I’m Dr. Zach and I approve this message!

In the current political atmosphere, I hear ad after ad after ad touting the greatness of one candidate or slashing the work and reputation of the other candidate.  Well, this is not a political message.  What’s the message?  The message is simple:  “Find an Allergist, Find Relief.”  This is the campaign slogan used by the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology to highlight the advantages of seeing an expert.  www.AllergyAndAsthmaRelief.org

Nasal allergies are estimated to affect about 60 million Americans and the prevalence is increasing, affecting as many as 30% of adults and up to 40% of children.  The prevalence of asthma continues to rise and, if not controlled, can have dire short and long-term health consequences.  Anaphylaxis is a life threatening allergic reaction that can be triggered by many things (medications especially antibiotics and aspirin, latex, bee stings, foods, and even exercise.  The delay in time to diagnosis for primary immune deficiency disorders can be months.  Such delays can lead to complications of infections leading to ER visits or hospitalizations.  For accurate diagnosis and specific treatment for allergies, asthma and primary immune deficiency disorders, seek care from an expert.

Board-Certified Allergists (Who are they?)

An allergist is trained to find the source of your symptoms, treat it and help you feel healthy. After earning a bachelor’s degree as well as a medical degree, the doctor must then complete a three-year residency-training program in either internal medicine or pediatrics. After completing these required seven years of medical studies following college graduation, the fully-qualified physician finally completes two or three additional years of study in the field of asthma, allergy and immunology. Look for a board-certified allergist to find a doctor who is an expert in treating allergies and asthma.
