Over the years, RAMC has grown to a staff of 9 members while continuing to offer the same caring, dedicated service to patients. RAMC will treat both children and adults.
"RAMC is 9 years old this September and we just want to say "Thank You" to all of our loyal patients we have had the opportunity to serve. We'd like to take this opportunity to express our immense gratitude to our allergy/immunology and asthma patients for entrusting us with their health and the health of their families and friends. Our vision is to be the best Los Angeles County allergy clinic for patient-focused, quality-proven immunotherapy care," said Dr. Ziegner.
Dr. Ziegner is double-board-certified in Allergy/Immunology and Pediatrics, and she treats patients of all ages.

Our diagnostic procedures involve prick and patch skin testing to determine precise allergic reactions. The number of patients we see with food allergies has risen dramatically in recent years." -Jon Hokanson, CFO
