Allergy Clinic

NEO Kids is proud to sponsor a pediatric allergy clinic that provides allergy testing and follow up for such conditions (or suspected conditions) as:

  • food allergies/intolerances
  • environmental allergies
  • drug allergies
  • insect sting concerns
  • questions of recurrent infections or concerns about immunodeficiency
  • asthma
  • eczema
  • hives
  • angioedema
  • anaphylaxis
  • penicillin challenges

What to Expect

Clinics are held every three months and led by Dr. Amy Blair, a Toronto-based Pediatrician who specializes in allergy and clinical immunology.

Please make sure your child does not take their prescribed allergy medications for 72 hours prior to their appointment.

Skin prick testing is frequently used in diagnosis.  Positive results indicate the possibility that the patient may have a clinical reaction to that particular food.

Blood testing can also be used to determine the likelihood of a child reacting during an oral food challenge.

Based on the results of skin prick testing and blood work, an oral food challenge is then the gold standard to diagnose or rule out a food allergy.

Referrals

Referrals are only accepted by Pediatricians for the Visiting Allergy Clinic.  If you feel your child requires assistance with possible allergies, please have your Family Physician or Nurse Practitioner refer your child to a NEO Kids Pediatrician by clicking HERE.

The Pediatrician will determine whether or not the child requires a visit to our Visiting Allergy Clinic for possible allergy testing.
