Anyone have a board certified pediatric allergist in the Kansas City area that they're pleased with? Had an appt. yesterday with a "fellow" at Children's Mercy and was NOT happy with appt. at all...currently seeing a pediatrician just specializing in allergies..

In 2001 Dr. Portnoy out of Children's Mercy successfully diagnosed my then 5 month old. His treatment was aggressive, she had all the symptoms of atopic march (asthma, skin and allergies). I was very pleased with his follow-up. He even called us at home. I do not know how he is now or if he is taking new patients. We moved in 2002.

We lived in Overland Park (we are in FL now) and we used Dr. Ghirgis. He is excellent. I'm not sure the name of the practice but it is on 112th just off of Quivira. That may be too far for you but if you are anywhere close I highly recommend him. I have a son wit a severe PA and he saw Dr. Ghirgis until he was 2 (he's 4 now) and he is wonderful with small children and is never in a rush to get you out of the office. Hope this helps.

thanks for both answers, guys..i REALLY appreciate it... and mom of austin...thanks for making your 1st post a reply to help me out! 112th and Quivira would NOT be that far of a drive if he's worth the trip... Children's mercy was 1 hr. away, so i don't think overland park is any further..might be closer... thanks again for both posts...
