The Division also has clinics for pediatric patients with rheumatologic disorders or Pediatric Acute Neuro-Psychiatric Syndrome (PANS). State-of-the-art diagnostic capabilities are employed. There are also a number of clinical trials available for interested patients to enter into. 

 

Allergy

The Allergy Clinics at Lucile Packard Children's hospital provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary services for the diagnosis and treatment of all pediatric asthma and allergic problems (650-723-0290).  

Adult allergy patients can be seen at LPCH and at Stanford Hospital and Clinics in the Boswell Building (300 Pasteur Drive, Stanford). To Schedule an appointment, please call (650) 723-6961. 

We offer allergen skin testing, spirometry, patch testing, food challenges, and immunotherapy ("allergy shots"). We work together with all specialties in the care of your child, including Pulmonary, Otorhinolaryngology ("Ear Nose Throat"), GI, Radiology, and others.

Immunology

The Immunodeficiency Program provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary services for infants, children, adolescents and adults with chronic or unusual infections or primary immunodeficiencies (PID).

Though this clinic is located in the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital (LPCH) space, we care for both adults and children who need diagnosis or treatment for these disorders. Starting in November, 2015, we plan to offer a new clinic at LPCH for pediatric and adult patients who have overlap between immunodeficiency and autoimmune/autoinflammatory disorders 

We offer thorough testing and clinical evaluation, including laboratory testing for immunological function. We will coordinate care with your primary care doctor and with other specialists including doctors from Pediatric or Adult Pulmonary, GI, Infectious Disease, Radiology, Stem Cell Transplant, and Otorhinolaryngology.

Rheumatology

The Rheumatology Clinic at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital takes a multidisciplinary approach to treating children with all forms of rheumatologic disorders.

Participation of physical and occupational therapists, social workers, and nurse specialists is included in diagnosis, treatment, education and rehabilitation planning. Members of the pediatric rheumatology team also work closely with other subspecialty services in order to provide patients with the most comprehensive and thorough care possible.

A separate clinic sees patients patients who need diagnostic or therapeutic management for Pediatric Acute Neuro-Psychiatric Syndrome (PANS).
