Can anyone recommend (or better yet had a good experience with) an allergist in the Santo Domingo area that does food allergy testing, either through blood or skin prick testing ?

Trying to help out an amiga who is suffering from bad bad food type allergies.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Ken.

F.Y.I. I may end up using him but am looking for some others to price compare.

I have allready spoken to him and to alert board members when I had asked him the price for testing he said 3,000 pesos. When I said O.K. he said that first it would be neccesary to have a consultation which costs 2,000 pesos. So I said then thats 5,000 pesos por todo. Before answering in the expected affirmative he asked where I was calling from, and when I said that I was in New York but wanted to make an appointment for my amiga he then said no 2,000 pesos for the consultation, and 4,000 pesos for the testing for a total of 6,000 pesos. I got the old Dominican/hose the gringo shuffle.

I still may use him if I cannot find any other allergists, so thanks. I always try to avoid quote unquote professionals that don't have standard pricing as that is usually just a precussor to the shenanigans that lie ahead.
