The Allergy/Immunology Division of St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital offers evaluation and treatment for patients with allergies, asthma, and immunological diseases. Patients have access to up-to-date comprehensive testing for the diagnosis of these illnesses.  Following diagnosis, physicians will design and discuss a plan of treatment with the patient and referring physician.

The division treats both pediatric and adult patients; all members of a family can be treated by the same team of specialists.


The Allergy/Immunology Division provides diagnosis and treatment for the following conditions and diseases in children and adults:

  • Asthma
  • Rhinitis (hay fever) and sinusitis
  • Cough
  • Eczema (Dermatitis)
  • Urticaria - hives
  • Food allergy
  • Insect allergy
  • Drug allergy
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Frequent infections - primary immune deficiency

 

Diagnosis of allergy and immunological disease may include the following:

  • Allergy testing: usually skin and sometimes blood tests
  • Pulmonary function testing, including testing for exercise-related wheezing
  • Rhinoscopy: examination of nasal passages with a special instrument
  • Food and drug challenges
