Biography
Alamo Asthma & Allergy Associates is dedicated to providing diagnosis and treatment of allergies for San Antonio, Texas, and surrounding communities. We treat each patient as a partner and make patient education a central component of medical care. Sensitivity and discretion are used in handling all of our patients' concerns. An allergy/immunology specialist is a physician trained to prevent, diagnosis, manage, and treat allergic and immunologic diseases. Completion of residency training in either pediatrics or internal medicine is required prior to beginning fellowship medical training in allergy. During training, physicians learn to treat both children and adults with a variety of medical problems. Also during training, expertise is developed in performing skin testing for allergies and designing recipes for "allergy shots." Allergy testing and even allergy shots are sometimes offered by non-allergy trained physicians. The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology f eels that allergy shots should be formulated and administered only by those physicians who have had specific medical training in this area.

Made a difference!

I am very happy with Alamo Asthma and Allergy. The office staff is very courteous, professional, and always greets me with a smile. Dr. Vaughn is friendly and thorough. At the end of the day, all this is nice but what makes a difference is if I feel better. I do. I have been a patient for the past 1-1/2 years. During this time my allergy symptoms have subsided substantially. I strongly recommed Alamo Asthma and Allergy.

Improved my quality of life in SA, TX

I moved to San Antonio TX from the Midwest and became very ill. After my 3rd round of anitbotics my primary suggested I may want to be allergy tested. He referred me to Dr Vaughn. I had 25 things in SA that I was allergic to and needed shots. Dr Adrian Vaughn has turned my life around. Now after 3 years of me taking shots religiously, I tested negative to all but a few things and they were greatly reduced. Since starting shots I have not had sinus infections or bronchitis, even though my immune system is low. I am so glad to have found Dr Vaughn and really enjoy my visits to her. She is very engaging , funny, freindly, yet professional and knowlegable. I just love her. Maggie, the one that gives the shots, has become a friend of mine as I see her two times a week, every week. I am now going to be reducing my visits and injections and see how I do, but I am feeling a bit of a sense of loss and withdrawl as I will miss seeing everyone. I know they really helped me to survive here in TX . I highly recommend this group if you are in need of an Allergist. They are supreme! Just can not say enough great things about them. Word of advise, follow their treatment plan and be religious for the best results. It will pay off big time! They know what they are doing for the best results.

Alamo Asthma & Allergy does allergy shots right

I love cats, but unfortunately I developed an allergy to cats. I own several cats but they would be unable to fend for themselves outdoors. Even the best professional housekeepers I employed could not keep my house clean enough for me to tolerate being in my own home without nasal congestion and even asthma symptoms. Dr. Adrianne suggested allergy shots as an alternative to my ineffective medications. After 2 years of receiving allergy shots once every 2-3 weeks, I became symptom-free in my home. I did experience some irritation at the injection site of the shot early in the treatment, but this has now resolved. Dr. Adrianne explained that some non-Allergists use low dose "allergy shots" or allergy "drops" to avoid allergic reactions but that low dose shots or "drop" therapies have been shown to be inferior in effectiveness to "conventional" high dose shots. My feeling is that if you're going to spend several years getting a treatment, you need to get one that works. I highly recommend the Drs. at Alamo Asthma & Allergy.

very helpful and kind

Our family has been going to the Vaughns for allergy treatment for several years now. It has made cedar season tolerable for the first time for those of us allergic. I had tried allergy shots as a child and therefore was skeptical that they would make much of a difference in my asthma symptoms. But I would say these are not your fathers allergy shots. They seem to be both more careful in terms of safety with precautionary medications and quite aggressive in getting the response needed to alleviate allergic response. My asthma symptoms are dramatically reduced from following their advice on the shots and on home allergen prevention. You do have to show up for the shots, but it is worth the effort to avoid misery. I strongly advise people who are miserable to seek out their advice. They are both wonderful. They will spend time with you and go over your specific needs. Every person who works there is friendly and kind every time we visit.

Allergy Shots can be Miraculous

I brought my son Eli to see Dr. Mike 3 years ago. He is 8 now and has had asthma since age 2. He used to take multiple medications and used a nebulizer for his asthma controller medication (pulmicort) twice per day. When he was in kindergarten, his asthma prevented him from being outside during the spring. Every March his eyes would swell closed and his asthma would worsen. Dr. Mike found that his skin testing was severely positive to live Oak pollen and there were several Oak trees on Eli's school playground. Eli also had sensitivity to dog and dustmites. We had never observed any problems around our indoor dog burt after Dr. Vaughn suggested we keep the dog out of Eli's bedroom, his night-time asthma got much better. We also used dust mite covers for the pillows and mattress. Because Eli would be exposed to dog allergens when he was at his grandmother's home we requested allergy shots for Eli. After 3 years on allergy shots (given twice per month at Dr. mike's office) Eli's asthma is gone and he is off all of his medications. Dr. Mike and Dr. Adrianne are both great with kids.

