Allergy & Asthma
Allergy is the branch of medicine that treats hypersensitivity disorders of the immune system. Allergic reactions occur when a person's immune system reacts to normally harmless substances in the environment.
Asthma is a common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways. Recent studies prove that asthma patients who are under the care of an allergist are less likely to visit an emergency room or be hospitalized as a result of their asthma.

When to See an Allergist
Often, the symptoms of asthma or allergies develop gradually over time. Allergy sufferers may become used to frequent symptoms such as sneezing, nasal congestion, or wheezing. With the help of an allergist, these symptoms usually can be prevented or controlled with major improvement in quality of life.
Effectively controlling asthma and allergies requires planning, skill, and patience. The allergist, with his or her specialized training, can develop a treatment plan for your individual condition. The goal will be to enable you to lead a life that is as normal and symptom-free as possible.
