The Institute for Asthma and Allergy is a unique center where careful diagnoses, cutting-edge treatments, on-going research, and education of patients are the primary objectives. Our physicians and health care providers devote themselves to teaching pediatric and adult patients about their diseases, the underlying causes of their symptoms, the application of the latest treatments and research, and the potential benefits and dangers of these treatments.
Patients with asthma, sinusitis, rhinitis, anaphylaxis, food allergy, drug allergy, angioedema, urticaria, itching, eczema, otitis, IgG and IgA deficiencies, and other immunologic abnormalities are routinely referred to the Institute by both primary care physicians and specialists, particularly when patients require extra care or are difficult-to-manage with standard treatment programs. The Institute is proud of its’ capacity to manage these challenging patients and is honored to receive these referrals. Moreover, because of the focus on teaching and the concentration of complex patients, residents, and fellows from Washington-area medical programs are frequently found rounding with the teaching faculty of the Institute.
The goal of the Institute is to provide patients with comprehensive care and treatment for their asthma and allergies. In order to achieve this goal, the Institute offers patients convenient and flexible access to its physicians and staff members.
