This clinic is known for adults and kids who need: Diagnosis and treatment of asthma, allergic rhinitis and other diseases of the upper and lower respiratory tract, drug and insect hypersensitivity, latex allergy, hives, allergic skin disease, recurrent infections, and congenital immunologic deficiencies.
What you might not know about this clinic: All the physicians at Hedberg Allergy & Asthma Center (shown right) are board-certified, and there are several reasons why that’s so important. While many doctors may treat allergies, a Board-Certified allergist has the intensive training patients want specialists to have. Allergists complete 4 years of medical school as well as an intensive residency training program after graduating medical school. Allergists then complete either a residency in internal medicine or pediatrics. (Some doctors do a combined residency in both fields.) They then go on to complete a 2, 3, or 4-year fellowship program in allergy and immunology, preparing them to diagnose and treat allergies of all kinds, diagnose and manage asthma, prepare and manage allergy shots, diagnose and manage immunodeficiencies, as well as other conditions. No other type of doctor receives this same level of specialized training in these areas. Allergists must also take and pass a rigorous board examination to become board-certified, and they must complete specific activities each year to maintain certification. (They also retake the board examination periodically.) Only the doctors who are current with maintaining certification can call themselves “board-certified.” Click here to see the qualifications of all the Board-Certified Allergists/Immunologists at Hedberg.
