Allergies, asthma, and immune diseases can have a drastic effect on an individual’s quality of life. Our team of physicians, nurse practitioners, and staff work together to help diagnosis and treat patients who suffer from pediatric and adult allergies, skin disorders, sinus issues, asthma, and immunological issues, as well as food and drug allergies. Come see us at one of our convenient locations in Homewood, Hoover, Alabaster, Chelsea, Cullman, Trussville, Bessemer, or Oxford.
Why See an Allergist?
Becoming an allergist / immunologist requires at least an additional nine years of training beyond a bachelor’s degree. After completing medical school, physicians undergo three years of training in internal medicine or pediatrics and pass the exam of either the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) or the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). To specialize in Allergy-Immunology, it is next necessary for internists and pediatricians to complete an additional two years of study, called a fellowship, in an accredited allergy / immunology training program. They are then qualified to sit for the American Board of Allergy and Immunology (ABAI) certification exam. All of our allergists are certified by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology: the only recognized specialty that cares for patients with allergic and immunological diseases.
