Texas Allergist & Immunology Specialist – Dr. Baxter
Tired of struggling with the debilitating effects of allergies or asthma, or feeling helpless while a child or family member suffers?
Help is on the way.
Allergies are more common than you might think; in fact, the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology estimates that as many as one in five people have allergies.
Dallas residents trust allergist Barbara Stark Baxter for relief from painful, irritating symptoms. With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Baxter has kept her patients’ allergies under control and helped them enjoy a better quality of life.
Allergies — which are reactions of the immune system to certain substances — manifest themselves in many different forms. Dust, mold, foods and drugs can all trigger symptoms that range from mildly annoying to life-threatening. An allergy can affect the eyes, ears, nose, throat, mouth, lungs, skin, gastrointestinal organs or, more rarely, the entire body.
In many cases, those affected cannot pinpoint the causes of their allergic reactions. Allergists are specially trained to identify the substance(s) causing symptoms and put together a treatment plan to provide relief and prevent future reactions.
