Our clinic at Vanderbilt Health One Hundred Oaks evaluates and treats children with all types of allergy problems. We also conduct skin testing to determine your child's allergies. Consultation services are available with a physician referral or parents can call for appointments.
We are usually asked to determine if a patient's symptom may be related to an allergy and to recommend age-appropriate treatment. Most initial consultations are completed in a single visit, lasting from one to three hours. Skin testing for allergy isn't always performed on the first visit. If this test is appropriate, we'll talk to your about the process.
Other allergy tests may include a sinus CT scan, chest X-rays, or lung function studies. For those currently using medications and avoidance measures, but still having symptoms, immunotherapy may be discussed and offered. We prescribe and supervise replacement therapy with intravenous immunoglobin.
Our team diagnoses and treats many allergy and immune deficiency disorders, including:
- Allergic rhinitis or hay fever symptoms
- Asthma/recurrent wheezing
- Eczema and Atopic Dermatitis
- Urticaria or hives
- Angioedema or allergic swelling
- Anaphylaxis or severe allergic reactions
