Dr. Sharkey is the best Allergy specialist I have ever been seen by! He is so kind and attentive. He takes his time with all patients and makes sure to cover all the basis with you regarding your care. He is the first doctor to diagnose me with asthma and after starting treatment I have definitely felt a difference in my breathing. I have a much better quality of life thanks to him. He is definitely worth the wait to see!
