In accordance with NY State DOH guidance, patients and visitors are no longer required to wear masks at our offices.   Anyone with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to COVID-19 should wear a high-quality mask when indoors, or out in public.

Why We Are Different

With so much information and misinformation available to patients through the media, our allergists/immunologists use an evidenced-based approach to cut through the noise and provide clear, accurate information for patients. Using extensive history-taking, appropriate testing and interpretation, the Westmed physicians work with our patients to customize a plan that is right for you.
