Dr. Livingston was great! As a person with multiple chronic health issues, I’m used to doctors blowing me off. Dr. Livingston was really engaged and empathetic and seemed determined to help me. I left my appointment feeling hopeful instead of dejected, which almost never happens.

Office staff should have more professionalism. They were rude and had Steve Wilkos playing while children were in the waiting room.

I had a really pleasant consultation and allergy test on my first visit with Dr. Livingston. She got right to the root of my problem, explained everything clearly and patiently, and even prescribed me a new medicated cream right away formy eczema, to try to get me off of the steroid creams that I had currently been using (they're not recommended for long-term use). The nurse who saw me was also very pleasant and professional.

The total visit took more than two and a half hours.y appt was scheduled for 11 AM, I arrived at 10:55 AM and did not leave the office until after 1:30 PM. I know allergy testing is rigorous, but I didnot expect it to take that long, nor was I alerted before hand that it would take that long for a complete appointment.

She was pleasant and answered my questions to the best of her ability. She didn't really explain why I might be having the symptoms I do, but I think she might have been a little perplexed by them. Overall she was good & I will follow up with her again.

I liked Dr. LIvingston very much - she was friendly, easy to talk to, was patient and listened well, didn't try to rush me out of the office, was very well informed about allergies/asthma, and gave me options for medication andtreatment. I was seen on time, not kept waiting between tests, and her entire staff was friendly, courteous, and made me feel at home. I will be going back to Dr. Livingston and I highly recommend her to anyone with asthma/allergy problems!
