He then trained in internal medicine and ultimately in allergy/immunology, both at Wilford Hall USAF Medical Center in San Antonio, TX. He is board-certified in both allergy/immunology and internal medicine.
I absolutely love being an allergist. The science of medicine has always fascinated me, so an area such as allergy and immunology lets me delve into the how and why of complex diseases and then add the human approach. The field of allergy and immunology is particularly rewarding, as I get to see patients substantially improve their quality of life as a result of treating their disease processes.
