Brenner Children's board-certified allergists and immunologists specialize in caring for children of all ages with asthma, cell deficiencies and food, environmental and medication allergies and use state-of-the-art techniques for the testing and treatment of all types of immunology-related conditions.
We provide individualized care for each child we treat. We work closely with families to develop customized treatment plans for their child and are always available to answer any questions parents and other family members may have. We also work closely with Brenner doctors in other specialties and our patients’ primary pediatricians to incorporate a multidisciplinary approach to treatment and care.
Our clinicians are experts in testing and treatment and use the latest in technology and medical advancements to provide the highest level of care for our pediatric patients. Our treatment programs include testing, food challenges and medical management and we help our patients get better through a robust program of care.
We test for all kinds of allergies, including food, skin, environmental, medication and insect allergies. Our program uses elimination diets and food challenges, which are performed in our offices or, if necessary, at the hospital. This enables us to take immediate action if allergy management is required. We also specialize in testing for medication allergies, such as penicillin allergies, and environmental agents, such as pollen or pet dander.
Brenner’s team of clinical experts specializes in the treatment of asthma. We focus on addressing the triggers that may lead to an asthma attack and conduct patch tests for contact dermatitis and eosinophilic esophagitis.
Immune Deficiencies/Chronic Infections
Brenner’s clinicians provide comprehensive care for children with immune deficiencies and chronic infections, such as chronic sinusitis or white cell defects. We perform blood testing to determine the particular types of deficiencies and use all available treatments to help our patients get better, including stem cell transplant and medical management.
Our team of professionals includes physicians, fellows and nurses, all of whom are dedicated to working with our patients to find the best possible way to manage their conditions. We do this through the use of the latest in technology for testing, treatment and long-term care.
