Expert care for allergic disease
Allergies are among the most common chronic conditions in the United States, affecting one in five Americans. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America ranks allergy as the third most common chronic disease among children. Allergies can be caused by airborne particles, such as pollen or animal dander, particular foods or medications, or bee stings. Reactions can range from mild discomfort such a runny nose, itchy eyes, coughing or sneezing, to a life-threatening emergency.
