I did not feel safe at all in their care. I definitely had doubts about their qualifications.
I was horrified at my second appointment to arrive to find that this allergist had brought two dogs to work with her. They were allowed to run around the facility. As someone who has severe pet dander allergies (too much exposure can restrict my ability to breathe and breathing is very important to living), this posed a serious health threat to me. When I expressed my concern and alarm at the situation, neither the doctor or the staff apologized or indicated that they found anything wrong with the situation. Amusingly enough, there were signs posted all over the waiting room and clinical areas warning of the dangers of wearing perfume to an allergists office b/c of patient reactions. um. But you can bring your dogs to work because it's inconvenient to find an alternate solution?! Any credible allergist never would have allowed such a contaminant into what should be a safe space.
I feel I have to clarify, that I have nothing against pet owners, dogs, cats, etc. BUT, knowingly putting your patients in danger is beyond irresponsible.
I had numerous terrible experiences with Dr Magera and would advise anyone looking for an asthma and allergist to look elsewhere. My first bad experience was when they booked me an appointment at the wrong location, when I showed up the doctor was not even in office. It was the staff's fault. Since then I have numerous rude experiences where the practice is only concerned about making money and not helping patients. I was lied to on numerous occasions about actions taken on their part and yelled at, spoken down to and disrespected. I can't believe I tried to come back (close to my home, wanted it to work out) save yourself the trouble and find a doctor who will actually care about and want to help you be healthy and happy. It is not this practice. Be warned... This is a disrespectful office only concerened with profit. Not people.
