Allergy Patient Success Stories

Allergy Associates of La Crosse is not a “salon” clinic for the affluent. Since 1970, the waiting rooms have hosted allergy suffers from 50 states, nearly every continent and all walks of life. A western Congressman heard about the “drop doc” while he grilled burgers and eves-dropped on his neighbor on the other side of the fence. Word-of-mouth brought a former Miss America, a priest, and what sometimes seems like half the population of Clinton, Iowa. Word-of-mouth brought an unemployed father of seven from Minnesota’s Iron Range and many Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. Hear testimonials from some of our patients about how allergy drop treatment has helped them live a fuller life.
