Patricia Gomez Dinger, DO, is a board-certified allergist with her own private practice – Advanced Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Center PA - Dr. Patricia Gomez Dinger – in the Stone Oak area of San Antonio and Schertz, Texas.
She is a native Texan who completed her undergraduate training at The University of Texas at Austin. She attended medical school at New York College of Osteopathic Medicine in Long Island, New York. She chose a career path toward allergy by first completing a three-year internal medicine residency at The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. While a resident, she received several awards for her research on the effects of beta-blockers on patients with asthma and COPD. During this time, she also presented on the national level a new subclass of atypical acquired cold urticaria. Having several family members who suffered from allergies, Dr. Gomez Dinger was drawn to further study the specialty of allergy and immunology. She went on to complete a two-year subspecialty fellowship in the field of allergy and immunology at Kaiser Permanente Southern California Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. In 2008, Dr. Gomez Dinger’s research on the relationship of long-acting beta-agonists to asthma morbidity and mortality was selected as a featured poster for presentation at the National Meeting of the American Academy of Asthma, Allergy, & Immunology.
Upon completion of fellowship training, Dr. Gomez Dinger returned to San Antonio with her family and, in 2010, started the Advanced Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Center. Dr. Dinger is a member of the Texas Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Society; San Antonio Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Society; Bexar County Medical Society; American College of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology; American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology; and the Joint Council of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology. Dr. Gomez Dinger enjoys keeping up to date on the latest medical advancements in her field and sharing them with the community, taking part in numerous speaking engagements and volunteer opportunities. In 2015, Dr. Gomez Dinger made history by being the first allergist in San Antonio to offer food oral immunotherapy. One of the biggest rewards over the last 13 years of private practice has been her work in food allergies. She has helped over 100 children with life-threatening peanut allergies get their lives back through peanut oral immunotherapy. Dr Gomez Dinger has earned the title of Super Doctor in the field of Allergy and Asthma every year since 2015.
When she is not working with her patients, she enjoys spending time with her family and can sometimes be found at one of her two favorite places: the beach or in the mountains.
