About Dr. Ellen Buchbinder

** Please note there will be a $60 cancellation fee for appointments not cancelled within 24hrs. Dr. Ellen Buchbinder is one of New York's "Top Doctors" in her field of Allergy and Immunology. In her experience as a physician, scholar and musician, Dr. Buchbinder has developed a unique philosophy of caring and compassion for her patients. Dr. Buchbinder's goal is to help patients of all ages, from pre-adolescence through adulthood, enjoy their lives both indoors and outdoors with minimal allergic symptoms. Dr. Buchbinder's practice is entirely devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disorders, including asthma, nasal and sinus allergy, food allergy, animal dander allergy (e.g. dogs and cats), medication allergy, bee sting allergy, urticaria (hives) and angioedema, eczema and allergic contact dermatitis. By discovering each patient's allergies and hypersensitivities in the consultation and testing phase, Dr. Buchbinder can design an effective treatment plan. A critical part of Dr. Buchbinder's work involves caring for patients who suffer from severe allergic reactions, including allergic pulmonary (lung) disease, allergic skin disease, and allergic nasal and sinus disease. By detecting the allergic components in serious illnesses, Dr. Buchbinder can dramatically improve her patients' quality of life. Very often these factors are previously unsuspected and undiagnosed. Each patient presents a unique variety of allergic responses. Dr. Buchbinder uses her extensive expertise to create a successful customized treatment plan for each individual patient. She continues to distinguish herself by incorporating all the most recent advances in the field into her work. She is interested, motivated and challenged to solve unique and individual allergic problems.

Dr Buchbinder is extraordinary! I have never met a doctor as wise or caring as she is. I saw her yesterday for an appt and she identified an allergic reaction that might easily be life threatening. All my other drs hadmissed it. As importantly Dr Bucnbinder listened thoughtfully and spent almost 90 minutes with me really thinking through my issues. In short: Dr Buchbinder is amazing. I cant recommend her highly enough. (Her whole office staff is very nice as well.)

Dr. Buchbinder lived up to her reputation! her office was very accommodating, and I was seen by the doctor right after checking in. Dr. Buchbinder listened to my concerns and tested me accordingly. We discovered I was very allergic to dustmites, and blood work was sent to the lab for further investigation on another possible allergy. She spent a substantial amount of time with me and provided ways to manage my allergy. A++ doctor!

Dr. Buchbinder was the second allergist that I had seen. She was extremely thorough and clearly an expert in her field. She shared the same desire to identify the cause of an illness that I had. I would recommend to others.

I got to the office 10 minutes before my appointment so that I could fill out the necessary paperwork. But my appointment started half an hour later than scheduled which peeved me. However, Dr. Buchbinder was incredibly kind and explained everything clearly. As an allergist, I highly recommend.
