Allergy and Clinical Immunology
Allergy and Clinical Immunology provides a complete range of allergy services for adults and adolescents.
An allergy is an overreaction by your body's immune system to something that is usually considered harmless. Your allergic response may involve sneezing, itching, nasal dripping, swelling, coughing, wheezing, or vomiting. Millions of people have allergies.
We evaluate and treat asthma and allergies in patients from infancy to adulthood. Through a wide range of services—including diagnostic testing, education, and immunotherapy—we provide you with the tools you need to control allergies and asthma.
We work jointly with Pediatric Allergy and Clinical Immunology and Pediatric Pulmonology. We also work closely with Pulmonary and Critical Care medicine to coordinate care for patients with respiratory ailments.
