A Proactive Approach to Allergies and Feeling Empowered

Written by Meredith S.

Dr. Agrawal has cared for our son for almost three years, and the transformation has been a real gift. John has multiple severe food allergies, environmental allergies, and asthma. Dr. Agrawal has helped us get John’s allergies and asthma under control, and we are addressing the food allergies through oral immunotherapy. For nine years, our only plan was avoidance of the allergens and annual testing; now we are taking a proactive approach. Dr. Agrawal is so knowledgeable about food allergies and he explains the testing in a clear way. As John’s test results have shown improvement, we’ve done food challenges to confirm he has outgrown some allergies. We travel to Freedom Allergy from Memphis, but what we have gained makes the hours of travel worth it for us. Our son is confident and knowledgeable rather than fearful, and we feel empowered rather than helpless.
