An allergist or immunologist physician is a doctor who specializes in preventing, diagnosing, managing and treating allergic disease.  The primary focus of an allergist/immunologist is to manage immune system disorders such as allergies, asthma, inherited immunodeficiency diseases, and autoimmune diseases.   When an allergist's or immunologist's level of medical care or skill falls below the standard of care and inflicts permanent injury or death to a patient, medical malpractice may have occurred.   Unfortunately, even the best physicians can commit errors and mistakes that may result in serious injuries or wrongful death.

Allergist/Immunologist malpractice may include:

  • Delay in Diagnosis or Diagnostic Errors;
  • Failure to Diagnose;
  • Failure to Chart;
  • Failure to Document Clinical Findings;
  • Failure to Educate or Warn Patients of Food Allergy Risks;
  • Failure to Educate Patient on Proper Use of Epinephrine;
  • Failure to Prescribe Epinephrine;
  • Failure to Supervise;
  • Failure to Treat Dangerous Food Allergies;
  • Failure to Treat Sickness, Illnesses or Disease after Diagnosis;
  • Failure to Warn of the Danger of Anaphylaxis or Anaphylactic Shock;
  • Medication Error. 

Some conditions an allergist or immunologist physician might treat include:

  • Allergic reactions to animals;
