Our innovative Food Allergy Immunotherapy Program (OIT) has helped several hundreds of patients overcome a fear of food.
Dallas Food Allergy Center (DFAC) is the food allergy specialty practice at Allergy Partners of North Dallas. We were one of the first practices in the country to start offering a breakthrough oral immunotherapy program (OIT) for people with food allergies. Our treatment provides a long-term solution for peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, wheat, seed, soy, chickpea, and coconut allergic patients. The treatment program usually takes about 6 months and, at the end of the program, most patients are able to consume their problem foods without an allergic reaction.
WHAT MAKES A GREAT PHYSICIAN?
We believe it’s a combination of expertise, experience and a sincere respect for patients. Our team has all three, and it shows in everything we do.
Expertise you can trust.
How do you know if your doctor is an expert in their field of medicine? One way is to see what their peer doctors have to say. Our physicians have consistently been recognized by their peers with honors in the fields of Allergy and Immunology.
OIT Program is on a cash only basis.
Allergy Partners of North Texas cannot bill our OIT patients’ insurance carriers until food OIT is appropriately recognized as a covered service by insurance companies. That means we must bill you personally and leave insurance out of the equation. We understand that this decision carries financial implications for some OIT patients, and sincerely hope things will change in the very near future. However, for now the OIT Program is on a cash only basis. Read more here.
