Finding the Right Doctor for Your Allergic Child

Just last week I got a call from a friend of a friend whose child was just diagnosed with food allergies. Phone calls like that remind me of how helpless I felt when Eden was diagnosed. One of our biggest issues was finding Pediatric Allergists to help us manage Eden's allergic condition, for the long haul. And sure enough, when I speak to other parents most often their concern is this: "I don't know if we have the right doctor . . . "

Which is why I wrote Finding the 'Right' Doctor for Your Allergic Child on The Huffington Post, last year. In the past eight years I've come to realize that all newly diagnosed food allergy parents share the same concerns and fears.
