Allergy, Immunology


Northwestern University, Ross University


My favorite part of any patient encounter is when I get to have a conversation about what the diagnosis means for the patient. My job, at the end of the day, is for my patients to feel empowered by their condition and to understand their treatment options. Providing that same kind of accessible information to the public is so important to me.
