Allergy Testing

TESTIMONIAL REVIEWS

  •   After going to two dermatologists to get the same misdiagnosis, I decided to see an allergist. So happy I did! Dr Gibbon is not only skilled and knowledgeable but actually cares too. He spent so much time with me and was determined to get to the bottom of what was causing my issue. And he did! I'm so much better and can't recommend him enough.

      It was easy to make an appointment for allergy testing. The ladies at the front desk were friendly and informative.
    I had to go off of all antihistamines (Benadryl, Claritin, Zyrtec) and eye drops for the test, which was scary at first because I have really bad allergies to all kinds of things but I got through it for the week prior to the test.

    Dr. Gibbon listened carefully to all my health issues and addressed each concern with an amazing amount of knowledge.

    I was sure about some allergens that trigger me but as far as food allergies I was all mixed up! I was avoiding food that I wasn't allergic to and eating things that I had no idea was affecting me. Needless to say I have a minor shellfish and fruit allergy which is common but now I know!!!

    Thank you Dr. Gibbon for helping me!

      Dr. Gibbon was patient, thorough, and genuinely interested in helping me find out what was wrong; in today's world of being rushed through doctor visits, I was really impressed by the care I received in his office.

  •   I love love Dr. Gibbon!

    I haven't had a doctor sit with me for this long and ask me this many questions (and be on time) since the day I was born. He is so kind, looks you in the eye, and truly cares about taking care of you. I am so happy I found him, one of the best physicians in Los Angeles!

      The office understands the disconnect between insurance and their office and is going to make some    changes with billing. The overall price I pay now per appointment for what I had done is $270. My insurance covered a very small portion. But the office is working with me to make payments. Maybe I don't have good insurance, who knows. Dr. Gibbon is a good doctor and I am happy for the allergy information he gave me.

      I took my four year old to Dr Gibbon's office for a skin test.  What I learned has changed our lives for the better.  Dr Gibbon tested for things other doctors had not thus revealing that our four year old is allergic to corn.  This is huge as we were feeding him corn in place of gluten.  His prior doctors had not tested for corn.  I think Dr Gibbon is innovative and up to date on environmental influences as they relate to our current day to day living.  His staff was polite and friendly and super tolerant of a wild four year old boy in a red cape.

  •   Okay, so turns out I didn't have any food allergies but the whole process from appointment set up to the time I walked out of the door, my experience was a breeze.  The staff was nice, the assistant that took my vitals was the sweetest and last but obviously not least, Dr. Gibbon was shockingly thorough and caring.  I've never had a doctor spend so much time with me and really care about my symptoms.

    He went out of his way to help me through my process and find the next doctor in the process.

    Seriously, I can not recommend this doctor any higher.

      Dr. Gibbon was referred  to me as the allergist doctor to see. It was easy to make an appointment, staff was friendly and flexible about finding a time that worked into my schedule. My appointment went well- Dr.Gibbon spent time asking me questions and got to the bottom of my reaction. He gave me a list of solutions to choose from. I highly recommend him.

      I've been going to Dr Gibbon for about 2 years.  He was able to help me diagnose the root of my sleep apnea and referred me to an ENT who preformed some surgical procedures to help alleviate my sleep apnea.  Dr Gibbons continues to treat my allergies with tolerance shots.  His staff is very polite and helpful.  I thank God for knowledgeable and helpful men like Dr Gary Gibbons
