Why Choose Us? 

There are so many reasons to choose Allergy & Clinical Immunology Medical Group that it’s hard to name just one. So, we’ll start with our commitment to patient wellness.

As veteran physicians specializing in allergies and immunotherapy, we understand that the causes of allergies and asthma can be complex. We also understand the frustration associated with the treatment process – after all, finding the cause of an allergic reaction can be time-consuming and fruitless.

When you turn to our clinic, we can test you or your child for more than 150 different allergens, drastically increasing your chances of finding the cause of your reactions. This makes the process faster and safer.

 

Tailored to Your Needs 

Many allergy and asthma treatments can help drastically reduce your symptoms, leading to a healthier, happier life. However, not all treatments are right for all patients. 

That’s why our staff takes time to get to know you as an individual, ordering any tests we find reasonable for your complaints. It may take some time to determine the cause of your breathing troubles, but we ask for your patience, as the results can help us diagnose your issue and recommend the best treatment for your needs.
