Do they exist? Is it important to find one, or do you just go to the allergist for the allergy questions? My old pediatrician just said to stay away from peanuts when Kelsey had a reaction. Luckily I found this list and went to an allergist. I tried out a younger pediatrician today, who a friend said was highly recommended. She was even less informed and told me that Kelsey would probably grow out of the peanut allergy so I should try giving her peanut butter again after awhile! The words I'm thinking now I can't type!!! Actually, I told her politely what my allergist had advised and moved on to the next topic. In your collective experience does it make a difference to have a food allergy aware pediatrician?
