The resident was very thorough. The doctor was condescending. She prescribed medication that I told her I already had which did not work. She did not suggest any other medication. She was very dismissive and suggested I see a dermatologist not an allergist.
Dr. Fajt is top-notch, and I would recommend her to anyone with allergy issues.

I saw Dr Fajt in consultation and she called me several times to review results. She also consulted with another specialist provider regarding my case and coordinated care. She also did a literature search and consulted with pharmacy.
This was my visit to this office and with Dr. Fajt. She was very friendly and seemed knowledgeable.
While I was checking in, the MA staff was ready to take me to a room. Everyone was pleasant and kind, easy to have a conversation with.
Dr Fachet was only in room short time, she went over information that her team had previously provided. I appreciated her referrals to doctors that may be of help with specific problems. She was professional, knowledgable but relied on her team that saw me first & did not engage me in any questions or conversation.
Dr. Fajt is an excellent, caring doctor. Love her!!

Great Doctor and staff!
I love everything about this Dr and this office EXCEPT for occasionally experiencing some very long wait times. I sat in the exam room yesterday for 45 minutes until I finally saw my Dr nearly one full hour after my scheduled appointment time. It's not always that long of a wait, this time it was.

Dr. Coffey and Dr. Fajt were extremely kind and professional. They informed me of my skin condition and remedies and medicines that may assist in a healing process.
I had initially seen Dr. Petrov and was not happy with my visit or the medication he prescribed. I called the Lung Center and asked to see Dr. Fajht and explained my issue. She listened carefully answered my questions and helped to clarify my confusion about the different inhalers. She prescribed a new medication that I am much more satisfied with.
Dr Fajt has taken care of me since she diagnosed a problem I had as a result of surgery. She is outstanding in my view. She has been a trusted advisor to me in my illness over the course of multiple visits.
Dr. Fajt takes her time and always reviews my health thoroughly.

Dr. Fajt was so attentive, competent, and took her time to explain things to me. she also has great interpersonal skills and sense of humor. so gla she's my provider
great dr, well informed and on top of latest medical trends related to her field
Dr. Fajt takes your concerns seriously and is not discusses options with you while never talking down to the patient. She definitely knows the value of a good doctor-patient relationship.
My experiences with Dr. Fajt, the nurses, and all office staff have all been great!
the wait time was ridiculous. we we're taken back quickly. After approximately 20 min a fellow came into room n took information. then she left and we probably waited another 25 min at least until Dr came in....and board in waiting room said "on time". we had never had to wait like this and caused me to be late for work
I had a very good visit with Dr Fajt. Everyone was very profesional and very kind. Thank you.
excellent provider. she is so intelligent that I need few seconds to process and formate my questions after she provides information.
Dr. Merritt L Fajt was talking to me about my allergy shoot questions, she is a very good doctor.
