What is an allergist?

Dedication and years of training are required to become a Board Certified Allergist/Immunologist. Four years of college followed by four years of medical school are just the beginning of an Allergist's training. A two to three-year residency specializing in pediatrics or internal medicine is followed by two to three years of highly specialized training in allergy, asthma and immunology (Immunology is the study of how the body fights infection).

No other type of physician is as qualified to treat allergic diseases. After training, each physician must be Board Certified in either Pediatrics or Internal Medicine before becoming Board Certified in Allergy/Immunology. All the physicians of Allergy & Asthma Specialists are Board Certified in Allergy and Immunology.
