Dr. Masood is the most caring, supportive, thorough, and skilled allergist. She has helped me tremendously when other allergists didn’t want to bother with my complex case.

Dr. Masood was probably my favorite doctor I've ever encountered in my life. She exudes enthusiasm for her work and that enthusiasm was contagious. I have actually described my appointment to friends and family as "fun" (and I'm typically severly anxious about any type of medical experience). The nurse was wonderful, too, and instantly made me feel comfortable. The entire testing and diagnosis process was fascinating.

Dr. Masood welcomed me to the practice (I am a new patient) and made me feel so comfortable. I've never had a doctor actually verbally welcome me before and it was really nice. She took time to listen to me and think out a plan with me which I really appreciated. She made sure I understood the next steps as well and explained things clearly. I could tell she not only cared about my specific concern, but also about my general health overall. I will for sure be recommending her to anyone who needs an allergist!

This was my second visit with Dr. Masood with a second of my 3 children. He's almost 2 and very rambunctious but she still took her time to listen to what was going on and taken the time before his appointment to go through his records and make notes on his history that were pertinent. Such a time saver with a toddler.

Dr. Masood was very attentive to me during the entire visit. The visit itself took about 2 hours, with Dr. Masood being involved for most of the time. Although I was pretty positive I had allergies and came in for an allergy test, she took a holistic approach by getting an overall medical history. She went to great depths to figure out if it could be any other possible healthcare issue. I did end up finding out the specific allergens I had a "sensitivity" to, but more importantly I knew that my lack of smell was not due to a different underlying disease. I felt respected during the visit and appreciated her thorough questions. I would definitely recommend her!

Dr. Masood is a rare doctor. Her bedside manner is so comforting and personable yet always professional. She is extremely thorough in diagnosing the problem and does not worry about how much time she is spending with you. If it takes longer to get the job done, she spends the time. She also went over my records the night before to get caught up on our last visit. I have recommended her to several family members and friends who have also become her patients. We all agree that she is an incredible doctor. We all agree that we are very fortunate to have her in our lives. ❤️

I left my visit still scared of taking medicine especially when I had to let the doctor know that both Tylenol and DayQuil has acetaminophen she had no idea they both did and then I asked her if she won’t test me to make sure it’s only that I was allergic to and she said no , only test she did was for plants and animals allergies . My whole reason for this visit was to see what ingredients in the medicine I took kept making me have Anaphylactic shock that’s why Lake forest hospital send me to this doctor so she can run text on me but I left the visit not really getting no answers.
