Asthma, Allergy and Immunology Consultation Service

The Asthma, Allergy and Immunology Consultation Service diagnoses and treats disorders of the immune system that are expressed as hypersensitivity. Specialized services provided include hypersensitivity diagnostic skin testing, allergen immunotherapy, pulmonary function testing, immunologic diagnostic services, rhinolaryngoscopy, counseling regarding allergic disorders, and the diagnosis and treatment of allergies due to drugs, environmental allergens, food, and insects.

Our immunologists are involved in extensive clinical research trials to test new immunotherapies for chronic viral infections, in particular infections due to Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis C Virus, and Cytomegalovirus. 

The practice also offers first-rate care in the area of pediatric allergy and immunology.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Talking about Edith Schussler, M.D.

"Dr. Schussler is amazing! Our previous allergy doctor barely spent 10 minutes talking to us and never responded to our calls after our test results came in. In contrast, our visit with Dr. Schussler lasted a long time. She asked many questions, patiently responded to all our questions and concerns, and we never felt rushed. And she responded to all our follow-up calls and emails the same day! My 6 year old loves her and so do we! Her staff are very helpful too. (also, almost no wait time)."
