    Dr. Shum is really caring and listens to concerns very well. She has great options and explanations for care. I've been here twice now and have learned a lot about my allergies and possible treatments. But I am already seeing quite an improvement in allergy mitigation from my first visit.

    For the first visit with Dr. Shum, I felt she did a really good job, even though I had botched the allergy test on accident by taking an antihistamine the night before. I was supposed to abstain from antihistamines for 5 days prior to the visit so they could get a good allergy test result. She still offered to let me do the test, but after talking to her we agreed to try next week. She was able to prescribe 4 medications and a device to help absorb one of the medications better. So it wasn't a waste of time in my opinion. I really did appreciate that at least, as I have had wasted visits with other providers before and it doesn't sit well with me. She was great at listening and very caring and concerned. I will definitely be going back and would recommend scheduling a visit with her if your allergies are bothering you.
