In brief: Usually late teens
Or until they become comfortable and established with an "adult" doc.
I see kids when they go off to college as it is a period of transition and i want to make sure they are controlled and they have someone that is familiar with them as they go off to school and transition.

One of the unique things about allergists is that they are trained to treat children & adults.
In that regard allergists are like family practitioners. Allergists are also well-trained in the assessment & management of asthma. So when allergists treat your asthma you can stay with them until they retire...And allergists rarely retire.

In brief: Depends
I will generally see established patients in my practice through college before transitioning them to the adult doctor. But this is likely doctor dependent.
