“I became a doctor to help people. Clinically, I am able to help a few people every day.
However, I knew that through medical research I would be able to help hundreds of people every day.
This is why I created AllerMED. I cannot think of a better way to help people than by developing a device
that will not only relieve the anxiety of millions, but also save lives.”
