Personal Statement

Dr. Alison Humphrey pursued a career in Allergy/Immunology after experiencing allergies and asthma as a child with marked improvement under the care of an Allergist. She understands that allergic disease can significantly impact a child’s quality of life and that treatment must be personalized for each patient and family. She also believes that patient education and empowerment are key in managing chronic disease.

Prior to moving back home to Texas, Dr. Humphrey practiced Allergy/Immunology outside of Chicago, Illinois, while her husband completed his subspecialty surgical training. She has been practicing in the Austin area since 2016 and is excited to be accepting new patients at the Allergy/Immunology Clinic at Texas Children's Specialty Care Austin.

Dr. Humphrey is board certified by both the American Board of Allergy and Immunology and the American Board of Pediatrics. When she’s away from the office, she enjoys outdoor fitness, live music, playing the fiddle, and spending time with her husband and rescued Catahoula mix, Stella Rose.
