The Food Allergy Treatment Center

We are experts in the diagnosis and management of a variety of food allergy related conditions. Some of the common conditions we are able to diagnose and manage include the following:




Using state of the art skin testing and blood testing methods we are able to identify the exact food which may be contributing to one’s allergic condition. Typically, we are able to provide objective evidence of the incriminating agent within 20 minutes of the application of the skin testing.


Food Allergy Oral Desensitization


We are one of only a few outpatient clinics in the United States that are currently treating patients with a process called Food Allergy Oral Desensitization. Previously, once a patient was diagnosed as having a particular food allergy, avoidance of that offending food was the only treatment option. Now, through a delicate process called oral desensitization, our office is able to gradually reintroduce the allergic food back into the diet of the patient under a strict protocol. This has proven highly successful for most patients. Any patient that is 4 years or older with a documented food allergy to milk, egg, wheat, peanut, rice, soy and/or tree nuts is eligible for this process. There are exclusionary criteria that may prevent us from performing this protocol of desensitization. We encourage you to visit our office to learn more about how we can help you if you suffer from food allergy.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What patients are eligible for the Food Desensitization program?
    Patients 4 years and older with a history of an adverse reaction (hives, rash, swelling, cough, mild asthma, nausea or vomiting) to one of the eligible foods.
  2. What foods are currently being used during this program?
    Foods currently in use for the program are peanut, milk, egg, wheat, soy, rice and tree nuts.
  3. What patients are ineligible for the Food Desensitization program?
    We are not offering the program currently to patients with a history of severe anaphylaxis to the eligible food. Such symptoms would include a history of an admission to an ICU setting, the need for intubation, loss of blood pressure, severe throat closure, and severe asthma symptoms.
