Allergy and Immunology


Leading the way in Children's Allergy Testing, Treatment and Immunology

Welcome to the Division of Allergy and Immunology at Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York. We provide a nationally and internationally recognized team of health care specialists and researchers who offer a variety of outstanding clinical programs for allergy testing and treatment for your child.

The division houses the Jeffrey Modell Diagnositic Center for children and adults with primary immunodeficiencies (PID), the Rodolitz Center for Food Allergy, where children and adults with food allergies are diagnosed, treated and educated, and The Center for Childhood Asthma, which is the only center of its kind on Long Island.

The Division of Allergy and Immunology serves as the referral center for tertiary care of allergic diseases in infants, children, adolescents and their adult family members, including:

  • Seasonal and perennial hay fever
  • Asthma     
  • Food, drug, stinging insect allergies
  • Primary immunodeficiency
  • Pediatric HIV infection
  • Secondary immunodeficiency

Before your child's allergy and immunology testing visit, we ask that you fill out a medical history and symptom sheet, so that we can be fully prepared for your visit. After the history is filed, one of our physicians will run any necessary tests to help diagnose your child’s allergy or immunodeficiency disorder accurately. The allergy and immunology tests for your child may include skin testing, pulmonary function testing, and/or blood tests.

Our residency training and evaluation program at the Division of Allergy and Immunology is nationally recognized. We support an active basic and clinical scientific research agenda.
