“We had such a positive experience with Dr. Brough. The allergy testing was thorough and done in a very nice manner so that my 6 year old didn't mind the tests. Dr Brough went above and beyond the allergy testing in also discussing other issues with me, as my daughter has had stomach issues and also some tics. We've been to several doctors, both pediatricians and GPs, and Dr Brough was by far the most helpful doctor that we've seen. I highly recommend her!“
