Pediatric Allergy and Immunology

If your child’s immune system isn’t working as it should, they will have trouble fighting infections. And if allergies are an issue, the immune system will wrongly react to certain things that are usually harmless, such as animal dander and dust. A pediatric allergist and immunologist will help identify allergens and immune system issues through various tests and help treat them in children.

Kansas City magazine’s annual Top Doctors list is compiled by a trusted national health care research and information company, Castle Connolly. A physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors through a nomination process that is open to all licensed physicians in America. The results are then carefully screened. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected for the Top Doctors list.
