Gary Z. Lotner

Gary Z. Lotner, MD

While formally retired from full time practice, Dr. Lotner will continue to provide quality allergy care for patients intermittently at various locations when the usual physician is out of the office.

Gary Z. Lotner, M.D., received his Bachelor of Science degree from City College of New York. He earned his medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr. Lotner spent five years at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania, first as an intern, then as a Pediatric resident and finally as a Fellow in Allergy and Clinical Immunology. Prior to joining Atlanta Allergy and Asthma Clinic, Dr. Lotner completed his training with a second fellowship at the National Jewish Medical Research Center in Denver, Colorado.

Dr. Lotner is board certified by both the American Board of Pediatrics and the American Board of Allergy and Immunology. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, as well as the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. He is past president of the Georgia Allergy and Immunology Society and a former vice president of Georgia Multi-Specialty Group, a 700-physician organization in Atlanta. Dr. Lotner's main areas of interest are the changing concepts of asthma and potential adverse effects of asthma on the long-term lung function.

Dr. Lotner lives in Sandy Springs with his wife, Sandra Cuttler, a technology attorney. He has two children, Jessica and Daniel, and is a very proud and active grandfather. His son is currently Chief Resident in Medicine at a hospital in Ohio.

Dr. Lotner's outside interests are travel (particularly involving hiking--he has visited 45 countries), golf (which he plays poorly enough to continue to practice medicine), reading, and art. After 35 years with AAAC, he continues to love to practice medicine.
