Food Allergy Clinic
The Devora Center conducts a special clinic for patients of any age with FOOD ALLERGIES. Our food allergy clinic also see patients of any age with ANAPHYLAXIS, CELIAC DISEASE, EOSINOPHILIC ESOPHAGITIS, and ATOPIC DERMATITIS. The clinic is staffed with a registered dietitian for guidance with special dietary needs.
During your consult visit, you will meet with Dr. Devora for a comprehensive history and physical exam. Food allergy testing might be recommended if indicated. Our registered dietitian will then provide you with information about about avoiding the allergic foods. Equally important, she will provide you with information about what foods are safe to eat while maintaining adequate nutritional intake.
A Registered Dietitian on Staff
Having a registered dietitian on staff allows us to work as a team to help patients meet nutritional requirements while on a restricted diet prescription. When necessary, our dietitian will conduct a complete nutrition assessment and put together a plan that will all nutritional needs and ensure proper growth for children. You will leave with scientific but practical nutrition education specific for you or your child. These recommendations will meet your particular preferences and lifestyle. You will also be guided as to brands and products of foods that will replace allergenic ones currently in the diet. It is a systematic approach that will make transitioning to the new diet very achievable. Ongoing communication with your dietitian will be available as needed, as she understands the apprehension of making major changes in the way you or your child eats every day.
