Philadelphia Allergy Doctors

The 2009 Top Doctors who can get you through spring sniffle-free

YOUR PROBLEM: YOU’VE GOT ALLERGIES … AND HEART PROBLEMS

THE ALLERGIST: Gerald Kolski, MD, Crozer-Chester Medical Center, specializing in asthma, rhinitis, latex allergy and food allergy

HIS GAME PLAN: Treat your symptoms while keeping an eye on the larger picture. Antihistamines and decongestants are notoriously bad for disrupting the body’s normal balance, says Dr. Kolski. And decongestants reduce allergy-related swelling by narrowing blood vessels, which can lead to a jump in blood pressure.

HIS BACKGROUND: Dr. Kolski received his Ph.D. from Purdue University and his medical degree from Cornell University’s Weill Cornell Medical College. In addition to his practice, he was formerly the chairman of pediatrics at Crozer-Chester Medical Center, where he is still a faculty member.

WAITING ROOM STATS: For new patients or non-immediate allergy testing, it may take up to two weeks to get an appointment. Patients already with Dr. Kolski, however, can expect same-day care in more urgent situations.

MAKE AN APPOINTMENT: Crozer-Chester Medical Center, 30 Medical Center Boulevard Suite 205, Upland, 610-619-7410

THE DOCTOR TO SEE IF:

YOUR KID IS A SNIFFLING, SNEEZING MESS
