Dr. Preston is an excellent doctor. He explained the allergy testing process extremely well and was very attentive when listening to what I had to say. He would stop typing on the computer, turn his body towards me, and make eye contact. I felt heard. He had amazing bedside manner. He was polite, respectful, and caring. Couldn't ask for better qualities in a doctor.

Reviewed on Dec 8, 2023

I have several chronic illnesses and some of them are on the rarer side, so I'm used to doctors being very dismissive or seeming uninterested in what I have to say about my care. Dr. Preston is one of the few that I know I can trust to fully consider what I know about my own body and experiences. Even as a newer patient, I do not doubt that he genuinely cares about not just treating my symptoms, but understanding their causes and addressing those too.

Dr. Preston was wonderful! He was patient, answered all of my questions, and had a few plans in place for treatment. He got tests, prescribed medications to help remedy my situation, and he was honest. I was educated when I left, and I've never been properly educated about my allergies before. Highly recommended!

Reviewed on Nov 27, 2023

Dr Preston came across as quite arrogant, and did not answer my questions in a way that is easy to understand for someone who is not familiar with the ins and outs of allergies. Pushed allergy medication on me even though all my tests came back NEGATIVE.

Dr. Preston is the first doctor out of the dozen I have seen for this problem that has actually shown an interest in helping me combat the issue rather than just throwing random, expensive medications to "try it out."

I appreciate his expertise but also his ability to listen, relate to me as an allergy sufferer, as well as his sense of humor.
