A graduate of UMDNJ who completed his residency at Brown University and
a fellowship at Thomas Je;erson University, Dr. Aslam Lateef specializes in the
treatment and cure of patients a;ected by hypersensitivity, with a special focus on
nonpharmaceutical strategies. Cases are often more complex than first suspected,
requiring a multistep approach for proper diagnosis and treatment.
“Allergic or hypersensitive conditions often overlap with one another,” says
Dr. Lateef. Patients complaining of sinus trouble may also su;er from snoring,
itching, headaches and food sensitivity, all of which may be interrelated. Once the
totality of problems is unearthed, a custom plan combining medicine, lifestyle
change and nutrition is developed. Dr. Lateef o;ers trigger avoidance education,
nonsurgical sinus treatment, and nondrug complementary and natural remedies.
“Our focus on safe, e;ective nonpharmaceutical therapy sets us apart and brings
wonderful results to our patients,” he says.
