I was recommended to Dr Sullivan by my dermotologist after running blood tests for my cronic hives ( that at that point I had for over a year) He ran another set of blood tests- still not coming up with any reason for my hives which cause at time severe inflamation of joint and extreme pain- he recommended we do a food allergie work up- which I was a little hesitant to do because I dont belive I have a food allergie as my hives seem to be constant no matter whether I avoid certain food etc. I asked if there was any other antihitimine I could try etc and he came up with having to do the allergie testing- to make a long story short- first off I was very specific that if I was going to encure any billing other then my co pay I would rather not do the testing as I cant afford any other bills- 2nd I was not told that the testing could possibley make me sick I would have not done it if I had- that being said- we did the test- like I thought no alleergie to food but later on that night my tongue swelled up- I spiked a fever of 101 etc and couldnt even keep down water. Upon calling the doctors office the following businees day I would leave a total # of 6 meessages before a women in his Marietta office called me back 5 days after the first message was left. I then requested to cancel my follow up appointment as I have no interest in return to a doctor that has no cocern when a patient has an allergic reaction to testing and comes extemley close to have to go to the hospital.

I love Dr. Sullivan. I have been seeing him for several years and loved him from the minute I met him. I had been using a different allergist but when he got nasty and critical of my other specialists I knew it was time to do better but didn't want another doctor from the same group I was using. I went to my ENT for help and he said Dr. Sullivan just joined the group. I saw him 3 days later and have been using him ever since except a brief time in 2002 when I thought he was off our insurance and ended up with a different doctor at the group I was using before. I went back when I found he was on my insurance and he fixed the problems that were going on and reassured me that everything was going to be ok. Every time I have been in trouble with allergies or asthma he has been there willing to help and make a difference. I recommend him to anyone who needs an allergist that is not part of a mega group.

Dr. Sullivan is without a doubt, the absolutely best doctor I have been to. I have had severe skin allergies and have visited no less than 7 other dermatologists and allergists in the last 2 years. I found Dr Sullivan on a recommendation from a rheumatologist that I was sent to as none of the other doctor's could find out what was going on. Dr. Sullivan's medical knowledge is second to none. He truly goes above and beyond in explaining in detail in layman's terms the issue, the causes, and the treatment options. He is also a terrific listener. It is apparent that Dr. Sullivan truly cares for me when I visit him and he is not simply trying to rush me out the door like many other doctor's have done. Dr. Sullivan is also a famous allergist/immunologist within the medical community; and has given many lectures and written many articles in renowned medical journals. We are lucky to have someone of this caliber in the city of Atlanta.

Dr. Sullivan identified a problem and solution that no other doctor had figured out despite months and months of testing and consultations. He was thorough, compassionate and accurate! And everyone in the office was helpful and friendly.

I highly recommend Dr. Timothy Sullivan as one of the most professional, qualified allergists with whom I've consulted. He not only examined all the reasons for my allergies but also gave me environmental advice that has changed my life!
