Welcome to Consultants in Asthma, Allergy and Immunology!
Our primary mission is to provide state of the art medical care to patients of all ages suffering from
allergies, asthma, and diseases of the immune system.
The center is staffed by Drs. Peter Benincasa and Richard E. Luka both board certified specialists in adult and pediatric allergy and immunology. We focus in the diagnosis and treatment of allergic diseases involving the upper and lower airways, the eyes, the skin and the GI tract. Conditions that we commonly treat include asthma, allergic rhinitis/sinusitis, allergic conjunctivitis, urticaria and angioedema, anaphylaxis, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, food allergies, drug allergies, insect allergies, autoimmune diseases and immunodeficiency.
Our services include skin testing for environmental allergens, food allergens, contact allergens and drugs; lung function testing including provocation studies to determine lower airway hypersensitivity; and challenge testing for foods and drugs. We provide patient education and perform allergen desensitization treatment (“allergy shots”).
We will try our very best to make your experience in our offices a positive one and properly diagnose and treat your underlying problem.
What is an allergist?
An allergist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of asthma and other allergic diseases. The allergist is specially trained to identify the factors that trigger asthma or allergies. Allergists help people treat or prevent their allergy problems. After earning a medical degree, the allergist completes a three-year residency-training program in either internal medicine or pediatrics. Next the allergist completes two or three more years of study in the field of allergy and immunology. You can be certain that your doctor has met these requirements if he or she is certified by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology.
