Our family has been going to Dr. Inglefield for asthma/allergy symptoms for 20 years. We've always felt he cared about his patients health-my oldest son had SEVERE asthma and needed a lot of different medications to keep it controlled. However, when our younger child needed to be seen last year due to an allergic reation which is being treated by shots- his daily life is not noticably affected by allergies- we have noticed that we can seldom leave the office now without an arsenal of prescriptions that have to be filled and maintained.
I understand that it's a science being a doctor who treats an ailment which can't be seen. But, if my child goes in for a stuffy nose, I see no reason why he needs nasal drops, eye drops, ear drops, 2 inhalers, an antihistamine, Singulair, and whatever else is on special? this week. So, my only complaint or concern is that I sometimes wonder if he's truly working for us or his drug reps.
