Calling all allergists! Dr. Wasserman, PhD and MD, will share his OIT protocol with board-certified allergists

Does your local board-certified allergist need an OIT protocol? Wants to get started? Many of the OIT allergists have been “found” by patients. If they were interested in learning about OIT, the doctors have worked together to train and mentor each other. Since OIT is not YET taught in med school, or during training, it has been old-fashioned “doctoring” which has transformed the field of food allergy. We owe the many clinical trials around the world a debt of gratitude for creating, testing and refining the protocols.

Patients have sought out top allergists and pleaded their case for a treatment for their child. Many allergists were interested already and needed initial patients. Private Practice OIT, meaning “not in a clinical trial” has grown through 10 years of grassroot efforts and combined efforts of parents and physicians. Read more about the story of OIT and it’s growth here in About Us.

Many of our doctors are “found” by patients. Take our list, develop an OIT FACT sheet and start mailing and calling every allergist near where you live. I can guarantee they are out there; waiting for YOU to find them and be their first patient. Stop waiting for someone to drop them in your lap! If you want local treatment….as Liseetsa Mann says, “Never underestimate the power of begging.”

Dr. Wasserman shares his protocol with other docs:
“Note to Allergists/Immunologists: If you would like to obtain a copy of the oral immunotherapy procedures we use, please send an email request to Include a link to your website or enough identifiers so that I can confirm that you are Certified by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology. After confirmation we will provide you with the information requested.”

Dr. Wasserman has a PhD in Immunology along with his MD degree. He derived his OIT protocol from Dr. Mansfield who was truly a pioneer in OIT. Dr. Wasserman has helped more allergists get into OIT than anyone in the field.  In a true measure of “group think” the Dallas areas is the most-populated area with board-certified allergists treating patients with OIT. My favorite quote from him: ““Clinical trials are really important and we depend on them to provide us with more rigorous information. But children are suffering now. I don’t think every ‘i’ must be dotted and every ‘t’ crossed before you help people.”

So find the top allergists in your area, and begin a letter-writing campaign today directing them HERE to see their colleagues changing lives every day. Print off a list of OIT studies here: Summary of OIT studies, Dr Mayer’s site.

Dallas Food Allergy Center
Providing Hope for People with Food Allergies

Our innovative food allergy immunotherapy program has helped hundreds of children overcome a fear of food.

DallasFood Allergy Center (DFAC) is the food allergy specialty practice at DallasAllergyImmunology. We are one of the few practices in the country that offer a breakthrough oral immunotherapy program for kids with food allergies. Our treatment provides a long-term solution for wheat, egg, peanut, tree nut, and milk allergic patients. It is usually takes less than 6 months, and at the end of the program, most patients with allergies to wheat, egg, peanut, tree nut, or milk are able to consume these foods with no allergic reaction.

More than 80% of our patients can now safely consume foods that once threatened their health.

The DFAC program has helped hundreds of children by setting them free from fear of their food allergies. The treatment works by introducing minute doses of wheat, egg, peanut or milk in solution for approximately 6 months (time period varies on individual differences). The program then progresses to small doses of the whole food for an additional several months, allowing the patient to eat these foods. As a result, the vast majority of our patients are able to consume wheat, eggs, peanuts and/or milk without any adverse reactions.

What would it mean to your family if you were free from worrying about severe food allergies?

Families tell us we have changed their lives significantly by helping their children eat foods that used to be harmful. The impact on family life has made a difference for not only the allergic child, but also for siblings and parents. Many children have graduated from the DFAC Food OIT program and are now eating eggs, wheat, tree nuts, or peanuts or are drinking milk without reactions.

What to expect from the DFAC food allergy program:

This program is designed for a child of school age or older who will be old enough to understand the reasons for participating and be actively engaged in the process.

The first visit of the oral immunotherapy process is a full day during which the child will receive multiple doses of very small amounts of diluted milk, diluted wheat powder, diluted peanut (or nut) powder, or diluted egg powder. The child will return weekly for dose increases followed by one hour of observation. Between each visit the patient will take two doses of the desensitization (allergenic) food each day at home. Once oral immunotherapy is complete, the previously allergenic food can be freely included in the diet. The food must be eaten daily to maintain the ability to eat it safely.
