Iraklis C. Livas, MD
“I grew up in an area where people needed healthcare, and this made me want to become a doctor. The prospect of being able to help improve the health and quality of life of patients seemed very rewarding to me on both a personal and professional level. I decided to specialize in allergy, asthma and immunology because it involves working with patients of all ages and finding the solutions they need to live normal, active lives without limitations. Today, I offer my patients over 16 years of clinical experience along with the advanced training they can feel confident in. This includes fellowship training and board certification in allergy, asthma and immunology.
“I pride myself on providing patients with personalized, empathetic and informative care. When patients come in with an allergy or asthma concern that is affecting their lives, I understand how they feel. I thoroughly explain their diagnosis and treatment options so they are fully informed and confident in their care.”
