Allergy Treatment reviews in Leesburg

    Allergy Asthma & Immunology Institute
    While my initial experience at the Allergy Asthma & Immunology Institue in Landsdowne/Leesburg VA with Dr. Laura Ispas was initially positive -- it quickly went downhill after that and turned out to be a very negative experience overall. For my initial appointment, they did extensive allergy testing on my back -- of which I had numerous severe reactions. The Doctor was polite and even called me that evening to ensure that I was okay. Before starting my injections, I was also told I had to come back for food allergy testing as well via a blood test -- even though I've never complained or had any history of food allergies. Once the extensive testing was completed over 2 visits, I started my initial injections about two-weeks thereafter -- and this is where it all started to go downhill. First off, the office only offers injections 3-days per week with no dedicated staff for the injections. On numerous occassions, it was so busy that I had to wait outside the office in the hallway with a toddler and other patients -- in some cases waiting upwards of 90minutes just to get called to the back. Of course, once the injection is complete, you had to wait another 30 minutes to ensure there was no reaction before they would release you. 2Hrs for an injection is a little extreme -- especially when I was slated to get 3 injections per week for numerous months. Moreoever, on 2 separate occassions, the Doctor wasn't in the office during the supposed "available" injection times -- and I was subsequently sent home as the staff couldn't even tell me when the Doctor would return. So with that being said, and being tired of waiting upwards of 6hrs per week for 3 scheduled injections -- I decided enough was enough. After waiting again one late afternoon, I decided to ask the staff how to get a copy of my paperwork (with the intention of switching to a new office). In doing so, Dr. Laura Ispas overheard me talking to the staff and loudly started to ask "why I was asking for my paperwork". Instead of asking me to come to the back and talk to her privately, she put my business out there in front of all the existing patients in the waiting room -- even getting argumentative at times because of my decision to leave the office. It was so bad, that I had to finally tell her to simply respect my decision -- at which point she walked away agitated. And then it went from bad to worse. I'll save all the details, but in short, they slow-rolled my paperwork to the new office (took over 30 days despite HIPPA laws requiring them to do so) -- and only eventually sent it after I mentioned getting my attorney involved and reporting them to the BBB. So when my records were finally sent over, it was a complete mess and required new testing anyway. And to add insult to inury, Dr. Laura Ispas's office refused to send over any of my remaining allergy injection vials. So needless to say, my initial positive experience with Dr. Laura Ispas's Allergy & Immunology Institue when from bad, to ugly, to just downright pitiful and unethical. If I could give them zero stars, I would. Try this office at your own risk, but don't say you weren't warned. It blows me away that this office has as many positive reviews as it does -- it really makes you wonder... Thanks - Karen

    Wasan, Dr. Anita N
    She is really good. I will be going to her next week. She does allergy testing and give shots. She goes the extra mile to make sure that the answer is found. If it is not then she makes a referral to whomever she thinks is right. She is very ethical. She makes sure that I get the care I need. She is very sort after. The office environment is very upbeat, nice people and very efficient. They make sure that the insurance is taken care. They make sure everything is in order. The punctuality is very good. The staff is over the top.

    Allergy & Asthma Care Centers
    They are a practice of doctors. They have offices all over the city. They have an unusual set up and as a businesswoman I was astounded when I got to know how they run their business. They are first group of physicians I have encountered who understand that medicine is a business and unless they make it easy for a patient to get in and out and give good care they are not going to have too many patients. One of the things they do to accommodate patients is that they have offices all over the metropolitan area. They are certain office open on certain days. All of them have a special day that they are open. My immune system has changed. I was allergic to everything that's outside. I went to bed one night and started sneezing so much that I used up an entire box of tissues. That's how allergic and how bad my symptoms are. They have pin pointed my problem areas and now they create a special serum for you and inject it and over time it will change your immune system. I do have some allergy problems still but it's a 95% improvement in my symptoms. The main thing is that they have offices everywhere. Each office is open one day a week and some offices two days. They open at 12:30 and close by 7:30 and the reason for that is that if some one wants to come and get an injection and wait until you leave to make sure you don't have any negative reactions, People come during the rush hour or just before they pick up their children or after work. The allergist care center have set up and designed their whole office structure with multiple offices and the odd times to specifically accommodate patients’ variety and needs. I have never seen any physician do this. They don't teach business in medical school but that is what doctors do and if they don't know how to do that to the patient's satisfaction then they are not going to make it and that is why I am so high on this particular group. They not only know about the business and have people that manage that and set up the structure and take care of that which most doctors don't really care about, what they really care about is interacting with the patient and solving the problem. But this group is the first group I have ever come across that has sat down and planned well so that people don't have to wait. They are amazing because they know how to really run a good business and I have had tangible, positive results and I can go at any time I want to go and I get to choose that and I can get it changed anytime. They are truly an anomaly. I have to say I know that these people must be rolling in a successful business because they are always focused on patient needs and they go so far as to actually walk the walk than actually talk the talk. I wouldn't use anyone else.

