Compassionate Allergy Care for the Entire Family
If your child suffers from allergies or other problems with his immune system, a pediatric allergist/immunologist has the unique skill set required to properly treat your child.
Your child’s immune system ﬁghts infections. If your child has allergies, her immune system wrongly reacts to things that are usually harmless. These reactions, caused by exposure to allergens may cause her body to respond with health problems such as asthma, hay fever, hives, eczema, or a very severe and unusual reaction called anaphylaxis. In addition to allergy symptoms, an impaired immune system may cause your child to suffer from frequent, reoccurring infections like sinusitis, pneumonia thrush and abscesses. A pediatric allergist/immunologist ﬁnds and treats these allergies and immune system problems.
Going to the doctor is stressful for children. Initially, they might take their allergic reactions personally, and think that there is “something wrong” with them. We assure them that many people suffer from allergies. There is nothing out of the ordinary about allergies. Once children are comfortable and understand that their allergies are treatable, going to the doctor becomes entertaining, even interesting. Our comprehensive allergy testing process fascinates many kids, and it empowers children to learn how each individual body functions and how each person responds to their surroundings.
