Managing Pediatric Allergy Symptoms & Immunology Disorders

The immune system has a very important role of protecting the body from, and responding to, infections. Allergic disorders, such as food allergies and hayfever, occur when the immune system responds inappropriately to things in the environment that are otherwise harmless to others.

Immunodeficiency disorders occur when the immune system cannot properly fight infections, resulting in either recurrent or severe infections.

Allergic disease and immune deficiencies most often develop in the pediatric population. Our specialists focus on comprehensive evaluation and care of these conditions, treatment options for children, and how these immune issues can affect a child’s development and nutrition.
