“Dr. Ispas is an amazing doctor who has brought joy back into my little girls life. My now 5 year old daughter had suffered from chronic sinusitis and after several rounds of antibiotics’ prescribed by her pediatrician with no relief we decided to see an allergist. Thankfully, we were sent to Dr. Ispas, she is a true blessing to our family and she has a heart of gold. My daughter LOVES her and enjoys going to see her and spending time in the office. Which leads me to the staff who reflect the same qualities as Dr. Ispas. All are so kind hearted, caring, friendly and a joy to see every time we step into the office.
