Pediatric Allergy and Asthma
Allergies, asthma and other immune-related conditions can interfere with your child's daily life. Symptoms like sniffling, sneezing, skin rashes, breathing difficulties and other problems may indicate your child has a condition that needs treatment. Without the right care, everyday activities can become difficult and may result in more symptoms.
Our pediatric allergy, asthma and immunology specialists in Kansas City and Prairie Village work to diagnose, treat and manage allergy conditions so your child can get back to being a kid.
