Robert F. Onder, MD
“My brother had severe asthma as a child and young adult, and that inspired me to choose medicine because it was a field in which I could apply my interest in science in a way that could directly help people. I always enjoy caring for asthma and allergy patients because we make people feel better and improve their quality of life. I believe it is important to get to the root of the patient’s problem and to not only treat symptoms. To deliver quality, personalized healthcare, I’ve become a better, more careful listener. In training, there is a precise ‘right way’ to approach every patient. In my practice, I’ve embraced the philosophy that care must be individualized.”

Sonia Cajigal, MD
“Allergies are so prevalent and impact many people on a regular basis. As someone with allergic rhinitis, myself, I know how severely it can affect a person’s day to day living. I am lucky to have found a specialty where there is a lot we can offer patients and improve their quality of life. I enjoy treating patients of all ages and am interested in all aspects of allergy and immunology, including eczema, hives, asthma, food allergy and immunodeficiency.”

I wanted to feel better, but I didn’t want to give up my pets. A few weeks after Day 1 allergy relief, I can breathe again.Elizabeth R.
As a busy mother with young children, I didn’t have time for traditional allergy shots. But when I found out I could get better after just one half-day allergy therapy, I was sold. My stuffiness has gone away, and my eyes aren’t puffy. I recommend this to all my friends.Allison K.
I had a miserable spring last year, but this year, after Day 1 allergy relief therapy, I was able to go outside again to bicycle and run. This is great!John V.
I suffered from allergies for years, but I always thought allergy shots took too long to work. But now, one week after Day 1 allergy relief, I feel great. I should have done this years ago.Thomas M.
