I know from a previous post there are lots of Michigan Moms on this site. So I thought I would ask for any advise on a good allergist for my 20 month old son with PA, Egg, Dog,...and looks like grass too.
I am in the New Baltimore area (south-eastern Michigan). I would love to hear from anyone who has a doctor they like and trust.

We see Dr. McMorris at the UM Allergy clinic, and we really like him. There is also a Dr. Leo and Dr. Song at (I believe it is) St. Joe's in Ypsi/Ann Arbor who I would recommend also.
We are lucky to have all of these great allergists in our area!!

We see Dr. McMorris as well -- he spoke last night at the COFAF meeting -- he had mentioned that 80% of the patients they see at their Domino Farms location are children with FA. He had also mentioned that another allergist will be joining their group (thought he said coming from Johns Hopkins, but I can't remember)

We go to Grosse Pointe Allergy and Asthma Center (location in Macomb Twp). We see Dr. Anne White. She has a son with PA also so I feel really comfortable with her. I live in New Baltimore and it takes me about 25-30 minutes to get there (21 Mile and Romeo Plank).

I do live in MI, but Western. We go to Dr. Raymond Gonzalez in GR. We do like him, but my dd has some other issues too that he seems a little vague about. (hard to explain!) I have heard good things from others in my area that go to the U of M. I have thought about traveling there sometime too.

Thanks to all for the responses. I ended up making an appt. with Dr. White in Macomb on June 3rd. They are going to do the scrach test right away..I was a bit surprised...but felt a bit of relief too! Thank you Momto4boys for the info!

Your welcome. They did the scratch test on ds#4 when he was 11 months old. I was nervous, but it went okay (other than the + tests for dairy and egg, of course). That reminds me that I need to make an appoinment for ds#3 for a recheck of his dairy and egg. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

my son saw Marc McMorris from UofM I thought he was the best I had seen. Sadly we moved to Canada.
