Pediatric Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology

Our division is the first academic medicine program with a focus on pediatric allergy, immunology and rheumatology in the Sacramento region. Our multidisciplinary team offers comprehensive inpatient and outpatient evaluations and follow-up for various allergic conditions and disorders of the immune system in children.

Because of the complexity of many of these conditions, we have established a multidisciplinary presence within the healthcare system and our physicians are regularly sought out for their consultation services by health care professionals in Northern California and Nevada.

Research Activities

Our faculty are involved in a variety of scholarly activities that contribute to our understanding of a great number of diseases of the immune system.

Our research projects include investigating environmental triggers of asthma, early identification of patients with immune deficiency and dysregulation, characterization of patients identified to have immune issues through newborn screening, and collaborative patient cohorts with a variety of rheumatologic diseases.

Academic Programs

Our faculty take part in the clinical education of medical students, residents and fellows through hands-on training. As a testament to their experience, the faculty are also sought-after topic educators at both the regional level as well as at national meetings. We offer an ACGME-accredited allergy and immunology fellowship for interested physicians to become leaders in the field and provide medical care for adult and pediatric patients with allergic and immunologic disorders in the academic setting, in private practice, or within the industry.

Our Patient Care Services

Pediatric Allergy

Our allergy team offers evaluations and management of various allergic disorders, including seasonal allergies, food allergies, drug allergies, allergic asthma, stinging insect allergy, and urticaria/anaphylaxis. The team utilizes skin prick testing, spirometry, laboratory analysis, and family education and training to further aid in the development of their treatment plans. Food and drug challenge clinics are conducted weekly in order to help determine tolerance to these exposures.

Pediatric Immunology

Our immunology team sees patients and offers treatment recommendations for children with a history of recurrent, severe, or unusual infections, recurrent fevers, low immunoglobulins, and for immune dysregulation syndromes. In addition, we are a primary Newborn Screening (NBS) Immunology Center, performing evaluations of children who have a concern for an immune deficiency based on their newborn screening results.

Pediatric Rheumatology

Our rheumatology specialists and team are available to evaluate and manage patients with suspected or diagnosed juvenile idiopathic arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, juvenile dermatomyositis, vasculitis, systemic sclerosis, and periodic fever syndromes, among other rheumatologic conditions. Comprehensive articular exams, along with laboratory analysis and imaging, are all offered in our clinics to help with treatment plans.
