Allergy and Immunology

Allergies affect an estimated one out of every three people, making it difficult for them to enjoy simple pleasures such as walking in the park or playing with the family pet. An allergic person is over-sensitive to harmless substances that cause no problems for most people.

The Department of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology offers individualized diagnosis and treatment for infants, children, adolescents and adults with allergies. Our physicians are leaders in the treatment and research of allergic and immune diseases. Care is offered in several convenient locations.

Our physicians are involved in pioneering research into more effective methods of diagnosis and treatment. In recent years, they have led nationally recognized research into the use of sublingual (under-the-tongue) tablets as a convenient alternative to injections for allergy sufferers. 

Dr. David Skoner and Dr. Deborah Gentile lead the Center for Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. They can be reached at 412.359.6640. Care is offered in convenient locations.
