    Comment:  I highly recommend Allergy and Asthma Care of New York. Both of my children saw Dr. Patel and I was extremely happy with her care. It was worth the trek to Manhattan. The office is nice and we never had much wait.We got 2 miracle creams: Hylatopic and Tetrix. Insurance doesn’t cover, so it’s pricey, but effective and worth it on our end. Dr. Patel had to send the scripts to Manhattan Apothecary or Apotheco Pharmacy, as these 2 have some kind of special relationship w the Pharmacy co. to get a discount (unlike, say, Neergaard). Both have free delivery.We had one sm skin spot that did need a wk of steroid cream, but coupled with those miracle lotions, all was finally well. We also layered (and still do) Vaseline on exposed skin when going outside in the winter.I believe Dr. Patel is going out on Family Leave imminently, but I’d still call the office, as someone is assigned to cover for her.http://allergyreliefnyc.com/

    Comment:  If you want a second opinion, I'd see either a GI or an allergist. I'm actually not sure which specialist would be better in this scenario. If you go the allergist route, I recommend the Dr. we saw, Dr. Patel. Unrelated to the CMPA, my son had an issue with eggs when he started solids. She got us all straightened out and he's good with all foods, now. http://allergyreliefnyc.com/best-pediatric-allergist-nyc/

    Comment:  We had an excellent experience with Dr. Patel at Allergy and Asthma Care of NY. She was great. My son had all kinds of problematic rashes that was somehow also eczema. His stemmed from some blessedly-short-lived food issues, but his skin was a mess: face, neck, chest, back, back of the knees. I thought we’d for sure need a ped Derm along w ped Allergist. Nope.I believe scheduling was ~10 days to get in w Dr. Patel. Our midday appt started within 5 min. I loved her bedside manner. My son was a highly squirmy 7-m-old at the time and it was.. interesting. She spoke about needing to heal the skin in order to manage the food problems (basically, reverse engineer it). We got 2 scripts for expensive lotions and still love them a yr later. The scripts are $50/ea and we find it so worth it (hylatopic and tetrix). Only one of the 2 sister pharmacies can fill it (Manhattan Apothecary.. I think), but they do free home delivery.Best if all, Dr. Patel did nearly all follow-up via emailed photos of skin progress. After 1-2 wks of treatment, we weren’t at the cure place she wanted to see, so based on email pics, she wrote scripts for 2 topical steroids (just a wk of use, whew). We had one in-office follow-up 3 months later, which also started on time and was pleasant.Their website is cheesy, FYI. Best to you and your little one.http://allergyreliefnyc.com/

    Comment:  We see Dr. Patel and love him! He's very knowledgeable, not alarmist at all and really good with kids. He also has a lot of knowledge about eczema and allergies and was the first dr we saw who explained it to me in a way I could understand.Did you try calling the number or were you looking online? We have not had a hard time making appointments if you call the office 212-263-9700

    Comment:  I see him for myself and my daughter. I think he’s great. It was actually my old allergist, from Wisconsin, who looked through all the allergists, and was like: go to this one, when I was pregnant and my allergies and asthma kicked up again. He’s a really great physician, well worth the wait.

    Comment:  We had a really wonderful experience with Dr. Patel at Asthma and Allergy Care of New York. She fixed up my son like it was nobody’s business and he’s hive and food sensitivity-free, now. Her office appts started as on time as one could hope for a doctor. Also, she did lots of email follow-up, so we only had to return to the actual office once.In our case, Dr. Patel prescribed a cocktail of “lotions and potions,” as we affectionately call them. In order to heal the hives and sensitivity, we had to heal the skin with specialty, prescription lotions. Whatever - it worked! Plus, I liked her bedside manner.

    Comment:  I had a great experience with Dr. Patel at Allergy and Asthma Care of NY. She had us to the office once, then did the bulk of treatment via email. My son’s issues were fairly straightforward, but I still found her style to be super helpful. We did a 3-month office follow-up. http://allergyreliefnyc.com/
