Introduction I am a board certified specialist in internal medicine as well as allergy and immunology. I practice in Greenville and Spartanburg, South Carolina. I attended the University of Chicago as an undergraduate—although this was before Barack Obama taught there!—and earned my B.A. in Chemistry in 1984. I earned my M.D. at the University of Illinois Medical School. Then, I did a three-year residency in internal medicine at Lutheran General Hospital. Finally, my two-year fellowship in allergy and immunology was at Rush Medical College. This blog is dedicated to my wife and four kids. My motto (courtesy of my wonderful wife) is, "If you sneeze or wheeze, come see me, please." She is the reason I went into allergy. She has severe allergies, and I wanted to learn about how to take better care of her health. The service organizations I support are the American Lung Association and Boy Scouts of America. The purpose of this blog is to help people understand and manage allergic diseases. This blog is the direct result of patients asking me questions. I am always trying to improve, so if you notice an error, please contact me.
Interests Boy Scouts of America, Kuk Sool Won martial arts.
