As founder of Greater Austin Allergy, Henry Joseph Legere, III is committed to providing the best care for our patients.

Henry Joseph Legere, III, M.D.

Dr. Legere studied chemistry at UC Berkeley, received his MD from Columbia University and completed his fellowship at Harvard Medical School. After his fellowship, he became a clinical instructor at Harvard Medical School and served as a staff physician at Brigham & Women’s Hospital and MIT Medical before starting his clinical practice and research center. His team is known for their progressive approach to treating allergies using advanced protocols for accelerated desensitization timelines as well as utilizing transdermal creams instead of needles for transporting immunotherapy across the skin.

In 2017, Dr. Legere shifted his focus from direct patient care to innovation and research. Occasionally, he can be found in any of our locations, saying “hello” and educating the staff on the latest trends in Allergy.
