I can finally breathe.
I have had allergies since I was 5 years old. I have had allergy shots from age 5 to 15 and it helped, but never REALLY helped with the Fall and Spring seasons when I got hammered (in bed) for 7-10 days when everything starting blooming and when the leaves fell.
I had deviated septum surgery to fix the narrow nasal passages in my nose October 2007 performed by Dr. Keith Jackson from the same practice Dr Chacko belongs to. I was very impressed with the results and the surgery went so well that I decided to attack my lifelong allergy problem after Dr. Jackson said Dr. Chacko could help.
In Oct 2007, Dr. Chacko administered RUSH allergy immunization therapy that drastically shortened the time needed to make Allergy shot immunization therapy effective.
In March 2008, after nearly 30 years of life, I enjoyed my first spring without being sick as a result of pollen and other allergins filling the air in Atlanta. I am so glad I took the plung
Fix those allergies!. I have bad sinus and allergy issues all of my life. I have had two sinus surgeries in the past. Sinuses were better but allergies got worse as I got older. It got to the point that I spent nearly four years straight with sinus infections and at least one or more antibiotic prescriptions for every six week period. I even received allergy shots from Atlanta Allergy and Asthma for over 2 1/2 years during that stretch. Those shots did not help me in the least bit. Dr. Jackson (with Northside ENT) recommended I see Dr. Chako. I started seeing Dr. Chacko 9/2008 and receiving shots. I got over my last sinus infection with the assistance of Dr. Jackson in 1/2009. I began receiving the once per month maintenance dosage shot either in 12/08 or 1/09. Dr. Chacko increased the dosage that I had been receiving at Atlanta Allergy and Asthma. I have been free of sinus infections and antibiotics since 1/09. This is the first time in nearly 5 years that I haven't been on antibiotics. The once per month sore arms is a small price to pay for the tremendous success that I have had with Dr. Chacko and Dr. Jackson! Thanks to them both for improving my quality of life! By the way, Cathy is my favorite for giving shots, but Dr. Chacko did a pretty good job yesterday giving me my shots. Way to go Dr. Chacko.
One year later after sinus surgery and two other consults with other Allergist, my son was still having problems with breathing, snoring and other asthma problems. After meeting with the amazing Dr. Chacko, I am glad to say that all of my son's allergy & asthma symptoms are now better. Thanks to Dr. Chacko and his medical staff.
Struggling with a teenage son who can sometime be non-compliant, Dr. Chacko has made an impression on him with his health as well as his school work
Very kid friendly. The staff at Northside ENT has been very helpful with dealing with my daughter's ear infections and allergies.. Definitely kid friendly. Would strongly recommend
great doctor. I had been having allery issues for many years and had seen a few doctors in the past, and had tried allergy shots in the past also. Dr. Chacko took his time with me and offered a faster way of building up allergy shots and not I've been feeling great for months. Would highly recommend
