As an allergy patient myself and the mother of children with allergies, I understand on a personal level how allergies impact everyday life. I enjoy working closely with patients and their families to develop an individualized plan to manage their allergies and asthma. Because allergic disorders are often chronic conditions, they require a partnership between the doctor and patient. I find getting to know my patients and working closely with them to control their allergies the most satisfying part of being a doctor. I use a combination of environmental controls, medications, and immunotherapy (allergy shots) to control allergies. I work with each patient to understand their concerns, goals, and preferences so that together we come up with an approach to best manage their allergies.

Dr. Rachel Story is the BEST.
Dr. Story is simply wonderful! I came in for a scheduled appointment for Penicillin allergy testing and asked her a question about some labs that I had performed recently (ordered by another physician outside the Northshore System). She told me I was in exactly the right place and proceeded to address this problem/question at my visit, instead of asking me to return another time. It really helped ease my mind and I really appreciate her taking the extra time with me right then.
There is no doc out there like Dr. Story. We travel from the South Suburbs to see her because she has been so wonderful the past 11 years of my sons life!
Dr. Story is AMAZING! I would pay out of pocket to have her see my son. The. Best.
Dr. Story is wonderful!
Dr Story is truly one of the very best! Her professional care for me as a patient is evident in her remembering my medical history and our discussions from past appointments, the thoroughness in her guidance and further recommendations, her taking of notes and reviewing my other medical procedures, and then honestly showing celebratory happiness for my renewed health over this past year! She is kind and friendly, personable and professional -- someone I honestly put my trust in -- and I feel confident and calm in her presence, knowing I can share w/her my medical concerns. She listens, shows compassion, and truly gives excellent medical support for my overall health and wellbeing.
Dr. Story was exceptionally attentive and informative!
We drive an hour to see Dr. Story (each way). Our confidence in her capability and care is unsurpassed
Dr. Story is fantastic. She listened to all I had to say, was not in a rush and explained everything about current treatment and possible future treatment if needed.
Dr. Story is one of finest physicians I know. She has had a significant positive impact on my health, is always available when I absolutely need help, and has been a trusted advisor for years. I cannot overstate how highly I feel about Dr. Story.
