Looking for Allergist in Buffalo

Hi everyone. I was hoping someone could recommend an allergist in the Buffalo area. The doctor I saw before we moved here didn't have any recommendations. Searching on-line, I can't find anyone specializing in food allergy. Does it matter if the doctor is an allergist or should they be an allergy/immunologist??? Help!? My son has only been tested once last July and they recommended he be retested in a year.

Hi, Im also looking for a new allergist in the buffalo area, and I have heard about Dr. Luis Melgar in Hamburg. Im trying to find out some more info about him, but not having much luck. Im considering making an appt. and see what I think. Have you heard anything about him?

Hello to you both! I've had great luck with my DD's allergist: Dr. Yurchak at Buffalo Amherst Allergy Assoc. The office is kid-friendly, and he takes the PA EXTREMELY seriously. Appointments tend to be timely. I can't say enough about how helpful he, and his office, have been. Good luck! Beth ps - the office is at Sheridan Drive/Transit Rd.

Thank you! It helps to have a recommendation and not just pick blindly! Especially since you obviously share the same concerns. I will look into getting an appointment- hopefully they are accepting new patients [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Maybe we'll see u there...!

momma2boys- no I haven't heard of that doctor...from buffalobeth's recommendation, though, her doctor sounds like an ideal candidate...good luck

and while I have found some local people...any recommendations on a safe nursery school or pre-school- I just took my son out of his part-time day care because it was so awful for him...we are managing for now-I hate to leave him anyway, but can't do this forever [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

OMG !!! Dr. Kent and Dr. Yurchak were MY allergy drs when I was a kid ! I didnt think they'd still be around. Is your child in school? If so , how are they about the prep for that? That is my main concern right now.

One more thing, do they treat asthma? thanks!!

Small world! Yes, Dr. Yurchak treats DD for her asthma, as well. (pssst...he has great samples!) Her pediatrician has taken the lead on her asthma, but Dr. Yurchak has really been helpful with things like steroid dosing and navigating through the many medicines DD requires. I'm not sure in what part of town you'd need a preschool/daycare...contact me off-board at [email]beth1125@yahoo.com[/email]; I'll be happy to confer.

Sorry, forgot the school question... DD is in her first year of Kindergarten. Dr. Yurchak was VERY helpful when DD was diagnosed PA (2-y-o). He really helped me understand the dangerous nature of PA. I didn't ask Dr. Yurchak to help me get DD's pre-school/elementary school "set up," but we've been lucky with her schools.

Just wanted to let you guys know we just saw Dr. Kent, who is in with Dr. Yurchak and we were very happy with him. Thank you so much for recommending them buffalobeth.
