Two fellowship-trained physicians have joined USA Health’s Mobile Diagnostic Center to treat pediatric and adult patients for asthma and allergy conditions. Keerthi Reddy, M.D., and Robert Albright Greer Jr., D.O., are now accepting new patients by referral.
“We are delighted to welcome Dr. Greer and Dr. Reddy to the USA Health system,” said Michelle Dudley, executive director of practice management and assistant vice president for medical affairs at USA Health. “Because so many children and adults suffer from asthma and allergy symptoms along the upper Gulf Coast, there is a true need to offer these specialized services to our community.”
Greer graduated from William Carey University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Hattiesburg, Miss. He completed residency and fellowship training at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Miss.
Reddy earned a degree in medicine from American University of Antigua College of Medicine in Osbourn, Antigua. She completed residency training at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tenn., and fellowship training at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Miss.
Asthma is a chronic condition that causes inflammation and narrowing of the airways. Symptoms include coughing, shortness of breath and chest tightness. Through a series of tests, an allergist can determine if a patient has asthma. The allergist then works with the patient to determine the best course of treatment to effectively manage the disease.
Reddy and Greer will treat conditions including environmental allergies, sinusitis and rhinitis, asthma, chronic cough, hives, swelling, anaphylaxis, eczema, contact dermatitis, food and drug allergies, and insect sting allergies.
Tests and treatments offered by the new USA Health physicians include allergen skin testing, food and drug allergy testing, allergy shots, allergen sublingual immunotherapy, complete pulmonary function testing, spirometry, biologic medications for asthma and allergic diseases, patch testing for contact dermatitis and oral food challenges.
The practice is located at Mobile Diagnostic Center, 6701 Airport Blvd. Suite A101, in Mobile. For more information, call 251-633-8880.
