Getting Ready for the Allergist

In 2 weeks we will be heading to NYC to see the pediatric allergist. We have a little notebook that we are writing questions in to ask. I wonder how much time they give us? Though our new pediatrician gives us time, not all do. You are lucky if you get 5 minutes to ask one or two questions. I know we are going to do the skin test (not looking forward to that at all), so we will be there a while. But I wonder if they see other patients during that time, or if they stay with us. I am so anxious to go. I have so many questions and concerns that I don't think they will be able to address them all. Heck I will probably go blank and not remember to ask half of them.

Someone in my online food allergy group sent me this link to get started. So I am sharing it with you!

If you have any ideas of what else I should be asking, please share!


  1. HI - We are going to the allergist at Mt Sinai on Tuesday 7/20. They answered all of our questions on our 1st and 2nd visits. It is our 3rd visit (4th if you include the nutritionist). I found your blog because we just created a team for the allergy walk. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions. Laura (mom of 23 month old Jack - allergic to peanuts, tree nutes, dairy, eggs, soy and wheat).

  2. Hi Laura! I'm so glad you found us, and am super excited that you created a team for the allergy walk! I would love to connect and ask you some questions. I've got tons.

  3. My office has certain time slots for certain types of appointments.. If you are curious, you could always call and ask them how you are slotted. :)


I love hearing what you have to say!
