Does it really matter who your allergist is?
We currently use a *local* allergist who we really like, but are lucky enough to live in the Baltimore/Washington area where we have access to some of the *top* national allergists around.
Does it really matter who your allergist is? Does is gain us anything to go to one of the *top* doctors?
I like the fact that we never have to wait more than a day or two when I need to schedule an appointment (unless Vincent's had a reaction and they want to see us ASAP) and that whenever I've called the *on call* doctor they've gotten back to me within minutes.
Please help me weigh out keeping our current allergist vs. going to a *top* allergist (by the way, our allergist was rated as one of the top pediatric allergist in the area, just not a *top* allergist nationwide.
