What is an immunologist?
This is a type of medical professional who specializes in managing problems associated with the immune system, such as autoimmune diseases and allergies. Some immunologists study immunology exclusively, while others practice the medicine and help patients with allergies and other conditions.
Are allergists and immunologists the same?
Often, the terms “allergist” and “immunologist” refer to the same kind of medical professional specialized in the immune system and allergies. Some allergists will focus mostly on diagnosing and treating patients with allergies, and sometimes an immunologist will mostly study immunology and try to treat other types of immune disorders.
