The number one priority of the Division of Allergy at Tufts Medical Center is a focus on individualized patient care that leads to a better quality of life. The majority of allergy and asthma cases do not conform to textbook descriptions, so we work closely with our patients to tailor treatment to their symptoms and needs.
Using state-of-the-art, evidence-based medicine in combination with the above philosophy, we empower our patients so that they can take charge of their conditions and their lives. By including our patients in the diagnosis and treatment process, we ensure that patients will leave with a better understanding of their own health, as well as a better understanding of how to deal with their medical issues.
Our team includes a bilingual physician, Dr. Weihong Zheng, who speaks English and Mandarin Chinese. Tufts Medical Center also provides interpretation services, at no cost to the patient, in more than 70 languages. For other language assistance or for more information, please call 617-636-5547.
