Allergy and Immunology


Allergic / Immunological diseases affect more than 20% of the society and take the first place among chronic diseases. Although the discipline of allergy and immunology diseases is a relatively new branch of science, it is rapidly being developed all over the world. It is estimated that approximately 12 million people in our country have allergic diseases. In contrast, there are very few allergy and immunology doctors in our country.

Ankara City Hospital Allergy and Immunology Clinic is one of the few centers that provide services on immune deficiencies and allergic diseases. Our hospital is organized in such a way that polyclinic services and inpatient follow-up and treatment procedures can be carried out successfully. The clinic currently provides services with 3 outpatient polyclinics, 4 allergy immunology test rooms and outpatient treatment rooms including 1 inpatient ward having the capacity of 10 beds.
