Dr. Nathan has an unwavering commitment to his patients. “First and foremost, I try to treat all my patients in the same manner that I would want my family treated.

In return, it is my obligation to explain what role allergies are playing in their symptoms, and how best to deal with them.”

He is currently the Secretary/Treasurer of the Colorado Allergy Asthma Society. His interests in the medical field range from the joy of clinical practice and taking care of patients to the challenges and academic rigor associated with research.

In the clinic he takes care of adults and children. He helps diagnose and treat asthma, exercise-induced asthma and other respiratory problems, environmental and food allergies, skin disorders, and immunologic diseases. He enjoys helping people with the ordinary as well as rare and complicated diseases. His clinic has become a good place for people who have not been able to find answers at other offices.
Research has always been an interest for him. He has been a primary investigator for studies of asthma, allergy and Hereditary Angioedema. He has also studied treatments for COPD and migraine and participates in many national Advisory Boards.
Dr. Soteres’ volunteer accomplishments include: founding a support group for families of kids with severe food allergy called MOSAIC (Mothers of Severely Allergic Infants and Children), organizing a local journal club for allergy doctors in the region, mentoring medical and physician assistant students, and participating in the D20 physician advisory board.

Dr. Luke Webb M.D. moved to Colorado in 2010 where he practiced pediatric and adult allergy and immunology at Evans Army Community Hospital until he joined Asthma and Allergy Associates of Colorado Springs in 2012.
During his fellowship training at Walter Reed, his research focused on pediatric and adult asthma, urticaria (hives), and special vaccine considerations in young children with food allergies. He has also published articles and book chapters in anaphylaxis (severe allergic reactions), asthma, juvenile systemic sclerosis and autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome, also known as ALPS. This last area of interest came from his patient experiences at the National Institutes of Health in Washington, D.C.
While in medical school, he was awarded as a Canon Scholar, chosen by his peers and instructors for compassion, patient care and scholarship. He says that the most rewarding aspect of allergy and immunology is the opportunity to see patients ranging from newborns to geriatrics. “This allows me to take care of each generation of the family, often seeing parents and children from the same family for allergic or immune system issues.”
