The Lurie Children's Difference

We take a family-centered approach to care and believe the best results occur when the parents, child and healthcare provider work together, each sharing their area of knowledge to help diagnose and manage the allergy. Partnering with your family helps us to best understand the types of reactions your child has to certain allergens; the relationship between timing and reactions; and your child's personal and family history. Knowing your child and your family allows us to better help you.

Our integrated team includes physicians, pediatric nurse practitioners and pediatric nursing staff to care for children with allergic rhinitis. Institute leadership is provided by Jacqueline A. Pongracic, MD, Head of Allergy and Immunology. Dr. Pongracic is board-certified in allergy and immunology and internal medicine.
