Get to know Allergist and Immunologist Dr. Christina Schwindt, who serves patients throughout the State of California. 

Being a board-certified allergist and immunologist, Dr. Schwindt’s expertise includes the diagnosis and treatment of asthma, environmental and food allergies, eczema, as well as primary immunodeficiencies. She sees pediatric and adult patients for her specialty at Hoag Health Center – Newport Beach in California, which is a part of Hoag Medical Group.

“I love interacting with my patients and empowering them with knowledge and medical care options to create the best care plan for them,” expressed Dr. Schwindt. Her approach to care is comprehensive with a focus on patient education, so that together they can create the best plan that will work for each patient.

In her current capacity, she can also be found on staff at CHOC Children’s & CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital. Affiliated with the University of California, Irvine, the regional pediatric healthcare network includes a state-of-the-art 334-bed main hospital facility in the City of Orange, and a hospital-within-a-hospital in Mission Viejo. 

Having always wanted to become a physician to help others, Dr. Schwindt’s acclaimed career in medicine began after she earned her medical degree from the  St. Louis University School of Medicine. Upon graduation, she went on to complete her internship, residency, and fellowship training at the St. Louis University Group of Hospitals. 

Since then, she has also been involved with many research projects that focused on understanding the environmental factors that may influence the increase in asthma. “Having allergies can seriously impact the quality of life for patients, from having nasal allergies that make you feel like you have a cold every day to life-threatening food allergies. Controlling and managing these disease states can significantly improve health, well-being, and how one lives their life” explained Dr. Schwindt.

A Fellow of the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology (FAAAAI) and a Fellow of the American College of Asthma, Allergy & Immunology (FACAAI), she is board-certified by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology (ABAI). The ABAI establishes qualifications and examines physicians to become recognized specialists in allergy and immunology. It is a conjoint board of the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics.

Furthermore, the doctor is board-certified in pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics, an independent and nonprofit organization that serves as one of the 24 certifying boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties. 

For well over two decades, Dr. Schwindt has been practicing allergy and immunology medicine with a diverse background in clinical medicine, academic research, and medical missionary work. She is the principal investigator on many research projects, including from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), and the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). She has developed an asthma clinic in St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the West Indies and volunteers her time performing medical missions to the island.

The field of allergy and immunology involves the management of disorders related to the immune system. These conditions range from the very common to the very rare, spanning all ages and encompassing various organ systems. An allergist and immunologist is a physician specially trained to diagnose, treat, and manage allergies, asthma, and immunologic disorders, including primary immunodeficiency.
