"Pollution, climate change and urbanized living environments are making more allergies. Let's get to the bottom of your personal circumstances to develop strategies together to identify allergen exposure, mitigate allergies and rebuild your resilience."

The Austrian Society of Allergology and Immunology (ÖGAI), of which I had the privilege to be president between 2021 and 2022, is the parent society of allergologists in Austria and has a lot to offer, both for physicians and patients. Have a look at the ÖGAI homepage.

Dear patients!

A picture says more than 1000 words - that's why I've put together some videos for you around my CV, so that you can also get to know your allergist a little in advance.
