I have a long history of allergies, including several anaphylactic shocks. Dr El-Rafei recommended that I go for allergy vaccine shots for my severe dust allergy. After the first round of shots, I was able to breathe at 99% (which is something I have not experienced for 3 years despite being much disciplined with medications). Now I am in the final round. I am allergic to pets, but I am able to keep a cat. In addition, I have not had any bad allergy symptoms for a long time now.
I’ve been a patient of Dr Ahmed El-Rafei for more than three years. I have a chronic allergy that started over 10 years ago and got worse when I moved to UAE, so I went to Dr El-Rafei. After detailed blood, skin and lung tests, he prescribed me pills and recommended Immunotherapy. The initial 24 shots of Immunotherapy showed excellent results, and the second round of shots brought my allergy symptoms down to a minimum. My sinuses are clear, I sleep better during the night and I feel better during the day.
My son and my husband went for the vaccination course for their allergies and both benefited tremendously. The programme that Dr El-Rafei recommended and instituted reduced and eliminated their different symptoms.I found Dr El-Rafei quite different from other doctors in terms of the time he spends with patients, explaining the process and the programme, especially to my 10-year-old child.
I have been getting allergy vaccination shots with Dr Ahmed El-Rafei since February 2016. I really feel better now, and my allergy symptoms, which included excessive mucus generation, coughing and sneezing, have decreased significantly. I would recommend the allergy Immunotherapy with Dr El-Rafei to people with any kind of allergy.
