  • Michelle S.

    I absolutely loved Julie Daugherty! She spent much time with me listening and asking questions! I feel she was very Thorough! She also was very nice and Pleasant to talk to. I feel very blessed to have found her!

  • sherry j.

    I wish that I had been referred to Julie Daugherty at Allergy Associates in the beginning of my 1 1/2 years of searching for the answers to my medical issues and the right medical practitioner to resolve them. She immediately took such a genuine interest in my issues and gave me so much of her time. With the inquisitive mind of a true scientist I know that I’ve finally found the right person and place.

  • Phil S.

    Dr. Patel is very professional, patient, kindly…and is unusually knowledgeable. She explains everything thoroughly, and is quick to assess what her patient is most worried about. I would recommend her enthusiastically.

  • Crystal D.

    I had my first visit today and I was there for 2 + hours. Not waiting. They brought me back right away but this was my initial visit with testing. They spent 2 hours with me testing me for my allergies testing my lung function an ld going over all the results and the treatment plan with me. The doctor spent a lot of time going over everything, explaining the tx options, etc. It was a nice change of pace to have a doctor not only listen, but take the time to truly test you and then take the time to explain it all that same visit and explain and not just give you treatment options.

  • Rita O.

    From the moment I walked into office I was greeted with courtesy and a smile. The office was clean and waiting area comfortable. The staff that brought me back and tested me were competent, engaging and very pleasant. They took the time to explain what they were going to do and how it may effect me to prepare me for the experience. Both girls were friendly and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Rucker was easy to engage with and explained the plan of care effectively. I really enjoyed my experience and would highly recommend this practice.

  • jan s.

    Efficient and caring staff (receptionist and nurse) were friendly, yet professional. Dr. Patel was very knowledgeable and willing to listen to my concerns and give her professional opinion and advice. Very good experience.

  • Melissa M.

    So far the office has been great. They are very accommodating and super friendly.

  • Sally B.

    This is a very clean office in a nice location in Hagerstown, Maryland. I want to thank Elizabeth Amy, and the doctor for making my family feel valued. The staff was kind, professional and quite courteous. I definitely will recommend this office for everyone who has allergies or needs testing. May God Bless Allergy & Asthma Center!!!

  • Linda P.

    I can’t rave enough about how friendly the staff was. Dr. Julie Daugherty was personal and made me feel comfortable. You don’t get top notch treatment these days. I would highly recommend her and give 5 stars!!

  • Debi S.

    This group deserves 10 stars!
    A 3 month long complex medical situation led me to several physicians. Wanting a second opinion I found the Allergy Associates on line. Absolutely each staff member from Carol who scheduled me, Receptionist Cara, Nurse Karrie and Julie Daughtery PhD, NP-C treated me professionally with kindness and respect. They listened to me and were genuinely interested in helping me. I can’t say enough positives about Julie. She was amazing. She took time to listen to me, to brainstorm my situation m, review the medical information I brought, discuss every aspect and concern I had. She research and provided me with a follow up home phone call.
    The Allergy Associates are 10 star!
    You will be in the very best hands here!

  • Penny S.

    I was having a bad allergic reaction to something, and after my GP’s office blew it completely (not even recognizing my symptoms as an allergic reaction), they were able to get me in the next day. Julie diagnosed my problem very quickly. She was very knowledgeable about my specific needs and got me feeling more comfortable right away. She also spent time on the phone with me & we got the allergen identified. Great office & nursing staff, too!

  • Shay M.

    The center is a lovely alternative to the Frederick k location I was visiting. Always very clean. Always a polite and courteous (and dare I say “Fun”) staff that greet you. Love this office location!

  • Melisa K.
