  • I am a practicing board-certified allergist located in Tampa Bay, Florida. I am also the founder and CEO of Potens Allergy LLC. I have spent a decade researching the clinical effectiveness of sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) as an alternative to allergy shots. I discovered and patented a novel approach to immunotherapy called Circava System therapy.

    My specialty interests include:

    Mite and Roach Hypersensitivity
    Alternative routes of immunotherapy administration
    Circadian cycle of the immune system
    Immunotherapy, allergic disease, and asthma of the underserved populations
