I love coming to the Food Allergy Center in Sarasota. The doctor and staff are awesome.  


    The first oral immunotherapy clinic in Florida.  Since 2012 we have offered hope to people with severe food allergy.  No longer will every meal bring the anxiety of a potential anaphylactic reaction.

    We look forward to meeting you and hearing your food allergy story.  Together, we will make sure it has a happy ending.


    Food allergies are on the rise! Food allergies disproportionately affect children, but in turn, impact the entire family, day care centers, and schools.

    Our goal is to prevent food allergy at the very earliest stages of life and if that fails, offer safe and effective treatment to restore normal eating habits.
