Charleston Allergy and Asthma Expands Medical Team



CHARLESTON, S.C.– Charleston Allergy and Asthma, an allergy and immunology office with three Charleston-area locations, has hired two new doctors – Dr. Meredith L. Moore and Dr. Carolyn R. Word. Both doctors are currently accepting new patients. Moore is board certified in pediatrics, allergy, asthma and immunology for both adults and children. She received her undergraduate degree from the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo. Moore attended the University of South Carolina Medical School where she completed her residency and spent six years as a general pediatrician in the Air Force. Moore received training in allergy, asthma and immunology at Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.


Word is board eligible and received both her undergraduate degree and medical degree from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. She completed her residency at the Medical University of South Carolina and traveled back to Virginia to complete her allergy and immunology fellowship. Originally from Knoxville, Tenn., Word recently relocated back to Charleston to join the Charleston Allergy and Asthma medical team.


“We are excited to have both Dr. Moore and Dr. Word join our team,” says Dr. Bruce Ball of Charleston Allergy and Asthma. “We consider ourselves one big family and these two doctors are a perfect fit for our practice and medical family.”
