The faculty and staff of the Johns Hopkins Division of Allergy & Clinical Immunology are devoting their careers to research, diagnosis and treatment of allergic and hypersensitivity problems, asthma, and other allergic and immunologic diseases. Highly regarded experts in allergy-immunology, most faculty have special individual interests, which focus their practice on particular disorders. What this means for our patients is that they can count on the division’s care providers not only for their depth of medical knowledge, but also for being cared for in a rich scientific environment where innovative treatments and diagnostic procedures are being evaluated. This scientific grounding is coupled with a compassionate approach to providing needed care efficiently and co-operatively.
