Stephen Kimura, M.D.

“I am excited to offer OIT because I see such an increase in food allergies in my patients.  I feel frustrated that for so many years, all we could offer was avoidance and epinephrine should there be accidental ingestion.  

I see entire families who are affected because of the child with food allergies.  They all give up peanuts or tree nuts so that there is not the temptation to eat these foods. They avoid restaurants where peanuts are served, and in the South, you see boiled peanuts being sold on every corner.  We are also in one of the major peanut growing areas and ironically one of the peanut farmers’ child was found to be highly allergic.  After the harvest, the leftover plants are plowed over, and with that much of the peanuts left were crushed and the dust would cause him to react.

I was presented the opportunity to become involved with OIT after one of my former staff members moved back to our area.  She brings with her a wealth of experience in OIT and we have been in constant contact with Dr. Carr and his office as well as with Dr. Windom.  This gives us the wealth of knowledge from practices on both sides of the country and having a mentor in Dr. Windom allows me to have somebody within the state who is familiar with the nuances of this area.”
