Personal Statement

Dr. Reisacher is an Otolaryngic Allergist who sees people with a wide range of general ear, nose, throat and allergy problems. His clinical expertise lies in the diagnosis and management of airborne and food allergies in adults and children. He uses the latest desensitization techniques, including sublingual immunotherapy (drops placed under the tongue at home) and oral mucosal immunotherapy (using a specially designed toothpaste) along with minimally-invasive skin-testing methods. As a board-certified Otolaryngologist, he is able to offer his patients the most effective balance of surgical and medical treatments for sinus and nasal problems to help them regain their quality of life and return as quickly as possible to the activities they enjoy. He treats patients of all ages and believes that taking time to listen to his patients and helping them understand all of their treatment options are necessary steps towards developing a trusting and effective doctor-patient relationship.
