Latest information on COVID-19

Our Mission

The Division of Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment of children with allergic, immune, or rheumatological disorders at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. Our physicians also provide outpatient evaluation and treatment of adults with allergic and immune disorders, particularly primary immunodeficiency, and consults for these patients who are admitted to Stanford University Medical Center.


We would like to thank the Jeffrey Modell Foundation for their generous support of the diagnosis and care of primary immunodeficiency patients at Stanford.
