An Allergy Doctor Versus A General Practitioner:

Immunology & Allergies- Are they Related?

Immunology is a very broad branch of biological science. It is commonly defined as the study of the immune system. In medicine, an immunologist is a specialist who uses his knowledge to Meet our Phoenix Immunologist Dr Habib Khazen!evaluate, diagnose and manage patients with immunological disorders like asthma, sinus allergies, sinusitis, and more. In Phoenix, immunologists who treat allergies are commonly referred to as allergy doctors.

The Role of the Allergy/Immunologist:

Unlike other types of diseases, allergic disease isn’t a condition that can “go away” easily. Some people dismiss allergies and regard them as a mere nuisance. Patients who suffer from allergies know that this condition can  be debilitating and  keep them from their daily routines.

An effective Phoenix immunologist diagnoses the condition and provides a management plan to help the patient manage his allergy or asthma better, reducing the number of times the patient misses school or work because he/she has to stay at home to rest. The immunologist uses different allergy tests to determine what a patient is allergic to and what triggers allergic reactions. These tests include allergy skin testing, pulmonary function testing, penicillin testing, food testing, chemical and food patch testing, and venom and stinging insect testing.

Specially Licensure:

An allergy immunologist such as Dr. Habib-Khazen and Dr Alasaly had to go through years of education and training in order to learn how to treat and manage allergies and asthma.

Our doctors must complete a medical degree, and then, train as a physician in either pediatrics or internal medicine. Once training has been completed, the physician must pass either the American Board of Internal Medicine or the American Board of Pediatrics. To become an immunologist, a physician must undergo an additional two years of study (fellowship) focusing on immunology, and  pass the American Board of Allergy and Immunology’s certifying exam.

An allergist/immunologist’s education and training doesn’t stop there. Because immunology is applied to several other scientific disciplines, new discoveries in the field are continually being made. To remain a certified immunologist in Phoenix, continued medical education is  necessary in order to keep up with the latest news and remain competent in the field.

Consult our Allergy Asthma Clinics which are renowned for the quality of care:

Allergist or PCP-Which is the right way to go if you have allergies?

How do you know whether to go to an allergy specialist or your primary care doctor?

Allergist vs PCP -Which-Is-Better

Wondering why repeated visits to your Primary Care Physician for allergies and asthma aren’t giving you the relief you hoped for? Asthma and allergies often occur together, resulting in a variety of symptoms ranging from itchy eyes and runny nose to skin reactions, shortness of breath, wheezing, and chest tightness (asthma). This type of allergy-induced asthma can be challenging to manage. If you aren’t finding relief from symptoms with the help of your PCP, a visit to our great allergy and asthma clinic may be just what the doctor ordered (or just what the doctor should order…).
