Across the nation, and in Suffolk County, the number of infants, children and adolescents with allergic and immunologic disorders continues to increase. Food allergies, in particular, are a growing concern as severe reactions may occur. Accurate diagnosis, ongoing education and long-term follow-up are important for patients with allergies or primary immunodeficiency diseases.
At Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, the Allergy & Immunology Division offers the most up-to-date treatments, access to state-of-the-art technology, and a child-centered approach to care that takes into account the child’s physical, emotional and developmental needs. We work closely with the other pediatric specialists at Stony Brook Children's to ensure a team approach to children with complex medical disorders. In 2014, Stony Brook Children's was approved as a Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID) Specialty Care Center by the New York State Department of Health.
