ASHEVILLE, N.C., Nov. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This year marks the 25th Anniversary celebration of Allergy Partners, P.A. Originally founded by Drs. Spencer Atwater and David Brown, Allergy Partners, P.A. has become the nation’s largest allergy, asthma and immunology practice. Owned by physicians, led by physicians, their network of 56 primary practice locations spans 23 states and encompasses over 132 total locations of care. Allergy Partners currently employs 132 full- and part-time allergists and immunologists, 27 mid-level providers and over 1,000 practice employees.
In 1977, J. Spencer Atwater, Jr., M.D. made the decision to establish his medical practice in Asheville, North Carolina, specializing in the practice of allergy, asthma, and immunology. Dr. Atwater, who is board certified in both pediatrics and allergy and immunology, developed an outstanding reputation throughout the region for delivering high quality professional medical care. In 1987, David A. Brown, M.D. joined the practice to help fill the area's growing need for high quality medical care. Dr. Brown, who is also board certified in both pediatrics and allergy and immunology, proved to be a great addition to the practice providing the additional medical resources needed to further expand the practice into neighboring communities in Western North Carolina.
Accordingly, satellite offices were established in the towns of Brevard, Hendersonville, Marion, and Clyde, North Carolina. With the addition of Donald W. Russell, M.D. to the practice in 1991, the group was well positioned to meet the ever growing demand for services. Also in 1991, they acquired the practice of another area allergist servicing the communities of Morganton and Rutherfordton, North Carolina and Spartanburg, South Carolina. Over time, additional physicians were added to the practice to help service these outlying areas. By this time, the group had full-time, primary office locations in both Asheville, North Carolina and Spartanburg, South Carolina and community offices in six other North Carolina towns and communities. The foundation was set for the development of a much broader network of allergy, asthma and immunology specialty offices.
In the years that followed, it became evident to both Drs. Atwater and Brown that their multi-site practice offered many benefits in terms of serving a broader patient population and in realizing the benefits of scale economies available only to larger medical practices. In 1994, they formulated a more aggressive growth strategy and became the Allergy Partners, P.A. that we know today.
As Allergy Partners’ reputation continues to grow, the group remains committed to their vision and to bringing only the best physicians and practices into their care network.
