Our staff at North Texas Allergy & Asthma Associates excel at providing you and your family with personalized and excellent health care. Our emphasis involves intertwining education, medication and proven medical modalities to take care of your allergic disorders. We specialize in the treatment of nasal allergies, asthma, eye allergy, sinus disease, and allergic skin disorders.
North Texas Allergy & Asthma Associates was founded by Dr. Harvey Black in 1927. Dr. Black spent many years studying the causes of allergies and over time developed a test for allergy. He was a President of the American Society of Clinical Pathology, and 1945 coauthored the textbook "Practice of Allergy" and was truly a pioneer in his time.
In 1950 James Holman, M.D. joined the practice and took over after the death of Dr. Black. While building his allergy practice, Dr. Holman served as an associate professor of pharmacology at Southwestern Medical School in Dallas and served as head of the Parkland Allergy Clinic from 1951 to 1980. Dr. Holman was eminently qualified for this role, for he had studied at Southwestern under Dr. Tinsley Harrison and at the University of Virginia. Dr. Holman has written many articles and papers on allergy and immunology, and was instrumental in the development of various novel therapeutic treatment options during that time.
Dr. Holman grew North Texas Allergy & Asthma Associates (at that time - under the name Holman Allergy Clinic) into one of the foremost allergy practices in the Southwest, with patients referred from all over the region. Currently, North Texas Allergy & Asthma Associates is one of the oldest practicing allergy practices today. Dr. Black opened his practice in 1927 at the Medical Arts building, located in downtown Dallas near Baylor Medical College. In 1974, Dr. Holman moved the clinic to one of its current location at Texas Health Resources Dallas. Dr. Holman is proud and honored to say that he still has patients that have been with him for over fifty years and that he was one of the first physician practices to open their doors at Texas Health Resources Dallas.
Our providers continue to carry forward the pioneering tradition of Drs. Holman and Black, meshing together new age technology and training with the proven techniques of the past. Recently, the center has gone through substantial renovation, expansion, and modernization. Currently we are proud providers of health care at two premier locations in North Texas: Texas Health Resources Dallas Hospital and Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano.