Great service

I took my daughter Claire to see Dr. Adrianne. Claire had a stuffy nose for one year with clear drainage which was not responding to allergy medications prescribed by her pediatrician. Dr. Vaughn tested Claire for allergies by skin testing (no needles were used) and found that she did not have allerfies. Dr. Adrianne then ordered a CAT scan that showed there was a chronic sinus infection. After 2 courses on antibiotics, Claire's symptoms disappaered. The Dr. also tested Claire's immune system and found she had poor protection against Strep pneumonia that she corrected with a vaccination. Claire has been weel for over 6 months. I highly recommend this allergy practice.

I brought my daughter Claire to Dr. Adrianne for a stuffy nose that had lasted for a year. We had been given allergy medications by our pediatrician without effect. Dr. Adrianne tested Claie for allergies by skin testing, which to my surprise did not make her cry. (she is typically not very tough). There were no allergies found. Dr. Adrianne then ordered a CAT scan and discovered that Claire had a chronic sinus infection. After 2 courses of antibiotics she was better. Claire was given a vaccine to boost immunity to strep pneumonia and over the last 6 months, Claire has been well. I highly recommend this office.

Best Allergist in SATX

I brought my 7 y.o. child to Dr. Adrianne Vaughn for evaluation of a stuffy nose that had been present for a year.. My pediatric Dr. had said it was allergies because the nasal; drainage was typicall clear, but allergy medications were not working. Dr. Vaughn skin tested Claire (which did not hurt) and found that she did not have any allergies. She then ordered a CAT scan that showed a chronic sinus infection. The doctor treated her with antibiotic (2 courses) and Claire's symptoms resolved. Dr.Adrianne also checked her immune system and found that she was not making antibodies to protect her from infection with a bacteria called strep. pneumonia. She gave Claire a shot for this problem and she has been well for the last 6 months. I highly recommend this practice to anyone with nasal problems.

Allergy shots saved my relationship

I am an ER doctor in SATX. I first met Dr. Mike as a coworker in 1995. He is the only doctor I know of that is Board Certified to practice Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Allergy & Immunology. In addition, he has a PhD. in Immunology. I first sought his care for my Asthma and Allergy issues several years after he transitioned from ER medicine to full -time Allergy. My spouse has a cat she thinks is our second child (we have only one human child). The cat has the full run of the house and over the years, my allergic sensitivity had grown to the point that I was becoming miserable in my own home; with nasal congestion and wheezing after being in the home for as little as 30 minutes. When I gave my wife the ultimatum ""either the cat goes or I do"" she simply replied ""don't more too far away, long distance relationships don't seem to last."" It was then I realized I had to deal with the fact that I had to get allergy shots. Even though I am a physician, I feared the needle. Dr. Mike convinced me that poisoning the cat could get me into real trouble and that I had no other options. I began shots in 2007 and within 1 year of getting shots once every 2 weeks, I could live in my home without daily allegy and asthma medication use. I also noticed that my exercise induced asthma resolved as well. Prior to beginning allergy shots, I had 5-6 sinus infections per year. Dr.Mike checked my immune system to see if I was making antibodies to Strep. pneumonia, a bacteria responsible for about 1/2 of all sinus infections. He discovered that I was not well protected against this organism and administered a ""pneumonia shot"" that corrected this problem. Since that time, I have not had a single sinus infection. My daughter has also had recurrent sinus infections (and had tons of ear infections as a young child), Dr.Mike suggested the same immune evaluation for her and found that she had not made protective antibodies to the 4 Strep. pnuemonia vaccines (PCV-7) she was given before age 2. She was given the pneumovax shot (PCV-23) as well and has had a dramatically reduced frequency of infections. My whole family loves their office and staff. I could not more wholeheartedly recommend an allergist to those with similar medical or cat problems). We especially love Maggie the shot nurse, sometimes I can't even feel the shot when it is given to me and the clinic shot hours are great. I don't know any other office that is open at 0730 in the am.

fixed my recurrent sinus infections

As a lifelong sufferer of skin allergies and more recently, environmental allergies, I have found success with the treatment advice of Dr. Adrianne Vaughn. My symptoms have been under control for many years due to Dr. Vaughn's intervention.

My quality of life has been greatly improved with my allergies and exercise-induced asthma in check. I enjoy regular outdoor activities regardless of the season thanks to Dr. Vaughn.

I urge allergy sufferers to take the first, most important step and call the Alamo Asthma & Allergy clinic.

The Best Allergists In SAN ANTONIO

I would first like to say that I would not be alive today if it were not for the care of Drs.Michael and Adrianne Vaughn. Both Drs. together saved my life. I have severe allergies and severe asthma, when I moved to South Texas 9 years ago I did not realize that my allergies were that bad. I was recommended to Alamo Asthma & Allergy by a friend. The Drs. first tested me and began treating me for my asthma. I went from having an Asthma attack every other day to once a month. I now get a Xolair shot for my asthma (its like magic). I also get allergy shots. The Drs. Are blessed to have a wonderful careing staff thats been with them for a long time. That tells you something about his practice. I recommend the Drs. to all my friends and family and coworkers. I honestly can not speak highly enough of these Drs & staff. If you or your friends suffer from allergies or asthma don't wait ,call and make an appointment today.
