Chattanooga Allergy Clinic
Living Life to the Fullest
As a sufferer of severe allergies and asthma as a child, Dr. Marc Cromie knows better than most the struggles his patients go through. It’s part of why he joined Chattanooga Allergy Clinic (CAC) in 2000 and why now, 22 years later, he’s still passionate about his profession. “At CAC, our mission is to help everyone ‘live life to the fullest,’” Dr. Cromie shares. “With over 40 years of experience, our team of specialists has collectively cared for over 100,000 patients.” Despite a successful career, Dr. Cromie believes his greatest accolade comes from the positive experiences of his patients. “It means the most when family and friends meet a patient of mine, and the patient shares with them how great their experience was and how much my staff and I were able to help them,” he explains.

1. What do you love most about your profession?
The thing that I love most about providing care for our community is seeing positive change in a patient’s health and altering the course of allergic disease.
2. What is your best advice for patients?
My advice for patients is to always be honest and aggressive with their healthcare needs. Don’t wait to seek help, start early, and if you’re not happy with your doctor, find someone you feel comfortable talking to and with whom you like interacting.
3. How does your staff enhance your practice?
The staff at Chattanooga Allergy Clinic is the secret to our success. They are extremely welcoming, approachable, and always go the extra mile to make every patient’s visit as successful as possible.
4. Why have you chosen this field of specialty?
I chose to become an allergist because I loved my childhood allergist; I wanted to be just like him. Dr. Scott Carol from the Atlanta Allergy Clinic was a very kind and gracious man who was always happy.
5. What is your philosophy when it comes to the care of your patients?
My philosophy when it comes to caring for patients is “always do the right thing, and the patient always comes first.”
