Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital Pediatric Allergy/Immunology

Specialized care for children of all ages with a range of allergy and immunology disorders

We provide comprehensive care for children with a wide range of allergies and immune disorders in the USF Pediatric Allergy/Immunology Program at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital.

We individualize your child’s care and use targeted medications and treatment approaches to best meet his or her needs. We offer several clinics that include physicians from different specialties that each address different kinds of allergy or immunologic conditions so that your child receives the right care for his or her condition.

We are also a Florida Department of Health designated center for newborn screening for severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), a rare primary immune deficiency that can be treated with stem cell transplant when detected early.

In the Allergy/Immunology program, our board-certified physicians are national level experts experienced in treating children with highly complex conditions. They actively participate in research on the cutting edge of the field, and apply their findings and expertise to provide our patients with advanced specialized care. Interested patients may participate in clinical trials for allergic and immunological disease offered through the Children’s Research Institute of USF and Clinical Trial Unit of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.
