I posted this on the Dr's board as well, but I see that there isn't very much traffic there, so I thought I'd try here [img][/img]

Our middle dd has seen an allergist in Rochester (Dr. Dreyfus), but I wasn't thrilled with him. After our dd had an ana reaction, he suggested just to try and avoid peanuts. He's much older and possibly out of date with things. His bedside manner was great, I just want a Dr that is more aggressive when my dd's life depends on it.

Since our dd has had another peanut reaction, has now been DX'd with asthma and her eczema has been terrible for months, I think it's time she saw another allergist to try to get things under control (it's been a year since she saw the first one).

If anyone knows of a good allergist in or around Rochester, I would love to hear about it your experiences!!!!!

Thank you!

Are you willing to drive to Buffalo? We see Dr. Kent, who is also older but VERY thorough. I am very happy with him and I have heard good things about the others as well. They have 3 offices , here is a link to their web site.

Dr. Mariola Kubicka has been FABULOUS in our opinion. She is at 3 different offices
Westfall Rd 585-442-0150
Greece 585 225-5735
Perinton 585-425-1805
She was the first doctor to not berate me for believing that diet was a big cause of my kids' eczema. She also seems to listen well and I think they are very thorough.

Thanks for your replies!
Due to our insurance, we couldn't go out of network without a huge process, and even then there is no gaurentee it would be approved [img][/img]
I will call the Dr in Rochester and see if they are taking new patients.
