You know you’re in good hands with our board certified allergists and immunologists at Allergy & Immunology Associates of Ann Arbor. Becoming board certified is a lengthy process that ensures that our doctors are the best in the business.

 

An allergist / immunologist is specially trained to diagnose, treat and manage many allergic disorders, including primary immunodeficiency problems. After completing medical school and graduating with a degree, physicians must undergo three years of training in internal medicine or pediatrics and pass the exam of either the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) or the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP).
