Dr. Erin Klaffky

Klaffky chose the field of Allergy and Immunology because she is drawn to the analytical aspect of this rapidly growing specialty.

“I became a doctor because I like to solve problems,” she explained. “I consider myself a lifelong learner. I enjoy constantly staying up to date on the latest innovations and research in the Allergy and Immunology field.”

Klaffky attended the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wis., for her undergraduate degree. She earned her Ph.D. in Cell Biology at the University of Virginia, in Charlottesville, Va., and then completed medical school at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Va. She then returned to the University of Virginia, where she completed her residency in pediatrics and her fellowship in Allergy and Immunology.

“We are very excited to welcome Dr. Klaffky to PHC Allergy and Immunology office in both Mooresville and Statesville,” Lichtenberger said. “Dr. Klaffky is highly skilled and trained in all aspects of allergy and immunology and will be a wonderful addition to our team. Gaining her to our group will allow us to expand our presence in the area to better serve our patients.” 

When Klaffky is not with her two golden retrievers, Tucker and Abby, you can find her on her bike in the Appalachian Mountains, Oregon, or even Europe.


Dr. Klaffky is now accepting new patients at Piedmont HealthCare Allergy and Immunology in both Statesville and Mooresville.
