Allergies: An Overview

An allergist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of problems such as allergies, asthma, autoimmune diseases and the evaluation and treatment of patients with recurrent infections, such as immunodeficiency diseases. The right care can make the difference between suffering with an allergic disease and feeling better.

Allergy symptoms occur when your immune system overreacts to an allergen—something that usually is harmless, such as plant pollen, dust mites, molds, insect stings or food. If you have an allergy, your immune system acts as if the allergen were dangerous, releasing chemical mediators that cause allergy symptoms. By visiting an allergist, you can expect an accurate diagnosis, a treatment plan that works, and educational information to help you manage your disease.

“Dr. Mery saved me!

“My son saw Dr. Mery years ago for his bad allergies.  He was tested, started shots and has been on shots for a couple of years now.  We cannot begin to express our gratitude to HCAA for helping our family.  Our son is completely different kid – he can now play on sports teams and enjoy playing outside with his buddies!  THANK YOU DR. MERY!”
