Our allergy/immunology physicians specialize in diagnosing and treating allergies and asthma and getting them under control. These specialists work with you to identify triggers, so you can prevent and manage flare-ups and feel better.
An allergy occurs when your body overreacts to something that should be harmless. Doctors call these allergy triggers “allergens.” Some of the most common allergens include pollen, mold, animal dander, and certain foods. If you are allergic to them, your immune system goes into overdrive and creates symptoms that range from mild to life-threatening. That’s why it’s important to know what triggers your allergies, how you can manage them, and what to do when you have an allergy attack.
Depending on your symptoms, your primary care provider might refer you to a doctor who specializes in treating allergies and asthma.
Allergy / immunology services include:
- Allergy testing and treatment
- Allergy shots (immunotherapy)

The more you know about your allergy and asthma triggers, the more you can avoid them and breathe easier.
