Dr shahid has introduced several innovative treatment and diagnostic procedures in Pakistan which are being practiced in USA and these work like wonder and provide immediate improvement in patients who were suffering for several years. When I am doing the allergy tests, they can feel that this particular food or aeroallergen is the cause of their sufferings. Since during tests they will start having the symptoms e.g. if some patient has rashes or itching for several years and medicines gave them temporary improvement only. Their disease worsened with time and even after years of treatment they did not know what cause of their symptoms is. While with our tests, patients either will have wheal at site of test or will develop minor symptoms of allergy and get rid of their disease in very short period.
