About Cindy Salm Bauer, MD

Dr. Cindy Bauer founded the Phoenix Children's Allergy and Immunology Clinic in 2013. Her areas of interest include food allergy, eosinophilic esophagitis, asthma, allergic/atopic diseases, and immunodeficiencies. She has authored multiple peer reviewed manuscripts/abstracts and currently is participating in several multi-center NIH funded studies including the ORBEX study (learn more at https://breatheeasyearly.infobreatheasyearly.com), the PARK study (Preventing Asthma in High Risk Kids), the Multicenter Airway Research Collaboration studies (learn more at http://www.emnet-usa.org/Marc_35/M35.htm), and more. She is passionate about medical education and serves as Site-Director for the Mayo Clinic Arizona/Phoenix Children's Hospital Allergy and Immunology Fellowship.

In the community, Dr. Bauer is involved with Camp-Not-A-Wheeze (serving as the Medical Director of this non-profit organization) and Arizona Allergy and Asthma Society (serving as President for 2020-2021). Dr. Bauer is committed to providing excellent and compassionate patient care in the field of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. She offers the most up-to-date diagnostic and treatment options, and she strives to partner with a child's other care providers to identify and treat allergic/immunologic conditions.

Outside of work, Dr. Bauer is married and has 3 children. She enjoys spending time with her family and therefore often visits her hometown in Wisconsin.
