Safety is our number one priority and the hallmark of our program. Since 2005, we have safely conducted over 16,000 challenges. Millions of doses have been dosed at home with the rate of epinephrine use 0.004%. Less than 5% of our patients experience any frequent adverse events.
The customized, strategic use of medications minimizes side effects (i.e. reactions) and improves the likelihood of success. And we create customized emergency plans for every patient with 24-hour on-call support. Our process begins with the relationships that we cultivate with our patients. The demands, discipline, and time commitment of oral immunotherapy can be intimidating to parents, and even more so to children who are suddenly told to eat the foods that previously made them sick. Earning and maintaining every child’s trust is critical to ensuring successful outcomes. Children who live with food allergies experience anxiety on a regular basis, but during their oral immunotherapy at SoCal Food Allergy, they know that they are safe.
We treat our patients at Miller Children’s Hospital and in our state-of-the-art TIP clinic located across the street.
