As a Clinical Allergy Specialist

As a Clinical Allergy Specialist, I have gained phenomenal experience that I believe will make me a stronger medical school applicant. Before joining the company, I worked as a medical scribe in several different specialties, but the hands-on experience and valuable interactions as a CAS remain unmatched. Working directly with patients, multiple providers, as well as fellow CAS, has allowed me to view medicine from a vast number of perspectives and understand that no two patients nor providers are alike. In addition to my clinical experience, the GAP year program at UAS provides tools to strength your application for profession schools. The reimbursement program has been my best friend, as I can invest in myself with quality study materials and not worry about being able to afford it. I have truly enjoyed my time here at UAS, and I am very excited and confident about applying to medical school this spring.

Working for UAS in the Gap Year Program

Working for UAS in the Gap Year Program helped strengthen my medical school primary and secondary applications and gave me the real-world experience needed in my interviews. Through this job, I formed strong and lasting relationships with the providers and medical support staff in my office, gained exposure to a wide range of patients, and furthered my understanding of the medical field through first-hand experiences. Managing my own patient schedule also gave me the flexibility to take time off to attend interview and second look weekends. UAS was supportive at every level in my path to attending medical school, and I am very grateful for the Gap Year Program!

During my time with UAS

During my time with UAS as a Clinical Allergy Specialist, I gained valuable experience that enhanced my journey to medical school. My interactions with patients, healthcare providers, and UAS colleagues allowed me to gain new perspectives on healthcare while improving lives of our patients. As a future physician, I aspire to improve the quality of healthcare by providing patient-focused care to my patients; I truly believe that my role as a CAS allowed me to lay the groundwork for the humane practice of medicine that I hope to carry out in my future career.

Since being with UAS...

Since being with UAS I have seen allergen immunotherapy make such a difference in the lives of many patients. I have watched patients who struggled to play sports because of their allergies become more able to do so! It is amazing to see children more able to do the things they love without their allergies interfering! I am grateful to be able to help give those patients a better quality of life!

I have worked with UAS 8...

I have worked for UAS for almost 8 years now and could not be more grateful for the opportunities I have had to learn, help patients and grown in my own career development! UAS provides such a valuable service to patients suffering with allergies and to physician partners who desire to help their patients live healthy, happy lives. Seeing patients feel better as they actually treat their allergies rather than just mask them with medications, I have had the opportunity to work with some of the most amazing people! The teams are truly like family and so supportive. We make a difference every day in what we do and we do it together and that has been such a wonderful thing to get to be a part of for the last 8 years. No job will be 100% perfect all of the time, but I truly believe UAS is one of the best companies to work for!

I have worked with UAS...

I have worked with UAS for 2 years and it has brought me joy to get multiple positive feedbacks from patients. I see them improve along the way of their treatment. They always feel so happy to see me “uncommon for people to react this way when they know they are receiving a shot”. I have had patients tell me they are so happy because now they can perform the things they love to do without feeling sick. Some will even mention they will follow me wherever I go. Even though I cannot take all my patients with me everywhere I go, it makes me feel good they have trust in me. I have seen it really works its wonders.

I am fairly new...

I am a fairly new CAS to UAS. I started in December 2019. So far, the company has been more than welcoming. The POD that I am apart of is such a tight knit POD and someone is always there when I have a question. My CS is amazing! She has built up my confidence in being a new CAS and I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me! I am also a patient of UAS as well. The CAS that has been overseeing me has been so informative and it is wonderful to be able to relate to my patients on the same level as well. I can share with them my journey and use my experiences to help answer any questions they have and help was any doubts that they have. I am only one month in, but I can already tell that this will be a great tool to help my clinic grow as well!

My name is Ali...

My name is Ali and I work at the front desk of the clinic Jazmin works out of. Every single patient that comes in to see the allergy lab are always looking forward to see Jaz. Patients tend to be so interested in the allergy lab. Also, Jazmin always makes my day so much better.

During my beginnings...

During my new beginnings and knowledge of this team’s services, I have witnessed phenomenal service not only to the patients but other staff as well. Whether it is walking into the office or walking out, I always see happy and satisfied patients. The services provided increase the flow of greater good to all. Thank you and all staff for sharing such compassion to make lives better.

Immunotherapy is helping...

Immunotherapy is helping my patients improve chronic symptoms such as sinus congestion, frequent colds and URI, coughs, rashes, and headaches. In addition, it limits the overuse of prescribed antibiotics and patients are satisfied with the results.

– Provider, New Jersey

I have noticed...

I have noticed a lot of patients who suffer from allergies have gotten an allergy test and have accepted immunotherapy are extremely happy because they do not suffer with their allergies anymore.

