Great Lakes Allergy & Asthma Center

Our Goal
Peter M. Ranta, M.D., Board Certified Allergist, is a Pediatric and Adult Allergy and Asthma Specialist in Northern Michigan. Dr. Ranta’s goal is for his patients to feel 100% through environmental control measures, appropriate medications, and natural therapy by way of allergy shots. Our goal is for kids and adults to participate in sports without any limitations and to not miss school or work due to their allergies or their asthma. Dr. Ranta believes in using medications, when needed, and finding the lowest and safest dose for each individual patient.

Our Office
Our office is designed with an inviting waiting room equipped with an area for kids to play. We have ample parking next to our state-of-the-art building, which was designed for our patient convenience by Elaine Keiser, architect. Our clinic strives for simple elegance with old fashioned wooden chair rails, window, and door trim. Our office features original oil paintings by Michelle Ranta, Dr. Ranta’s sister, including historic paintings from the 1857 era, titled “Upper Entrance, Sault Ste. Marie Canal” (the original Soo Locks) and “Principal Street in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.” We also display naive original oil paintings by Konstantin Rodko, a Latvian American artist. Our office also features original water color paintings by Heidi Ahonen, an artist from Keuruu, Finland.
