Dr. Matthew Fogg Feature: When caring for patients, I often ask myself, “what would I recommend if this patient was a member of my family?”
I strive to provide compassionate and outstanding care for all allergic and immunologic diseases. I do my best to create a partnership with those I care for that works to optimize their results. It is really important to understand the patient and their preferences and desires so that we can come up with a treatment plan that is effective and consistent with the patient’s world view. When caring for patients, I often ask myself, “what would I recommend if this patient was a member of my family?”
Although I love to care for patients with allergic rhinitis, asthma, eczema, and immunologic diseases, my particular area of interest and expertise is the treatment of food allergies. As the Director of Food Allergy Treatment at Allergy and Asthma Specialists, I am proud that we are the first allergists in the area to offer peanut sublingual immunotherapy to our patients. This procedure can afford peanut allergic patients a level of protection from accidental exposure that can significantly decrease their (and their family’s) anxiety about peanut allergy. I frequently perform oral food challenges to see if our patients are outgrowing their food allergies