– Provider, Maryland

I have less congestion, sneezing, and sore throats. I only wish I had started immunotherapy treatments sooner! I am very thankful that this is offered at the same location where my primary care physician is located.

– Patient, San Antonio, TX

Although I was a bit worried about starting treatment in the spring. I have been amazed with the results already. And I love getting treatment through my physician’s office where I know everyone and am known!

– Patient, Atlanta, GA

With the allergy treatment, I am a new person – no more feeling bad, clogged head, runny nose, stuffy sinuses. Now I can breathe and get back to my old self!

– Patient, Mountain Head, AR

The CAS has been a dream to work with. I never thought I could administer injections myself, but she made it very simple to learn and made me feel extremely comfortable. I am very glad that I chose to do this treatment.

– Patient, Sulphur, LA

My CAS is very pleasant, personable, very well educated and knowledgeable on allergy information. I have had a very pleasant experience every time I come in for my follow-up appointments. Her positive attitude makes me less nervous about self-injections.

– Patient, Saint Joseph, MO

I was very glad to hear there was a treatment for me and my son to help with our allergies. I was scared at first about giving myself the shot, but with the great training I was able to overcome that fear. Thank you.

– Patient, Saint Joseph, MO

I have tried every medication and was to the point where nothing seemed to work when testing was suggested. I was excited to learn my insurance paid the full cost of testing and treatment.

– Patient, Saint Joseph, MO

I like the process of giving the injections myself. I can tell a difference in my allergy symptoms, especially now that I am on my maintenance vials.

– Patient, Lafayette, LA

This experience has helped me figure out what I’m allergic to and learn how to administer the shots without going to the doctor’s office three times a week.

– Patient, Durham, NC

My experience has been nothing but informative, refreshing and above satisfaction. I feel like my life is changing for the better and with the high success rate, I will finish this therapy and cure my allergies for good. This thought helps me through life as a happier man.

– Patient, Brunswick, GA

The allergy testing helped identify and create a treatment plan, so that I wasn’t just taking medication for general allergies. The CAS was wonderful by explaining the process, results and treatment.

– Patient, Asheville, NC

I had a great experience. The CAS was very pleasant, well organized and knowledgeable of what was going on. She made the whole process go smoothly.

– Patient, Little Rock, AR

The allergy testing process was fast, efficient and easy. I was kept informed every step of the way by the CAS. I was trained and tested on self-administering the immunotherapy and am quite confident that I can maintain the treatment at home. I look forward to seeing the progress and over time improve my quality of life.

– Patient, Dundywood, GA

My son’s experience is just beginning and has been very easy and seamless. We appreciate the personal attention given to us by our CAS.

– Mother of a Patient, Dundywood, GA

My husband and I recently had our two sons tested. The whole testing process was very easy and it was offered in our pediatrician’s office. We think the CAS did a wonderful job explaining the whole process to us. So far, we’ve had an excellent experience.

– Mother of a Patient, Lawrenceville, GA

My son developed asthma (aggravated, if not caused, by allergies) at two and a half years old after we moved to San Antonio, TX. He cried during the day and even more at night because his eyes itched and his nose dripped. After receiving injections for his allergies, he is no longer on inhalers, except during extremely high pollen or poor air quality days and only needs antihistamines on occasion. Thank you so much! My son is so happy and I no longer have to watch him constantly suffer.

– Mother of a Patient, San Antonio, TX

I have had allergy testing in the past, but was told my reactions were not severe enough to warrant treatment. Now that I have been tested again, I am pleased that someone finally understands that my allergy symptoms (which are almost year round) need to be addressed. I am very thankful to my doctor for testing me.

– Patient, Asheville, NC

I am an archaeologist and frequently work outdoors. I can tell a significant difference in how I feel during the height of allergy season. I have less congestion, sneezing, headaches and sore throats. I only wish I started immunotherapy sooner! I am very thankful this is offered at the same location where my primary care physician is located. It is very convenient.

– Patient, Berlin, NJ

Five years ago I would often get sinusitis, bronchitis and pneumonia from my allergies. Since I started my immunotherapy treatment I have not had sinusitis or bronchitis. I am better physically than I’ve been in a long time.

– Patient, Oklahoma City, OK

Immunotherapy treatment has brought back hope to my otherwise hopeless allergy symptoms. I look forward to feeling better!

– Patient, Marlton, NJ


– Patient, Baton Rouge, LA

I have not suffered from an allergy attack in more than a year. Since beginning immunotherapy I’ve been able to play with my dogs and not suffer any adverse effects. It has changed my life! It has freed me from the confines of my home and the need for medications.
