Allergy and Immunology

Allergists/immunologists diagnose and treat patients who have asthma, allergic and immunologic conditions.

The work of clinical allergists is more familiar to the public than the more scientifically oriented activities of the immunologist, but both allergy and immunology are concerned with the human body's reaction to foreign substances, no matter what the practice setting. This is a sub- specialty of either internal medicine or pediatrics.
