Dr. Kwak has been a lifesaver. We though I had hives, but after several months of struggling, we determined it was a form of vascuslitis. When I was at my worst and in tears because the latest medication wasn't working, I called. I had a new medication in a few hours, as soon as she determined the right dosing, and she wasn't even in the office that day! She is a wonderful doctor who really cares about her patients. Other doctors need to learn from her. Also, Dr. Zedalis in the same office is great as well- he helped on a procedure when I wasn't even his patient and they fit me in at the last minute on a Friday afternoon!
I have excercise induced ashtma, and was beginning to become a problem. I play a college sport and my ashtma was beginning to affect my play. My mom found Dr. Kwaks office in the Yellow Pages and gave them a call. She has found a treatment to control my ashtma. She is wonderful and a very caring doctor. I highly recommend.
I'm 25 years old. That is something that pretty much no one ever thought would happen. I have severe presistant asthma since I was born. I've been on a ventilator twice before the age of three, I've coded because of my asthma. I've even had seizures due to low oxygen levels in the brain secondary to asthma. Up until about 2 years ago I was having upwards of 10 asthma attacks on daily basis. I was miserable to say the least. I had to plan my trips on where I could stop to take a nebulizer treatment. I now have a FANTASTIC asthma and allergist today and without her I wouldn't be where I am now! I currently haven't had an asthma attack in over 1 year and I haven't used my nebulizer in almost a year. I haven't had to use any oral or injected steriods in almost 2 years. Dr. Kwak couldn't have came at a better time for me. I was at the end of my rope. At a time in my life that I should have been enjoying this, I was scared that I wouldn't make it to see the next day. Dr. Kwak listened to me and let me participate in my treatment plan. Her staff (especially Sandy the shot nurse) are extremely curtious and helpful. Dr. Kwak truely is an angel in disguise although she may say that she is just doing her job. She always goes above and beyond. I can without a doubt say that I wouldn't be here today without her.
