Allergy, Asthma & Immunology

Allergy, Asthma & Immunology

Asthma, allergies and immune system disorders affect patients in different ways. People who experience symptoms such as congestion or breathing difficulties may mistake these symptoms for an ongoing cold. At UT Health East Texas Physicians, our allergists and immunologists work in partnership with you to identify typical triggers, common indicators of allergies and establish a preventive treatment plan.

Our goal is to help patients find relief by easing symptoms and preventing complications. We are committed to treatment that gives patients freedom to live fuller, more active lives.
