The Specialty of Allergy

Many physicians can treat allergy symptoms. An allergist is the only physician specially trained to diagnose the specific causes of allergic disease.

An Allergist is a physician who has been specially trained in the diagnosis, management and treatment of allergic diseases and asthma. To become an allergist a physician completes at least nine years of study. This study includes:

  • Three years of training in internal medicine or pediatrics, including obtaining certification in internal medicine from the American Board of Internal Medicine, or in pediatrics from the American Board of Pediatrics
  • Four years of medical school
  • Two – three years of additional training in an Allergy and Immunology Fellowship program.

Additionally, upon completion of Fellowship training, physicians may obtain certification from the American Board of Allergy and Immunology by successfully completing the Board examination. The physicians of Certified Allergy & Asthma Consultants have obtained this certification.

Doctors

The physicians of Certified Asthma & Allergy Consultants have each completed sub-specialty training in allergic, respiratory, and immunologic diseases. They are board-certified specialists in allergy and clinical immunology and are highly competent to diagnose and treat both adults and children with conditions relating to allergies and asthma.
