“I’ve never met Dr. Dinger, but the Nurse Practitioner Marlena and the Physician Assistant Chelsea are amazing! They are great providers. I recommend them to anyone suffering from allergies and/or asthma. They’re thorough and have wonderful bedside manners. You also don’t wait for hours on end just to see the provider. The staff is amazing as well!!” – Amaree Romo

Our family is thankful for all this office has to offer and we look forward to working with them (one of the few offices in town) to desensitize my son and daughter to their nut allergies.

“Easy to get an appointment, and very friendly. I needed to get my asthma and allergy medications adjusted. They took the time to make me comfortable, and I never felt rushed when asking the doctor questions. They treat you like family there.” – Veronica Leckie
“I found Dr. Vaughn a few years ago when I was having food allergies. He performed a LEAP/MRT test because all other traditional tests did not reveal any usable information. They were able to determine what exactly caused my allergies and as long as I avoid those foods/ingredients, I was able to avoid my allergies and the issue was solved. In addition the office personnel are very nice and professional always. Thanks!” – Vic S.
