I'm looking for a new Kaiser Allergist in the Bay Area. I was thinking of trying Walnut Creek or Hayward. I have been completely frustrated with Oakland.

My 3 yr old son is allergic to milk, wheat, eggs, peanuts, latex, dust, grass and cats. Discovered all the foods while breastfeeding. I know there are more things affecting him, but met resistance when I wanted to test more foods.

Any input appreciated!

I did a search over at kidswithfoodallergies.org for Kaiser allergists in the Bay Area, and it looks like all of the reccomendations say to check out the ones in Santa Clara, Redwood City or San Francisco.

Thanks for your help! I'll check those out and the website as well! They are little farther than I planned, but it will be worth it if I get the help I need. Thanks again!

We see Dr. Jacobs at that practice, and have also seen Dr. Nickelsen in the Berkeley office before he became affiliated with that group.
