Lung & Allergy Health Associates


The human lung is the fastest growing organ along with our immune system and becomes most apated within the first 12-14 years of life. Children with lung, allergy, and immunology problems often suffer from multiple conditions; therefore, it is our first and foremost goal to offer “total pulmonary and immunology care,” meaning board-certified specialists in pulmonology, allergy, and immunology work together to treat and improve the quality of life for children and young adults that deal with conditions relating to lungs and the respiratory system. These conditions include but are not limited to asthma, lung disease of premature infants, cystic fibrosis, allergies, and sleep disorders.

Our specialists are the core of the Lung and Allergy Health Associates and are key figures as academic faculty at the UC Irvine and UCLA School of Medicine. With a clinical patient base drawing from all of California, our pulmonary and immunology specialists are leaders in their fields as scientists and physicians bringing high quality of care to you and your family.
