We are here to help you live better

At Highland Park Allergy and Asthma Specialists, we specialize in treating allergies, asthma, and immune deficiencies in children and adults.  

 

Our mission is to provide the highest quality, up-to-date medical care with compassion, empathy, and understanding. We use a team approach and empower our patients to take back control of their lives and

Patient Stories

“The day I met Dr. Clarke my life changed. She spent time listening and testing, then came up with a treatment plan that fit my lifestyle, not telling me I had to change it. When issues came up, she found the best way to treat them quickly and effectively. For me, she is one of the best doctors I’ve had, and I would recommend her to anyone who struggles with asthma or allergies. I no longer dread “allergy season,” and can finally breathe! She’s my medical hero for sure!!”
