"I was referred to South Bay Allergy and Asthma Associates by a friend who recommended that I take my child there for his asthma. We've seen both Dr. Schoettler and Dr. Marks and both of them were extremely knowledgeable, professional, and caring. They really take their time to explain everything and make sure their patients are informed and comfortable. The staff is always very accommodating and friendly. Overall, I've had nothing but positive experiences with this place and recommend it highly!"

"This medical group has been "the best" that I've been to. They get to the heart of the problem and get the results right away. Dr. Buchsbaum is the best, he really "listened" to me -"all" medical staff "above and beyond" all other places I've been to.

"I've been here several times now and couldn't ask for more! The doctors are both nice, patient, and really seem like they care about you. The office staff is excellent. The phone and office visit wait times are very short. I have had asthma and allergies my whole life and I've seen many asthma specialists. They have helped me a great deal here! I would highly recommend!"

"I have been coming to South Bay Allergy and Asthma for about two or three years now. I don't remember exactly how I came across this place, but I think I was referred here by my primary doctor. Their office is located on the third floor of a larger physicians' building right behind Little Company of Mary hospital. 

I truly love the staff here - everyone is so friendly. Over my handful of visits here, I've seen Dr. Joyce Schoettler, Christine Shim (a nurse practitioner), and on my most recent visit here yesterday - Dr. Katie Marks. They are all very good at what they do. 

If I had to pick one, Dr. Marks would definitely be my favorite - she's so caring and professional. I've been having a annoying cough for about two weeks and I thought it might be allergy related. She thought it could be post-nasal drip and could have left it at that, but took the extra step to have me take a few breathing tests. We ended up finding out I had inflammation in my lungs - which was something way different! 

I felt so at ease when I talked to Dr. Marks. She took the time to listen to every concern and question I had. She's amazing!

Making and rescheduling appointments is a breeze here - I've never had any issues with that. They always make sure to call you a couple days in advance to confirm your appointment time, that way you won't forget!

I HIGHLY recommend South Bay Allergy and Asthma! They are the best."

"I have been seeing Dr. Buchsbaum for more than five years with great results. I was a mess with pollen related allergies before starting treatments. The nurses who administer my shots are also excellent and caring."

"This is my 2nd time seeing Dr. Schoettler and I have to say both times she has been so nice. It's very much appreciated to come to such a nice practice. The ladies at the front desk have always been very friendly in person and over the phone. I had an emergency and they made me an appointment right away...Great office!"

"I've been seeing Dr. Buchsbaum for years now, he is wonderful. He was able to get my allergies under control after two other Dr.'s couldn't. I feel great now."

"I have been going to South Bay Allergy & Asthma for years. I live in Long Beach, but I go to this facility just to see Dr. Marks because she listens carefully to my symptoms and is very thorough with making sure she understands by asking questions for clarification.  She has a welcoming manner and demeanor, and is meticulous with her notes and recommendations. Twice, I've called and received telephone calls back from her on the same day. I would highly recommend her., and South Bay Allergy & Asthma."

"I highly recommend South Bay Allergy and Asthma Associates. I  
have been seeing Dr. Buchsbaum for almost a year now, and my allergies have improved tremendously.  He is a wonderful clinician, who is both extremely knowledgeable and highly professional.  He  has a wonderful bed side manner and he explained things to me that made it very easy to understand what issues I had and how the treatment was going to help. My experience was so positive, that I will be bringing my 6 year old daughter to see him in a few weeks."

"I found Dr. Marks-Cogan on Yelp about a month ago and decided to see her because my asthma symptoms have come back again.  She didn't just give me meds and try to rush me out of the room like so many other Doctors do.  She actually answered my questions and explained my condition to me in a way I could understand.  She told me why it's important to not just use my inhaler when I feel bad, but to keep using it even if I feel good!!!  She's was very friendly and easy to talk to and I would definitely recommend her if you're looking for a doctor who will actually talk to you like a regular person! My breathing has been MUCH better since my visit!!!"
