I came to her for seasonal allergies, out of frustration with my normal daily allergy meds. She made me feel silly for coming to her - and left me with no suggestions other than "when the season is over we canre-evaluate". As an allergist - was looking for something a bit more. However, I was able to book the appt quickly and there was no wait

Dr. Zaleska was nice but the only thing she send me to get blood test done and told me most likely they won't find the reason for my allergy (which they didn't), and no other allergy tests. She doesn't believe inholistic way. Basically just told me to take Zyrtec and that was it.

Dr. Zaleska was great--she gave us very clear information, and was wonderful with my 5-year-old. My only issue was that we had a 10:30 appointment, and we had to wait around 20-30 minutes before we were seen.

Dr. Zaleska was fantastic. Did not rush my appointment and made sure I was comfortable during my food allergy testing. She explained things very nicely and calmly. She made sure I understood everything she was telling me. Will definitely goback to her for future allergy needs. The office is quite small, only 3-5 chairs in waiting room. The receptionist was a bit difficult to understand due to her accent, but I can't hold that against the Dr. Parking is terrible. Must park across the street at the PNC bank.

she was friendly and good at explaining test options. for allergy testing. Very thorough in her questioning regarding asthma and allergies to the point where she checked my sons breathing because I said he had a persistent cough that wouldn'tgo away. She wanted to rule out any sort of respiratory infection or sinus issue.

She was very kind, patient, and understanding about my conflicting results to possible gluten sensitivity/ intolerance. Though 2 lab tests pointed to celiac troubles from other GPs vs my colonoscopy and skin test were negative, she was understandingto my inconclusive culprit for the past 4 months w/ a scalp infection. She was open to doing other allergy testing for other possible causes. To the best of her ability and expertise, I feel comfortable she will work with you and your concerns. Thank you, Dr. Zealska :)

I was annoyed that they accept only cash or check for the copay because I have a debit card from my insurance company that is provided to pay for copays. Dr. Zaleska herself was awesome. Highly recommend her. She answered all my questions and I didn't feel rushed.
