Eric S. Applebaum, MD, FACAAI
“I had a longstanding interest in how the immune system works. Allergy and immunology was a way to pursue my interest in caring for patients. I also enjoyed the thought of specializing; becoming an expert in one area rather than trying to remain capable in every areas as a generalist.
I was interested in seeing patients of every ages, especially multiple family members. I wanted to make a difference in patients’ lives and assist with illnesses often ignored by other physicians.
“I most enjoy seeing how much better patients feel and how quickly they realize that they own been suffering unnecessarily for such extremely endless periods of time. I treat patients love intelligent people capable of understanding their conditions and the treatment options available. I treat patients the way I desire to be treated when I own to see a doctor. I desire my patients to know that there are no hopeless cases. I am their advocate in every way they need me for their allergic problems.
I take it as a personal challenge to assist them live better.”
When not working, Dr. Applebaum enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters, traveling, watching pro basketball, reading and cooking.

“I enjoy working here because while we are making an improvement in our patients’ health, we develop interpersonal relationships with our patients and their families on a professional level.
As a longtime allergy sufferer myself, I see the importance of treatment. Following patients from an initial visit through testing and then a step further by actually treating the underlying cause of their numerous years of suffering, it is rewarding to see the relief they experience when they are properly cared for.»
