Allergy & Immunology
A referral is required for all new patient appointments to ensure the patient is seeing the correct specialist for the correct condition.
Allergy & Immunology Providers
Our board-certified allergy and immunology physician provides high-quality care for children and adults. Listening to the patient and understanding health issues and goals is essential to developing a treatment plan to improve quality of life. If tolerated, treatment plans include ongoing home exposure to improve tolerance with the goal of keeping pets in the home. We perform comprehensive evaluations and allergy testing, and work with patients and their primary care provider to develop a plan to manage and treat symptoms.
Telehealth options are available. However, telehealth may not be appropriate for every type of appointment. Our staff will assist on which appointments to schedule via telehealth and which may require an in-person visit.
Recommendations are based on the latest clinical research and evidence with approaches that are proven to help.
