Dr. Gupta was in private practice of Pediatric and Adult Allergy in New Britain, Connecticut for more than 40 years. He recently moved to the Bay Area to be near his children and grandchildren who have settled here. His clinical interests are Hay fever, Asthma, Food Allergy, Insect Allergy, Penicillin Allergy and Urticaria. He does skin testing for food, drug, insect and environmental allergies, contact testing for sensitivity to chemicals, metals and other agents, and food and drug challenges. He also does blood testing in patients for whom skin testing is not possible.
Dr. Gupta has extensive experience taking care of patients who have Eczema, Contact Dermatitis and Eosinophilic Esophagitis.

Dr. Gupta believes doctor--patient communication and cooperation is the best road to success and that each patient must have an individual and unique plan to fit their situation and time commitments.
