What Our Patients Are Saying
“I have personally been a patient of Allergy & Asthma Specialists for approximately 10 years, where I have received treatment and immunotherapy for my allergies. When my older son started to develop signs of allergies, I immediately brought him to your office for testing and treatment, thankfully his allergies are minor and easily managed. My younger son, however, is a different story. He developed RSV at the age of 5 weeks and has suffered many severe asthma attacks. He spent many nights down at Children’s Hospital until he was 7 years old. While there he received excellent care, especially from one of their Fellows, Dr. Fogg. Under the advisement of Dr. Fogg and the allergy department at Children’s Hospital, Nicholas began Xolair treatments. These treatments proved to be extremely beneficial but it was very time consuming traveling down to Children’s Hospital for his monthly injections. That is when we decided to move Nicholas’ care to Allergy & Asthma Specialists. The practice has proven to be staffed by excellent physicians and nurses and we knew they would take excellent care of Nicholas, just as they have taken excellent care of the rest of my family. Nicholas has been a patient for four years now, no longer needing Xolair treatments, just immunotherapy. He is greeted every month by warm and friendly faces, Paula, Cathy, Ruth and Maureen always make him feel comfortable and welcome. I am happy to say that Nicholas is a healthy 12 year old whose asthma is well-controlled. We are so grateful for having this wonderful practice to care for our family.” -J.M., March 17, 2011
Thank you for the opportunity to write a comment about our care at Allergy and Asthma Specialists. Our whole family has been treated over the past 15 years at the Pottstown office. We are always welcomed by a friendly front desk staff and nurse. They are never too busy to answer a question, change an appointment or refill a prescription. The Doctors are thorough, unrushed and caring. They always made my children feel at ease. Because of the care my children received over the years, they are now knowledgeable about their asthma and allergies and confident in knowing what to do if they are symptomatic. Thank you for the excellent care! - A.R., March 7, 2011
Allergy & Asthma Specialists care about your needs and life style and develop an asthma/allergy management plan specifically for you. This plan is reviewed to ensure the best control of your allergies with the fewest medications possible. If additional experience is required to manage your case, they will consult with the experts to ensure that your allergy needs are met. There is always a cheerful voice on the phone to speak with you as needed. As a patient, you are important to them and they are important to you. -G.M., March 1, 2011
Three of our four family members go to the practice. It is conveniently located in center city, and we have never had to wait. The nurses and doctors are very patient, particularly during the visits when we do challenges. The doctors are extremely knowledgeable and attentive -- they email and call to follow up on test results and explain them in layman terms! Thanks so much.

Two years ago our son, a patient of the practice, was very sick with a chronic cough. The staff at Allergy & Asthma Specialists went out of their way to find an office we could take him to at odd hours. Dr. Forman (not his usual allergist) was thorough and understanding. When he figured out what was wrong, he made sure we had everything we needed for treatment including lots of samples. When we went for follow up with Dr. Fogg (his regular allergist), everything was already in the computer and he knew exactly what happened.
As a patient of Allergy & Asthma Specialists for 13 plus years in the Blue Bell office, I find that, if I am ill, I can always get in that day or the next. Dr. Forman, my main MD “listens” and works together with me. Stanley Forman, MD is terrific. I have not had my “allergic asthma” in years. Also, they are always on top of retesting to see if my allergies have changed and adjusting if necessary. They have all helped me a great deal.

Dr. Eva Jakabovics has taken care of my son for the past 10 years or so. She was intuitive and had a very good idea of what was wrong with him when diagnosing him many years ago with an immune deficiency. This was after going to other physicians who were clueless. Her expertise changed his life to where his condition is managed and he lives life to its fullest!! Since his diagnosis she has treated him with great compassion and superb care. I am eternally grateful for her expertise in dealing with his illnesses and the respect she gives to him – which isn’t always easy as he is a teenager!! Dr. Eva is always accessible to me for any questions I have. I appreciate that I have options to see her at different offices when I feel it necessary to have her evaluate my son. She has a wonderful bedside manner which is very much appreciated. I feel very lucky to have her as a physician for him!!! Dr Eva is a wonderful, compassionate, expert in the field of allergy and immunology!!!

Three of my 4 children are Allergy & Asthma Specialists patients and have been seen in multiple offices. I have been very satisfied with all medical care/services they have received for the last 12 years (asthma and allergy management including 10 years of injections for my daughter and 5 years of sublingual (SLIT) for one son). In addition, I have been very satisfied with the efficiency of the office staff with regards to returning calls, scheduling and ease of obtaining prescriptions in a timely and courteous manner.

As a patient of Dr. Shashank Sheth, I would like to say that I would recommend him, and have, to anyone interested. I had been suffering from hives for quite a while and ended up visiting him at the Doylestown office. He was understanding and received my concerns with politeness and obvious interest in helping me to not only get rid of the hives, but to find the underlining causes of same. After testing, and experimenting with different medicine combinations, I have been clear of hives for almost two months. He is an asset to your medical group and is one of very few doctors that I don’t mind visiting.

Our family has been patients of Allergy & Asthma Specialists for approximately fourteen years. Throughout this period, we found the entire staff, especially Dr. Stanley Forman, to be both professional and compassionate. Their expertise and the superb care we receive at Allergy & Asthma Specialists allows us to lead healthy, active lives in spite of our allergies and chronic sinus infections. We are thankful to be their patients and to be their friends!"

I am writing to share all of the great experiences we have had with Allergy & Asthma Specialists! My entire family is seen in Blue Bell (my husband, two sons ages 12 and 7 and myself). I have never met a more kind and caring staff as the one they have at this office. The nurses and receptionists know us by site - we are there a lot between our regular visits and allergy shots. They even joke with us sometimes that we should set up a cot and just stay over. My two boys and I all receive allergy injections, so between the 3 of us we are there weekly and sometimes twice in one week.
My boys love Dr. Bob Anolik and actually look forward to their visits because he is so silly with them. He also helps to keep me calm when there are medical issues going on and always has the time to spend with us - we never feel rushed out of the office. I could probably go on and on but this covers most of it. Please feel free to contact me if there are any specific questions I can answer. Thank you for letting me express my gratitude to this wonderful staff!

Dr. Fogg and the Collegeville staff are terrific! They always work with us to get prescriptions we need and appointments scheduled. My son has not had a cold or upper respiratory infection in two years!

The service I have received the last several years at the Pottstown office is the best I have ever received. I have had to get shots my whole life, and the girls and doctors in the office always make it an enjoyable visit when I come in. My allergies are under control finally after 30 years of being treated for them, I just had to find the right place and I did when I found your office roughly 7 years ago. The girls are always flexible with the times of my appointments as things come up at work and being self employed my schedule changes daily sometimes. Thanks for the great service and personable staff.
