1     Arnold loved animals. However, one kind of animal constantly made him sneeze and get watery eyes - dogs. The symptoms had gotten so bad that he was going for special testing by a very special doctor - an allergist. He was hoping the allergist could help him prevent those symptoms.
2     Martha had experienced hay fever since her late teens. Usually her over-the-counter medicines helped to relieve those symptoms, but not anymore. The symptoms were lasting for longer and longer periods of time and were getting worse. She was hoping an allergist would provide her with a stronger prescription to make her feel better.
3     Christopher is an eight-year old who suffers from asthma. He is working with an allergist to understand the triggers and to find the right medicine to help the wheezing and tightness in his chest.
