With more than 20 years experience in medicine, Tina L. R. Dominguez is recognized as an expert in food allergy treatment and is adored by her patients. Since 2011, she has devoted her career to food allergy research and food allergy care. As one of the founding clinicians of the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy & Asthma Research at Stanford University, she has actively contributed to the massive progress in food allergy research. As a clinical manager at Stanford, Tina worked closely with patients undergoing oral immunotherapy (OIT), trained allergists on OIT protocols, participated in clinical trial design, and conducted several OIT clinical trials. She continues to work closely with and serve as an advisor to the program at Stanford. In addition, over the last four years, Tina has taken her experience from the research setting to private practice as the Director of an OIT program at a large private allergy practice. As a consultant for Aimmune Therapeutics, she has been very instrumental in developing training protocols, patient and clinical staff education materials, for physicians around the country who are offering Palforzia — the first FDA-approved OIT treatment — to their patients. Tina has provided care for thousands of food allergy patients of all ages through every step from diagnosis to treatment.
As a Bay Area native, Tina attended Stanford School of Medicine Primary Care Associates Program for her Physician Assistant Certification.
