Dr. Engler has his office employees do all the work, he doesn't even explain results and the employees just handed me computer print outs that were not helpful. The tests took three days and at the last day he was to talk to me about the test results, but all he did was peck on a computer to close my file and he walked out never explaining anything. His employees were not helpful either. When I told Ray, a clerk, that Dr. Engler had not given me a report on my allergy tests, Ray just shrugged. He said go to the desk and make another appt but I waited 15 minutes and no one showed up at the desk. The employees are not efficient and don't seem to know what they are doing.
I would recommend Dr David Engler to anyone who has allergies and asthma, he is a very knowledgeable doctor who care about his patients. His staff is awesome, especially Lexy, I love the fact that they can make patients laugh. Very light office enviornment, and with people that have chronic diseases positive attitudes and smiles do make a huge difference. I go to the fannin location, love them.
I have seen 4 board-certified allergists in the Houston area for hives. Not hives that disappear with Claritin or Allegra, but ones that require steroids or cortisone to control. I had been on such strong antihistamins that I was always tired, and put on 35 pounds from prednisone. Dr. Engler spent like an hour with me, went through all the previous doctor lab tests and said it was probably time to try the alternate meds that you only get from a med school or academic doctor. He fought with my insurance company to get it approved, and the hives were gone by the next month. His staff is very nice--you can tell they love their job and their boss.
