Division of Pediatric Allergy & Immunology: Overview

The Division of Pediatric Allergy and Immunology is committed to excellence in patient care, education, and advocacy. We specialize in diagnosing and treating the full range of allergic and immune disorders of infancy and childhood, including allergic rhinitis, anaphylaxis, angioedema, animal allergy, asthma, atopic dermatitis, chronic sinusitis, contact dermatitis, eczema, food allergy, hay fever, hives, immunodeficiency disorders, insect sting sensitivity, non-allergic rhinitis, recurrent infections, and urticaria.

Early recognition is of utmost importance as most allergies start during childhood. And an accurate diagnosis is the first step in managing childhood allergy problems. Our pediatric specialist can provide a complete evaluation that includes: allergen skin testing, blood testing, patch testing, immune function testing, lung function testing, and oral food challenges. Following a comprehensive assessment, our allergist will establish an individualized treatment plan with your child's pediatrician. Your child's treatment may include medication, environmental modification, allergen immunotherapy ("allergy shots"), or other therapies.

Being housed with a variety of pediatric subspecialists contributes significantly to our ability to provide comprehensive care.
