Christina D. Schwindt, M.D., FAAAAI

“Asthma and allergies significantly impact the lives of those who suffer from them. Yet, with the right treatment, they can live healthy, active lives. I went into this field to make a difference in the lives of those who suffer from these disorders. The considerable impairment of these diseases to health and quality of life should not be discounted – and the expertise of an allergist can make all the difference.

“My dedication to improving patient care includes understanding the environmental factors that influence asthma and allergies. I am the Principal Investigator on many research projects, including from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) and have published in numerous scientific journals.

“I am very understanding and patient. I recognize the importance of treating the person, not just the disease. People need to feel comfortable enough with their treatment plan and their physician to ask questions. The more a patient understands about their care, the happier and healthier they will be.”

 

What's New

Allergy and Asthma Associates has established the Food Allergy Center, the first and only one of its kind in Orange County, to focus exclusively on the diagnosis and now treatment of food allergy. We are now offering oral immunotherapy. The purpose of oral immunotherapy (OIT) is to decrease your sensitivity to allergy-causing foods, so that exposure to the offending food (peanut, milk, egg, tree nuts etc.) will result in fewer and less severe symptoms in the event of an accidental exposure.

What Our Patients Say About Us

  • I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t do anything that I wanted to do, let alone go out and do anything athletic with my children or for myself. Then I met Dr Berger. He changed my life – he put in the time, the effort and the extra research to get me the diagnosis and the correct medications that changed my life forever!... - Linda

  • When I first got diagnosed with asthma it started off as exercised induced but throughout the years it became worse than that. Just a wind would make me feel like I needed to take my inhaler, a change in the weather and I had to take a breathing treatment. It was really hard especially for being an athlete, because you don’t want anything holding you back from what you love to do...
