Since returning to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio, to found Premier Allergy, Dr. Summit Shah has assisted countless patients address the wide range of difficulties associated with issues relating to allergy and asthma. Dr. Shah was inspired to pursue a career as an allergist after experiencing asthma- and allergy-related conditions of his own throughout his youth growing up in the Central Ohio region.
Dr. Shah remained close to home while completing his academic studies at The Ohio State University, first attending the school as an undergraduate before earning acceptance to The Ohio State University College of Medicine. With his medical degree complete, Dr. Shah left the Central Ohio region for the Northeast, where he completed his residency in internal medicine at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts. Following his residency at Tufts University, Dr. Shah was granted a fellowship opportunity in Southern California at the Scripps Institute and the University of California, San Diego.
Throughout his academic career — whether it was at The Ohio State University, Tufts University, the University of California, San Diego, or the Scripps Institute — Dr. Shah was able to work alongside some of the most prominent allergy and asthma experts working in the field. Dr. Shah took steps to take full advantage of the unique opportunity to learn from such knowledgeable and innovative professionals, and, judging by Dr. Shah’s own accomplishments since completing his medical degree, residency, and fellowship, it is quite clear the expert allergist succeeded in making the most of these truly rare opportunities.
Applying the insight and expertise gained while working alongside so many vaunted allergy and asthma experts from all over the country, Dr. Shah founded Premier Allergy with the goal of providing Central Ohioans access to the most advanced treatment methodologies designed for addressing allergy- and asthma-related conditions. Of course, Dr. Shah’s contributions to the local community — and indeed the medical community at large — are not limited to his work as Premier Allergy’s owner and allergist.
Despite the substantial demands on his time, Dr. Shah is dedicated to pursuing potential breakthroughs in allergy and asthma treatment methodologies through an ongoing commitment to clinical research. In his role as a professor at The Ohio State University College of Medicine, Dr. Shah remains devoted to working with the next generation of doctors as they prepare for a rewarding career in the medical profession. As if these responsibilities are not enough, Dr. Shah continues to be closely involved in a number of additional pursuits and is also responsible for founding the Chalmers P. Wylie Veterans Outpatient Center’s Allergy Department.
While Dr. Summit Shah has always been serious about his work as an allergist as well as his role as a professor, medical advisor, and clinical researcher, the founder of Premier Allergy is first and foremost a devoted husband and father. The doctor and Central Ohio native is proud that he and his wife are able to raise their family in the very same Columbus, Ohio, community that played such a central role in Dr. Shah’s ability to achieve so much throughout the entirety of his career in the medical field.
