Board-Certified Allergists, Immunologists & Asthma Doctors

The physicians at The Asthma Center are the premier allergy, asthma and immunology specialists in the Delaware Valley and Philadelphia metropolitan area for treating both adults and children. Our doctors trained at the best medical programs across the United States and maintain their commitment to the medical community by regularly publishing research in peer-reviewed medical journals, lecturing to physicians at conferences locally, nationally and internationally, and training local students and young physicians-in-training. All of our board-certified allergists and immunologists have completed extensive training and licensing to treat allergy, asthma, sinus, and immunology conditions in patients.

Why Board-Certified in Allergy & Immunology?

All physicians in the United States are licensed to practice medicine by the states where they see patients. This however does not specify whether a physician can practice a specific medical specialty, like dermatology, orthopedics or allergy. Board-certification assures the public and medical community that the physician has completed an accredited educational program and passed evaluations to provide patients with high-quality care in allergy and immunology. The board-certification process in allergy requires medical school graduates to complete further training, including a three year residency program in pediatrics or internal medicine followed by a two to three year fellowship specializing in allergy and immunology. Completion requires passing certification examinations to uphold consistent standards across the country, and physicians must maintain their certification with continuing education throughout their careers.  The allergy and immunology training prepares doctors to identify and treat immune system disorders that can cause allergies, asthma, chronic lung disease, skin diseases, and immune deficiencies. From the extensive medical training and specialization, allergists are best able to detect and treat a patient’s allergens and discern which other conditions can masquerade as allergies. Unlike ENTs, allergists do not perform surgery.
