Diagnosis & Treatment

To determine the cause of your child’s symptoms, we offer an array of diagnostic tests, such as

  • Thorough medical history, family history, and physical examination
  • Skin testing for environmental allergies
  • Pulmonary function testing for asthmatics
  • Blood tests to evaluate immune system function

We offer a wide range of treatments for children with allergies and immunodeficiencies, and customize our treatment approach to your child's specific medical condition.  Our therapies may include:

  • The latest and most effective corticosteroids (anti-inflammatory medications for patients with asthma)
  • Bronchodilators to ease breathing
  • Immunotherapy (allergy shots and under-the-tongue treatments), which can help your child develop a tolerance to allergens
  • Antihistamines

If an environmental source is triggering the allergy, we explore ways you can control or eliminate the allergen.

What Sets us Apart

  • We are affiliated with Komansky Children’s Hospital at NewYork-Presbyterian, the #1 ranked children’s hospital in New York City on the 2017-2018 US News & World Report Best Children’s Hospitals survey.
