Dr. Praveen Buddiga, M.D., Fellow of the American Academy of Allergy and Immunology (FAAAAI) founded BUDDIGA Family Allergy | Skin | Immunology (formerly BUDDIGA Family Allergy Asthma Clinic) in 2016 to provide families with life-changing, leading-edge diagnostic evaluation and early treatment for those who suffer from allergies, asthma, eczema, and other immunological conditions. In 2021, Dr. Buddiga launched a new division to his practice, BUDDIGA Skin Aesthetics, which allows the chief medical expert, immunology clinician and scientist to treat the largest and most active organ of the immune system: the skin.
By incorporating a revolutionary line of skin immunology services and best-in-class treatments to enrich, nourish and maintain the SkinImmune™ Firewall, the external immune barrier of healthy skin, Dr. Buddiga provides another facet of his holistic, science-based and comprehensive approach to resolving immune symptoms as well as strengthening the existing skin barrier for his patients. A passionate researcher and perpetual student of immunology, the launch of this division is one more example of how Dr. Buddiga stays at the cutting edge of immunological research and education, remaining dedicated to providing early, accurate diagnosis and treatments that optimize the overall immunological health of his patients, inside and out.
Dr. Buddiga remains dedicated to treating the cause beneath the physical manifestations of skin inflammation and aging, but understands that patients who have suffered from immunological conditions for years can feel insecure about the appearance of their skin. Allergies and other immunological conditions can cause signs of inflammation and damage to the skin, like eczema, which impacts its ability to perform as a healthy, exterior barrier to a patient’s immune system. Dr. Buddiga spent over two years putting his decades of experience as a leading immunology expert to work developing a line of skin immunology services and treatments to provide for his patients in his clinic, under his experienced guidance. Just as in his allergy and asthma consultations, Dr. Buddiga’s in-depth client consultations consider a patient’s full medical history and provides a specific, customized treatment plan for skin immunology and aesthetic treatments. By providing unparalleled treatments, technologies like Opus Plasma Skin Resurfacing Fractional Plasma and minimally invasive procedures like facial rejuvenation as well as body sculpting by the latest FDA approved advanced technology, CoolSculpting™, in his caring clinical setting, Dr. Buddiga is reversing the external appearance of immunological conditions for patients, strengthening their confidence and improving their quality of life as well as self-esteem.
“I want to provide excellent longevity to skincare and anti-aging issues by utilizing my scientific background and medical approach. It’s care beyond just beauty.” – Dr. Buddiga
There’s a deeply personal reason that Dr. Buddiga was drawn to immunology. During his residency, as he was considering fellowships, his infant daughter developed skin allergies. As he applied his medical training to researching her treatments, he came to see the opportunity for immunological treatments to bring lasting relief to allergy sufferers who may otherwise accept their conditions as a life sentence. With 60-70% of the population suffering from allergies, and ⅓ of those cases being pediatric, Dr. Buddiga knew he could make a difference in the lives of the 60 million or more Americans who suffer from these conditions.
“My job is to stop the allergic march.” – Dr. Buddiga
Dr. Buddiga’s extensive training with top immunologists, as well as his research and teaching as a leading immunological practitioner, has caused him to see the conditions that allergy, asthma, and immunological patients suffer from as a progression from a root cause. His approach combines early diagnostics and evidence-based immunological treatments with a genuinely caring bedside manner. A teacher at heart, Dr. Buddiga’s passion lies in explaining highly complex conditions to families in a simple way and presenting them with a clear, comprehensive treatment plan to move forward towards relief.
“Early intervention and accurate diagnosis is the key to living a healthy, fulfilling life.” – Dr. Buddiga
This passion is what drives Dr. Buddiga’s relentless approach to research and innovation in the world of immunological medicine. From the latest research to genetic testing tools like 23andMe, Dr. Buddiga actively pursues modern, evidence-based technologies and treatment solutions to provide the best possible care to his patients.
In addition to his private practice, BUDDIGA Family Allergy | Skin | Immunology, Dr. Buddiga is an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California – San Francisco, UCSF-Fresno. He is board-certified by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology, a conjoint Board of The American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics, and has trained and clinically rotated at some of the world’s best programs in Allergy, Immunology, and Medicine under leading doctors on the forefront of these specialties.
“I am sometimes the 4th or 5th doctor a patient has been referred to as their condition has worsened. I feel a deep responsibility to ensure that they are correctly diagnosed, that they understand their diagnosis, as well as the plan for how we can improve their quality of life.” – Dr. Buddiga
“Daily headaches, sinus infections, heavy breathing — people adapt to these symptoms over time and don’t see the gravity of the situation. The patients who come in for treatment begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel, the hope of a life that isn’t tormented by these daily symptoms.” – Dr. Buddiga
Many allergy sufferers do not realize their life could be different with accurate diagnosis and a comprehensive treatment plan based on the latest science and research in allergy, asthma, and skin immunology. Dr. Buddiga’s practice is built on the belief that with an accurate diagnosis, early intervention, and evidence-based, modern immunological medicine, there can be lasting relief for allergy, asthma, and chronic allergic skin condition sufferers.
