Allergy and Immunology

At TPMG, our Allergy and Immunology Specialists treat pediatric and adult patients of all ages, with a wide range of allergies, asthma, and immunologic disorders. Allergies are the most common chronic condition worldwide. An allergic reaction begins in the immune system. If you have an allergy, your immune system mistakes an otherwise harmless substance as an invader. Amongst the most common allergens are plant pollens, household dust, pets, industrial chemicals, food, medicines, and insect stings. Allergy suffers may become used to frequent symptoms of sneezing, nasal congestion, or wheezing. With the help of an allergist these symptoms can be prevented or controlled improving your quality of life.

An allergist/immunologist is the best qualified physician for diagnosing and treating asthma. Asthma attacks are often caused by allergies and exposure to allergens. Non-allergic triggers include smoke, pollution or cold air or changes in weather. Many people with asthma also have allergies. Treating the underlying allergic triggers for your asthma will help you avoid asthma symptoms.

The field of immunology is rapidly advancing, and the subspecialty provides opportunities to work with patients with rare and potentially life-threatening disorders of the immune system, as well as managing more complex issues related to diagnosis and treatment.
