I have switched from my current allergist to Dr. Young, I had seen him speak a few times with FAAN and read his PA answer book, he was great, he took the time to get to know Jillian and ask her questions, we talked about cross contaimation, what air borne allergy really means and what does it mean thateach year her blood test for peanuts is increasing, he even took another blood test, although it had only ben 8 months

Do others see him as well??

P.S. I noticed alot of PA mom's from the south shore of Mass, it would be nice to have a get together, to have a comfort group, you know others to bond with to confirm we are not all neurotic mothers hahaha!!!!
I live in Avon and have a 4 yr old PA daughter and my nephew (4 also) who lives in Sharon has a PA too- is any one interested-please email me-thanks!

Dr. Young is my daughter's allergist too. We have only been to him once (a few months after our realization of her allergy last year). We will be going back to him for our annual visit in March. Last year I was still in a shocked/panic mode when I met him, but this year I am looking forward to having a more clearer-headed discussion with him. I live in Ashland, which is a little far from the South Shore, but I'm always interested in meeting and speaking to other PA families.
