We have seen Dr. Ricaurte for several years. I have two boys with allergies and asthma, and there have been several times they have been quite ill with one or the other. Her office was able to work in appointments when needed, she prescribed what was needed and followed up to see how they were doing. She took whatever time was needed during the appointment to ensure the patient was fully evaluated.
My Allergies and Asthma have been out of control for years. I may be allergic to everything at on point.... till I began an introductory treatment recommended by Kim. They are similar to allergy shots but they are drops you take at home instead of coming in all the time & now Relief! I have to say... No other doctor pays more attention and cares for their patients like Dr, Ricaurte. when my allergies are out of control I typically used to get sick instantly. she would call 1-2 times to make sure I was feeling better! not even my primary doctor does that.... So to those who claim she" didn't pay enough attention" ...... you must be one of those extremely high high maintenance moms with expectations that are unattainable. she is truly the best, I tied to use some one new when I moved. but the treatment and care was not the same. I still make the hour drive to her office #worthit
We went to Dr Ricaurte for routine food allergy tests. These went fine and I mentioned that my daughter was also having a strong cough fairly often. Dr began treating her for asthma and the medications weren't helping much. I felt that she had a hard time remembering details for my daughters situation and treatment she'd had my daughter on. I felt like she didn't listen very well and was hard to communicate with. Wouldn't recommend her to anyone.
