Allergy and asthma care

No two allergy or asthma patients are alike. That’s why it’s important to go somewhere with a comprehensive team that will get to the bottom of your particular condition.

The Allergy and Immunology Clinic on the Anschutz Medical Campus in Metro Denver offers a multidisciplinary approach, where you can be evaluated by allergy, asthma, immunology and pulmonary specialists, all in one place. This philosophy allows us to provide quick answers for the most common or complex cases out there.

Allergy and asthma treatments

While we offer a wide variety of treatment options, we only recommend the ones we’re confident will work for you. Whether we prescribe allergy shots, an inhaler, speech therapy or a combination of them all, we cater everything to your specific condition.

  • Loss of smell
  • Mast cell disorders including mastocytosis
  • Medication allergies (antibiotics, aspirin, and others)
  • Nasal blockage/congestion/obstruction
  • Nasal polyps
  • Recurrent infections
  • Rhinitis
  • Shortness of breath
  • Urticaria/hives


We begin by evaluating your symptoms, so we’re sure you get only the testing and medical imaging you need, like:

  • Allergen testing
  • Bronchoscopy
  • CAT (CT) scan of the sinuses
  • Exercise-induced bronchospasm
  • Laryngeal evaluation
  • Laryngoscopy

Specialty services

Severe asthma program
For the most serious asthma cases, you can take comfort in having easy access to our team of experts in every field related to your condition. Our allergists, laryngologists, pulmonologists and many others take a much more targeted approach when it comes to your diagnosis and only suggest the testing and treatment options that apply to your unique situation. As one of our patients, you also have the opportunity to participate in our asthma registry, that will benefit you through more innovative care and clinical trials to get you on the road to relief.
Penicillin allergy desensitization
A penicillin allergy can result in being prescribed less effective antibiotics. Once we’ve studied your detailed history, performed skin testing and other procedures to determine the extent of your penicillin allergy, we can work on desensitizing you to the allergen in one of two ways:

  • Rapid desensitization. Inpatients in the hospital are given high-dose allergy shots to immediately increase their tolerance to antibiotics, anesthesia and other vitally important medications.
  • Gradual desensitization. Outpatients receive low-dose allergy shots, each with an increased dosage to build up a tolerance over time, so the patient can get the allergy removed from their chart.
