me I had asthma and this was news for mesince I have never been told that. He was very direct and to the point with me which I love because I felt he knew what he was talking about. Parking was easy and it was not crowded. The test were annoying but necessary. I do feel confident in having him getting whatever is wrong with me under control.

Went there and stated specifically that I'm allergic to cats and dogs and that I was interested in allergy shots, went through an allergy test to be told "hey you are allergic to cats and dogs, your options are to stayaway from them, allergy pills or shots". Mentioned again that I was interested in shots, and then was told "Well if you are interested in shots we will need to do a full allergy test instead of just the cats and dogs".... Waste of time.

Excellent service and very professional. As a nurse working around doctors every day, it's very refreshing to have a doctor that is 100% realistic, straight forward, but also caring and compassionate. Dr. Collaco took time to listen to whyI was making the visit and he went step by step on what was going on with my situation and the different options I had. I appreciated the amount of time he spent with me to discuss everything, even though I'm also a healthcare professional. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
