At Arkansas Allergy & Asthma clinic, we offer comprehensive and specialized care to pediatric and adult patients. Our experienced physician specialists offer complete environmental, food, and stinging insect allergy testing as well as specialized diagnostic and medical therapies for asthma, eczema and a variety of other allergic conditions. Services are provided at two convenient locations in Little Rock and Conway.
Patients are often confused when it comes to what type of physician should be taking care of conditions such as allergies and asthma. Generally, some mild allergies might be treated by primary care physicians; however, in order to obtain information on the exact cause of your allergy, as well as the latest and most effective treatment options, a board certified allergy specialist physician is the most qualified option to provide the correct diagnosis and treatment.
What is an Allergist?
Allergists are physician specialists who treat allergies, as well as a wide variety of other conditions. Many allergies occur when the body’s defense system reacts negatively to common things as if they were foreign invaders. These reactions can occur in a large portion of the population and often cause symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, itching eyes and a runny nose. Allergic reactions can also lead to conditions such as asthma, hay fever, sinusitis, food allergies, anaphylaxis, allergic rashes, and hives. These conditions are best treated by a board certified allergy physician.
The allergist is a physician who has first trained in a basic specialty, and then completed a second training period, typically two years or longer, in allergic and immunologic disease diagnosis and treatment.
While any physician might treat allergies, it is only the trained physician allergist/ immunologist who is the expert on allergies. Our physicians are able to apply the latest knowledge, techniques, and tools needed to not only determine what is causing your allergy, but also to determine the best treatment for you.
At Arkansas Allergy we treat our patients like family.
