This is the best doctor and allergy office I have been to. The office has saturday appointments, which is awesome. Dr. Ponda is a nice, soft spoken man who knows his stuff. I went to him as a specialist in food allergies, but he is good at treating regular allergies as well. He does not push you into any kind of treatments, just presents them to you and makes sure you understand everything.

Dr. Ponda is very compassionate and spends a lot of time listening to your concerns. He is good at explaining his treatment decisions, and makes things understandable. He also got my allergies and asthma completely under control without over-medicating me. He is young, but professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him.
