At their 2022 Annual Meeting, Richard Herring, MD was installed as President.  Dr. Herring practices at Carolina Asthma and Allergy Center in their Eastover, Concord and Huntersville locations.

Dr. Herring graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in biology. After 2 years of research at UNC Cystic Fibrosis Center, he decided to go to medical school.

He then completed an adult and pediatric specialty fellowship program in Allergy & Immunology at the UVA Medical Center in Charlottesville, Virginia. Dr. Herring is board certified in both Allergy & Immunology and Internal Medicine.

Dr. Herring first became interested in this field when his wife’s allergies dramatically improved with allergy shots. He truly loves helping patients of all ages lead healthier lives and assisting them in actively changing the course of their allergic disorders. He also enjoys helping children and adults in all areas of his field such as severe nasal & eye allergies, allergic asthma, allergic eczema, as well as food allergy and immune deficiency syndromes.

For fun, Dr. Herring loves spending quality time with his family, being outdoors, and traveling. He has 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls ranging in age from 2 to 11 years old.
