How has seeing an allergist (visiting Hudson Allergy) helped you be more productive in your profession?
As a chronic asthmatic since childhood, managing my asthma and allergies has been a struggle. Since I began meeting with Dr. Kuriakose at Hudson Allergy, we identified all of my allergies, which are many. Then I was provided with necessary information to make adjustments at home and prescribed medicine based on my current symptoms. In addition, I also began the allergy shots on a regular basis which has been a tremendous help in managing my asthma and allergies. My allergic/hay fever and asthma flare ups have been reduced significantly.

What advice do you want to give to anyone reading this?
I would recommend anyone who is struggling with managing their asthma and allergies to contact Hudson Allergy. Allergy shots are worth the investment in your overall health and well-being if traditional medications are not working.

What is your favorite thing about NYC?
Diversity. I love that we have a bit of everyone here!
