My name is Sakina Bajowala,
and I'm the allergistmommy!


I am a Board-certified Pediatrician and Allergist/Immunologist, and mother to 2 wonderful boys, both of whom have inherited my genetic predisposition for allergies.
 
I created this site as a resource for parents of children with allergies and asthma, because I found there existed a need for information written from the perspective of an allergy/asthma/immunology expert who is dealing with the same medical issues in her own family. 
 
As a physician, my primary role is that of an educator, and I believe the internet is a natural extension of the medical classroom.  I hope the information here is both educational and entertaining.  Enjoy!
