Patient Experience with Dr. Geller
Get to know Allergist and Immunologist Dr. Bernard D. Geller, who serves patients in Santa Monica, California.
Allergies and asthma are nuisances, yet common health conditions that affect millions of adults and children in the United States each year. Patients suffering from allergies can turn to board-certified allergist and immunologist, Dr. Geller, at Allergy & Clinical Immunology Medical Group in Santa Monica, California, for symptom relief.
As the founder of the practice, he and his team help patients reduce or eliminate allergy and asthma symptoms using the most advanced, innovative techniques. They test for hundreds of different allergies in adults and children of all ages and do whatever is necessary for long-lasting relief. Allergy drops, allergy shots or immunotherapy, sprays, inhalers, and lifestyle changes are a few of the treatment options offered.
Consistently ranked as one of the top doctors in the United States by his patients and peers, Dr. Geller began his medical education at the State University of New York Downstate Health Sciences University in Brooklyn, New York. While there, he received his Doctorate degree in Immunology in 1967 and his medical degree in 1968. He then went on to complete his one-year residency in pediatrics at NewYork-Presbyterian – Weill Cornell Medical Center in Manhattan, New York.
Next, he obtained a staff associate position at the National Institutes of Health – Division of Biologics Standards, where he completed research in allergenic extracts and vaccinations, including pertussis, or whooping cough. Passionate about bringing his experience in research to patients, he returned to pediatric care for two years at Los Angeles County – University of Southern California (USC) Medical Center in Los Angeles. Thereafter, he joined the Department of Allergy and Immunology at USC as a Fellow.
Maintaining his advanced credentials to stay abreast of the latest advances in allergy and asthma medicine, Dr. Geller is a Fellow of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, a Fellow of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
