Allergies

We provide diagnosis, treatment and education for allergic problems.
About

Allergic problems include respiratory tract disease, gastro-intestinal disease related to food intolerance, skin disease, generalized symptoms, and anaphylaxis. 

The allergy clinic takes referrals for children from all parts of BC. About 30 per cent of the children come from outside the Greater Vancouver area and more than half have been seen previously by, and are referred from, other specialists, mainly general pediatricians.

The clinical program includes education of medical students and specialist trainees, as well as clinical research. 

Mission

  • To provide the best and most up-to-date investigation and treatment of allergic diseases in children
  • To improve the quality of care of children with allergic disease throughout British Columbia by the development of regional partnership programs.
  • To provide effective education of students, post-graduates and practicing physicians in the basic science and evidence based approaches to allergic disease to enhance quality of care in the community.
  • To develop innovative research projects with practical applications.
