My name is Hal Jenkins, an Allergist/ Immunologist treating families in the Western North Carolina region. Originally planning to be a Pediatrician, I became passionate about allergies and asthma during my residency, recognizing the significant increases in quality of life for children and adults who receive specialized care to manage their symptoms. While allergies and asthma can be debilitating for patients and worrisome for families, the rewards of careful medical management and treatment are extremely positive for all involved. I completed, my Allergy & Immunology fellowship at National Jewish Medical Center, in Denver, Colorado. Those extra years of training allowed me to learn from global experts in our subspecialty and furthered my passion to provide the most optimal care for those children who develop allergies, asthma, and eczema, as well as, for the significant number of adults who continue to suffer with those same conditions. My approach involves spending time with families to learn about the individual problems, and then to educate them. This teamwork allows us to maximize outcomes while minimizing worries associated with the treatments and the diseases themselves. On a more personal note, I am equally committed to spending time with my wife, Merry, and our two children, Peyton and Samuel. We enjoy traveling and many outdoor activities in our beautiful part of the world. In the end, I want the same for my patients, to overcome the limitations brought on by these conditions and to be able to live their life to the fullest.
