At Allergy Associates of Western Michigan, we are dedicated to providing relief from allergies, asthma, and other conditions that affect so many both perennially and seasonally.
We welcome adult and pediatric patients, and will provide patient education, as well as tailored evaluation and treatment plans to fit the needs of both new and returning patients.
The physicians, both of whom are board certified in allergy and immunology, specialize in treating asthma, sinus disease, seasonal and perennial allergies, insect allergies, and hives and other allergic skin conditions.
We currently participate with most insurance plans, but we encourage you to contact our office to ensure we will be able to assist your patient based on their specific coverage.
Please contact us to start the scheduling process for your patient.
Please contact our extract lab with questions regarding serum or allergen immunotherapy questions.
