Allergy and Immunology Clinics

Pediatric Allergy Team - Vanderbilt One Hundred Oaks

Our Allergy and Immunology Clinics at Vanderbilt Health One Hundred Oaks and Edward Curd Lane evaluate and treat 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 you can call us to make an appointment for your child.

We are usually asked to determine if a patient's symptoms may be related to an allergy and to recommend age-appropriate treatment. We can complete most initial consultations 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 explain the process to you.

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, we may discuss and offer immunotherapy. We prescribe and supervise replacement therapy with intravenous immunoglobin.

Other treatments at Children's Hospital include those for

  • Allergic rhinitis or hay fever symptoms
  • Pediatric asthma
  • Eczema and atopic dermatitis
  • Urticaria or hives
  • Angioedema or allergic swelling
  • Anaphylaxis or severe allergic reactions
  • Medication/drug allergy
  • Sinusitis
  • Chronic ear infection/otitis
  • Food allergies in children of all ages, including infants
  • Bee sting allergy
  • Humoral and cellular immunodeficiency

The program is led by James Connelly, M.D., a nationally respected hematologist/oncologist who specializes in stem cell transplant for nonmalignant conditions.
