Allergy Evaluation and Management for Children
To make appointments or contact us, call: 914-493-7585

Our faculty includes two pediatricians board-certified in allergy and immunology, and our division is fully equipped for both the diagnosis and treatment of all allergic conditions.


Common reasons for referral include:

  • Allergic rhinitis (hay fever), both seasonal and perennial.
  • Allergic Dermatitis (eczema)
  • Urticaria (hives)
  • Food allergies, including the recently described syndromes of eosinophilic esophagitis and eosinophilic gastroenteritis.
  • History of possible anaphylactic reactions
  • Mastocytosis
  • Drug Allergies, including concerns about immunizations including the flu vaccine.
    • Some children may be able to tolerate flu vaccines even with a possible history of egg allergy.  However this should not be done unless under the careful supervision of an allergist such as ours.

Our services include:

  • Allergy Testing, including skin testing and blood tests
  • Nutritional evaluations for multiple food allergies
  • Oral Food Challenges
  • Environmental allergy management and education
  • Allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots) for environmental allergens and venom stings
