Welcome to our Website

At the American College of Allergy Asthma and Immunology annual meeting in Atlanta last November, I was inducted into the Board of Regents.  Three allergists were chosen nationally for a 3 year term to lead this organization, dedicated to the practicing allergists and their patients.  It is with great appreciation to my mentors, my staff, my colleagues, and my patients that I step up to this national leadership position.

But, most importantly, we continue to dedicate ourselves to our patients with state of the art care that we continue to refine.  My associate, Dr Diane Napoli, has introduced drug desensitization and oral food challenges to our practice, and is at the top of her game after an illustrious 20 year career in the US Air Force, with continuing full commitment to her patients.   

So, for all your allergy, asthma, and immunology healthcare needs, we are here for you, dedicated to the finest quality, evidence based, creative, and cost effective care possible.

My staff and I wish you good health.

And remember, we want you to.... "Breathe Easy"!

"Dr. Bill" Silvers


What's New 

Change in Sky Ridge Clinic Tuesday Shot Hours:  

Effective Tuesday, February 16th, shot hours at Sky Ridge will start and 10:30 a.m. Friday shot hours will remain the same.

We are pleased to introduce Dr. Bruce S. Dobozin.  We welcomed him to our practice in October.

Dr. Dobozin graduated from Nichols School, SUNY Buffalo and SUNY Stony Brook Medical School.  He completed his residency in Internal Medicine at the Mount Sinai Hospital of New York and then a fellowship in Allergy and Immunology at the National Jewish Hospital/National Asthma Center (now known as National Jewish Health) in Denver.

For 25 years he maintained private practices in Manhattan and Woodstock, which were the New York City affiliates of National Jewish Heath.  He was on staff at NYU Langone Medical Center, taught at NYU School of Medicine, and attended the Allergy/Immunology clinic at Bellevue Hospital. 

Dr. Dobozin and his wife, Devorah Sperber, an internatlonally known artist, resided in Manhattan and Woodstock for many years.  Allergy Asthma Colorado, P.C. is happy that their recent move to Boulder, to be near family, allows him to work with us.  As a side note, the sculputre of the "Skiers Nose" that resides in our reception area is one Devorah's first works of art.

Dr. Dobozin co-authored "Allergies", now in its 3rd edition.  Dr. Dobozin and Dr. Young wrote the book primarily to help educate allergy patients.  Their book "provides a context for understanding and assessing the vast amount of new medical information that is now just a mouse click away".

Auvi-Q Recall.   The manufacturer of Auvi-Q, Sanofi US, has issued a voluntary nationwide recall of all Auvi-Q due to potential inaccurate dosage delivery.

This recall involves all Auvi-Q currently on the market in both strengths. Customers with questions regarding this recall are asked to go to www.Auvi-Q.com and call 1-877-319-8963 or 1-866-726-6340 8:a.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET, seven days a week for information on how to return their Auvi-Q devices.  Sanofi US will reimburse out of pocket costs incurred for the purchase of new epinephrine auto-injectors with proof of purchase. 

Patients need to immediately call their health care provider for a prescription for an alternate epinephrine auto-injector.  In the event of a life-threatening allergic reaction know as anaphylaxis, patients should only use the Auvi-Q if no other epinephrine auto-injector is available, and then call 911 or local medical emergency services.

News You Can Use

The 2015-2016 Influenza Season is here.

Flu shots are now available in our offices.  Please protect yourself from this disease by getting the vaccine.

Flu viruses change constantly making flu seasons unpredictable . While this time of year is recognized as "flu season", the timing, severity, and span of the season is different from one year to the next. Most flu activity is between October and May, with it peaking between December and February.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older.  This is the most important step in protecting against the flu.

People with asthma are at a much higher risk of complications with the flu.  They aren't any more likely to get the flu, but if they do, the flu can be much more serious. 




How Can We Help You?

  Nasal/Environmental Allergies
Nasal allergies may also be referred to as hay fever or allergic rhinitis.  This is an allergic reaction to elements in the environment, such as tree, grass and weed pollens, pet dander, molds and cockroaches. Individuals that are allergic to pollens may only be symptomatic  at certain times of the year.  People allergic to indoor allergens, such as mold, may experience symptoms all the time.  Click here to read more.
Asthma is a chronic lung disease in which the lining of the airways becomes inflamed and swollen and muscle spasms restrict the flow of air to the lungs.  It is a relatively common condition and the incidence of the disease has grown in recent years.   Currently, it is estimated that close to 15 million Americans have asthma.   Children account for a significant
portion of asthmatics.  Asthmatic and allergic disorders rank at the top of childhood diseases. Click here to read more.
  Animal Allergies  
Pets can cause problems to allergic patients in several ways. Their dander, or skin flakes, as well as their saliva and urine, can cause an allergic reaction. The animal hair is not considered to be an allergen as many people believe. However, the hair or fur can collect pollen, dust, mold and other allergens which can cause additional allergic reactions. Click here to read more.
