Anyone in Massachusetts? (silly, I know)

If you do, and would like to say a 'good' word on your doc, please do.

If you have nothing to say, then don't, kwim?

That being said:

We saw, when Caitlin was YOUNG, Dr Rhein in Framingham (I think). We were naive at first, and our ped, eventually sent us to BCH.

We were in a pre-fda clinical study for Elidel under Dr. Lynda Schneider. We're still her patients now, really, but we see Karol Timmons NP now.

Our situation is 'status quo', and nothing changes, really, year after year, so that's ok. Therefore our 'care' is limited, kwim?

But we like Karol. We got a LOT out of her at the beginning.

Our nutritionist/dietician in Framingham Was umm.... I forget [img][/img] She helped a little at the beginning, but that WAS a while ago.

HTH someone looking for a 'good' doctor [img][/img]

I would recommend Dr. Moody in Concord. He also has an office in Brookline, I believe.

Alyssa was also a patient of Dr Schneider. We now go locally to Asthma and Allergy Associates---great practice, lots of offices. (we go to the Brockton office)

We've seen Dr. David Steinberg in Chestnut Hill. We haven't seen him since my DD was 2, that was about 9 years ago. We were happy with him.
Do y'all see an allergist regularly for just PA? Our pediatrician keeps an eye on things for my DD (retesting, etc.) so other than the initial visits, I haven't seen the need to keep going unless something comes up.

My daughter sees Dr. Dioun at Children's Hospital Boston. She also sees patients in Lexington. We go 2-4 times a year for allergies/asthma. We like Dr. Dioun very much and I've always been able to quickly get in touch with her by phone and by email.
We started with Dr. Stone at Children's Hospital Boston, but he moved to Washington, DC. We have also seen Dr. Twarog and Dr. Young at CHB.
My 18 month old has an appt. on Tuesday with Dr. Twarog re: possible contact reaction to peanut (she has no known allergies but avoids peanuts, tree nuts, eggs and chocolate at this time due to sister's history). I had tried to get her in with Dr. Dioun since Dr. Dioun knows out family, the history, etc., but unfortunately I was told she wasn't taking new patients until January.
That is the one thing about CHB--it is such a big practice that it is sometimes hard to get the front office staff to check into other possibilities. I found out later from Dr. Dioun that she would have seen my younger daughter if the staff had checked with her. I had suggested they do that when I booked the appointment, but oh well.
We tried a doctor in NH this summer to be closer to home and I, well, hmm, let's just say we decided the 1+ hour drive is well-worth it in comparison to him. He made the 504 process with the school a fiasco (and without my consent).

Anyone know a good allergist in eastern Mass for ADULTS with food allergies? I saw "the best" for kids in Brookline and he was absolutely awful when it came to adults.

We see Dr. Broff in Weymouth, he is with Dr. Young. They both also see adults in response to someones question about that.
We are very happy with them. We have been with that office for my sons allergies- pa and ea since diagnosis and now for asthma as well.

I'm in the same boat. I'm 25 and was diagnosed officially as PA at 16. I'm suspicious that since my allergy is mild it might just be a food intollerance. I'm looking for a doctor in MA (preferrably in metrowest or north boston) that can help me figure this out. Any suggestions?
