Thomas Chacko, MD

Atlanta, Cumming, Roswell

Dr. Thomas Chacko takes pride in providing outstanding care and individual attention to his patients. Established in 2007, his practice has become one of the busiest allergy practices in Atlanta; its goal is to treat every patient like family. This philosophy has earned Dr. Chacko numerous accolades: He has served as an expert consultant for CNN, Fox News, Web MD, Al Jazeera, and he has been named one of Atlanta’s “Top Doctors” for the past five years. He lectures locally and nationally on asthma, allergies, food allergies, and anaphylaxis.

Dr. Chacko has a special interest in various forms of allergy desensitization, including allergy immunotherapy, or allergy shots. He offers Rush immunotherapy, a faster way to go through allergy shots. Dr. Chacko also offers sublingual immunotherapy or SLIT, which desensitizes allergies using drops or tablets under the tongue.

It is not uncommon for patients to travel more than two or three hours to see Dr. Chacko. He collaborates with surgical colleagues to offer the best medical and surgical care for complicated sinus disease and asthma. He is also one of only a few allergists in the state offering food allergy desensitization, which retrains the immune system to tolerate food proteins/allergens. Dr. Chacko has numerous patients tolerating five to 10 peanuts a day. He has had similar results with milk, egg, sesame, and various treenuts.
