Dr. Nkiruka Erekosima, MD, MPH

Allergist, Immunologist

Professional statement

“As a physician, my compelling interest in immunology led me to specialize in Allergy and Immunology – a field of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of allergies, asthma, and other disorders of the immune system. After completing my residency at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, I was blessed with the opportunity to have my Allergy and Immunology training at National Jewish Health in Denver, Colorado – the leading respiratory hospital in the US, where I provided care for patients from all over the US and the world. My co-founder and I met while working at the Johns Hopkins Asthma and Allergy Center in the Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. We both had the privilege and unique experience of caring for patients who were referred to an academic/tertiary care center, where we had access to a broader range of services than that provided at most community allergy clinics. We indeed shared a similar vision whereby we wanted to bring the expertise and resources available in an academic medical center to the community practice setting. We decided to pursue this vision together. We discovered that there was a need in the North Montgomery County / Silver Spring area for the type of medical clinic that we envisioned and set out to create it. We have now established an allergy clinic in Silver Spring, MD that serves patients of all ages (children and adults), and is open 5 days a week. We participate in most insurance plans including medicaid and medicare. We are here to serve you, and are committed to providing the best care to you and your family.”
