Pediatric Allergy and Immunology

 

Phoenix Children's Hospital's Allergy and Immunology Clinic provides care for children with allergic diseases and disorders, including asthma, food allergy, “hay fever,” and eczema. The clinic is located in the Pediatric Pulmonology Department, thus allowing access to the Pediatric Respiratory Lab and its on-site respiratory testing. Allergy “skin testing” is performed in the Allergy Clinic for diagnosing seasonal and perennial allergies, food allergies, stinging insect allergies, and drug allergies.
