Excellent, articulate, clear plan of action and right on time. He zeroed in on and was clear about my overall subset of allergies before the skin test and had a good dose of humor “if there was a plague you’d be in good shape with your histamine responses!”

This was my first visit with Dr. Mainardi. I arrived early and he saw me before my appointed time. He asked many questions to get to the heart of the issue, and then spent quite a bit of time explaining whatwas going on with my condition. His explanations were clearer and more thorough than any doctor I've seen in many years. The staff was also extremely friendly. Very pleased that I found him.

Dr. Mainardi is the best allergist I’ve been to. He’s knowledgeable, explains things to me so I’m better able to understand my allergies and truly cares about my overall well-being. When I have concerns, he always takes them seriously and addressesthem. On top of all this, he’s successfully managed my seasonal allergies so that I can happily survive the spring and summer without frequent illnesses and avoiding the outdoors.

Dr. Mainardi was very easy and straight forward with what medical concerns I had presented to him. Even though it was determined that my medical issues were not associated with an allergy, he was still very helpful in referring for differentinterventions and speaking with me in length in what could have occurred during my reactions. Very easy to talk with and a pleasure to have been seen by.

I went to see Tim regarding a recurring eye redness issue that I've been struggling with on and off for the past couple years. I've seen numerous doctors about it, including an ophthalmologist, and Tim was the first person who mademe feel like there's an end in sight. His explanation about what he thinks the issue is stemming from was thorough and he took the time to walk me through way more information then necessary which made me feel like he really knew his stuff. He was super genuine and easy to talk to- I 100% recommend visiting him, you'll be in good hands!

I visited Dr. Mainardi for an allergy consultation and the experience could not have been better. He asked thorough questions about my allergy history, educated me on the exact type of seasonal allergies I was experiencing and gave advice onwhat I could do to prevent them in the future. I left feeling very informed. Thank you!
