Dr. Smith's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Smith "Raised in a family of six on a farm in Western Kentucky, Dr. C. Steven Smith has a special interest in botany and in keeping animals and the families that love them together by helping those families control their allergies, many of which threaten relationships with their pets. Highly credentialed, he is board-certified in both pediatrics and in adult and pediatric allergy, asthma and immunology. He has a master's degree in microbiology and immunology with research emphasis on the mechanisms of the causes of asthma. Dr. Smith has been inducted as a Fellow in the Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology and the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. He is the founder of AllerSmith Research Labs and is an inventor and developer of drug-free, allergy control products for people who have allergies to pets, insects, mold and indoor plants (including live Christmas trees). His research in environmental allergy control has been ongoing since 1979. Dr. Smith has helped patients with food and skin contact allergies, sinus infections and asthma. He has extensive experience in sports respiratory medicine and currently serves as the team referral physician specialist in asthma and allergy for the University of Louisville Athletic Department. He has been a consulting physician for the Louisville Zoo since 1978, assisting the zoo veterinarians with the care of any exotic animals with allergies and other medical problems. Emphasizing quality over quantity, Accredited Asthma, Allergy & Food Intolerance Center cares for a limited number of patients. Dr. Smith's staff personally answers all calls, listens, and is empathetic to patients' individual needs. His practice is dedicated to fostering personal care and trust. He's willing to learn what can be done to relieve his patients' symptoms. Patients who choose Accredited Asthma, Allergy & Food Intolerance Center can, therefore, expect the very best in every aspect of their allergy care. Accredited Asthma, Allergy & Food Intolerance Center offers extensive evaluations for both food and inhalant allergy illnesses, as well as additional patch skin tests for those patients who require evaluation for skin contact allergy problems. Being the Kentuckiana area's most educated and highly trained individuals in allergy, asthma and immunology, Dr. Smith and his staff are dedicated to recapturing the spirit and foundation of medicine and the patient-physician covenant."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Smith "For over 30 years, board-certified allergist and immunologist, C. Steven Smith, MD and his staff have provided proven relief for allergy and asthma sufferers in the Ohio River Valley. Dr. Smith works with variable combinations of sinus allergy, hay fever, recurrent upper respiratory infections with constant throat drainage, snoring, and headaches.  His approach involves the long-term picture.

In AAAC's practice, common, but overlooked food, bladder, bowel, pet, and unusual skin rash issues are not uncommon to Dr. Smith. The office employs standard allergy evaluating techniques, but prides themselves in customizing allergy tests to diagnose unusual cases when the patient's case history necessitates unique evaluations.

Dr. Smith has developed a line of products to benefit pet allergy sufferers sold nationwide.  Additionally, his patent-pending nasal spray is being used by hundreds of allergy sufferers to control their sinus/allergy miseries with minimal effort, yielding great relief."