    My interaction has been very good. She is a very good listener, she is willing to work with other physicians, and she tries to look at where her patients are coming from and what their preferences are. She works with you rather than telling you how it is.

    Allergy & Asthma Care Centers
    I was suffering from allergies and I called Allergy Care Centers for information because I wanted to get shots. I had first made sure that they were a qualified provider with my health care plan. I asked them what the "ball park costs" were for treatment because I had a large deductible with my insurance company and therefore I would be paying out of pocket. I was told by the Allergy Care representative that the cost of allergy testing varies but between $1000 and $2200., the $2200. if all tests were done including food. I realized that I would probably be in the $1000-$1300., range given my ailments. I then asked what the cost would be if I was prescribed allergy shots. I was told about $30 per shot. I took this into consideration when making my appointment, and planning my financial situation. I have received two bills, the first was for the tests, and the cost was $994. I had no problem with this bill and consider it to be fair and as I was informed. I paid it immediately. The second bill was shocking. It was for $1635. I immediately called the Allergy Care Center because I thought it was a billing/computer error. It was for a three day range of dates, and I had only been back to the Allergy Center for a shot on one of the days in question, of which I thought I would be charged $30. The Care Center informed me that I would have to speak with a woman in the Vienna office, named Terry. When speaking with Terry, she explained to me that the charge was for the serum, and that they charge it all at one time. I informed Terry that I specifically called regarding the costs of my treatment and I was told that it was $30 per shot. Terry agreed and stated yes, but that is for the shot, this is for the serum. I was stunned, I told her that I thought the shot included everything in the shot. I told her that I believed this was wrong, I should have been told that the $30. was only for the actual needle and its administration and that the serum was another charge. I believe I did my best to find out my actual costs, and that I have been severely mislead. Terry said her office went out of its way to call my insurance company to find out if I was covered, and most offices don't do that. I agreed, but I told her I already knew my coverage prior to calling her office and that is why I chose her office because they were a provider to my plan. She then told me that it really wasn't an issue because my deductible would now be paid given these charges, and after this intitial treatment I would be covered. I told her that this was not my concern, that my issue was my actual current costs and I do not usually meet my high deductible or try to. I was concerned with my out of pocket for the services of her allergy practice. I did not make the appointment until I was comfortable with the upcoming costs. Terry then intimated that I was trying to get rid of my deductible, while trying to get out of paying my bill. I assured her that I had already called the insurance company in the 2 days I was waiting for her return phone call and explained the situation to my health care provider. I am not in any way trying to commit insurance fraud or get rid of my deductible and go to another allergy provider. Her response was that I had signed the papers agreeing to the treatment and paying for all services, and that she didn't think there was anything she could do in coming to an agreement about reducing the Allergy Care Center bill but would call me if there was, but again repeated I had agreed to the charges and she strongly doubted that they would change my bill even though I would no longer be going to her practice. I am astounded that I as a patient can make several phone calls to my insurance company and the Allergy Care Center and my health insurance company in order to ascertain what my charges and out of pocket costs would be, and to fail so greatly. I am a reasonably intelligent person who has a command of the English language and I thought I was being thorough. I feel very sorry for patients who are only as capable as me or less than capable because I believe the Allergy Care Center intentionally mislead me. How would an average person know that the cost of a shot would not include the cost of the serum? Why was I not told that the cost of the shot was around the $30. range but that the serum was additional and the price would vary given the contents of the serum. I would have then taken my questions a step further and realized that I was not a candidate for shots, but would stick with pills and sprays. I found the bookkeeper to be rude and condescending, and in my speaking to her and two other people at the office I was never accurately told how much serum was prepared, I was told 2 shots, 6 months, and three months worth of serum was prepared. The bookkeeper never called me back to work out an agreement but has sent bills. I am filing this case with the Attorney General's Office in Baltimore. I hope that in the future, the Allergy Care Centers will be more forthcoming with other prospective patients.

    She really listens to her patients, looks at the overall picture and does not only focus on her area. She looks at the patients overall problems. I think she is also good at working with other physicians.

    Dr. Wasan is an outstanding physician. Her ability to connect with the children is wonderful and she truly cares about their well being. She also never rushes an appointment and answers any questions in detail. The most reassuring aspect of Dr. Wasan is she will make herself available to the parent's in an emergency. She always calls back to provide recommendations when the kids are sick and it's after hours. She is compassionate and very well versed in the various treatment options and medications. There are no words that can express our delight and strongest recommendation of Dr. Wasan to any parent that has a child with a respiratory disease. She is simply a stellar physician and person.

    They were able to successfully treat my husband and my son s severe seasonal allergy. The staff is just okay, but my husband did have an allergic reaction while in their office, and they handled that really wonderfully and gave him epinephrine that he needed, and kept my husband around for me.
