When I showed up for my appointment the office had absolutely no idea who I was. They told me they did not have my appointment in their records and that they no longer use zocdoc. I checked my emails and confirmedthat I did in fact have an appointment with this doctor and told them that I need to be seen. Finally, they decided they could squeeze me in. They kept me waiting for the doctor for over an hour when all I needed was 5 minutes with him. When I looked in the hallway the doctor was sitting at a computer quite relaxed, no care in the world that he had patients waiting. I finally had to tell the nurse that I had to get back to work and could not wait any longer. After I said that the doctor then came to my room almost immediately. Overall the doctor was nice and helped me with what I needed. However the experience at the office was subpar and quite frustrating. If the office isn't using zocdoc anymore then I'm not sure why they are listed on the site and allowed me to make an appointment. If they do make appointments through zocdoc they should honor them. I'll find another allergist.

I went with my 2 (7 and 9) daughters for allergy testing, we all liked her a lot. The staff was very nice and caring as well. We had visited a different allergist down in Phoenix and they were nice, butI wanted a new start, as fresh opinion, as our situation has changed. I am very glad we did.

She was most thorough, as always, and patient (pardon the pun) and pleasant, as always, while describing this and that, answering questions and giving me information and suggestions. She also fully described her thoughts and reasons for seeinga related doctor and for having some testing done. I appreciate her "we're in this together" approach.
