Food allergies or food intolerance can range from mild to severe, and determining the cause can often be challenging.  Our pediatric gastroenterologists specializing in food allergies and intolerances work with a multidisciplinary team of experts who help diagnose young patients and customize a treatment plan for each child.

Services & Programs

Our Pediatric GI specialists provide wellness and support services to help patients and families manage their care.  We have special expertise in conditions such as:

  • Celiac disease
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Food allergies

Diagnosis & Treatment

We help families understand their child’s dietary needs in the context of the family’s daily life.  Our team reviews life strategies for adapting to newly diagnosed conditions, why reactions to certain foods happen, and what to do if a child's symptoms are triggered. Through knowledge and new eating habits, we empower children and their families to understand and master their conditions.

In addition, nutritional counseling can help children and their families learn strategies to ensure their diet includes all required nutrients while eliminating restricted foods.

  • We are affiliated with the Phyllis and David Komansky Children’s Hospital at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, which is recognized as one of the top children's hospitals in New York.
