    Anjali started oral immunotherapy when she was one year old

    Anjali’s mom, Rini: We have been so thrilled to have the opportunity to start OIT for our daughter at such a young age and in such a nurturing, wonderful environment. As a physician, and a mom, I feel so confident and grateful for the individualized care she is receiving.

    At 3 years old, Zakaria started oral immunotherapy

    Zakaria’s mom, Fatima: OIT is giving him a chance to actually live a life where he can go on an airplane and not worry if they’re serving peanuts, or if he goes to a friend’s house and we don’t worry if there are nuts around. We would do anything to give him a life where he can just be free. I’m so grateful Latitude is giving us that opportunity.

    David is off to college safely

    David: It’s so much nicer to know that I have this protection. I thought appointments would be very time-consuming but it’s been very manageable and the Latitude team has been great. Appointments are a lot of fun, and it’s a little family which is nice. It’s a very relaxed place — it’s a doctor’s office, but it’s not a high stress doctor’s office.”

I can't begin to describe the difference in approach and care that the professionals here at Latitude take versus our previous allergy doctor. If you have a child with allergies and are looking for a place to help you navigate, manage, or mitigate those allergies, there is no better place than Latitude!

I highly recommend Latitude Allergy Care in San Rafael! Dr. Royer and the entire care team went above and beyond to help me navigate a food reaction my daughter had. We now feel more confident about how to approach food introductions and better understand specific foods to keep in the diet on a weekly basis to prevent food allergies. They were kind and professional, and it is very easy and simple to communicate with them as well.

I had a great experience with Dr. Royer during our initial consultation about my daughter's allergies. She took her time explaining all the potential options for treating/managing my daughter, and I felt like she really listened to me and wanted to understand all the specifics of my daughter's allergies. I feel confident that we will be in good hands working with her.

Latitude has been a game changer for me. I'm in my late 20s and have been dealing with severe tree nut allergies my whole life. I always thought I'd just have to live with it, until I discovered OIT (oral immunotherapy treatment) at Latitude. I've felt super safe and supported throughout the treatment. It's been kind of mind-blowing to see my tolerance steadily get higher and higher week after week (cross-contamination or small accidental exposures are no longer a fear, especially when I travel).

I am so thankful for the care my daughter received from Dr. Moreau and the entire team at Latitude. We started at a different allergy clinic closer to our home, but decided to move over to Latitude once they opened their first clinic. My daughter was allergic to eggs and they suggested doing a baked egg challenge. She was around 8 months at a time and as a new mom I had a lot of anxiety about the appointment. Everyone at Latitude made it clear that they were there to support me and offered whatever comfort measures they could. From there they supported us through exposing my daughter to eggs through their regimented program and over the next several months would quickly answer any questions I had through their portal (and wouldn't hesitate to hop on the phone when I needed extra hand-holding). When we returned for the final egg challenge my daughter was now able to walk (and run) around so I had more anxiety about another long appointment, but everyone again made things as easy and enjoyable as possible. Their office and exam rooms are clean, beautiful, and have loads of toys for children to play with. They have really thought about how to design the space to be safe and equally enjoyable for kids and adults (I didn't have to worry about her sticking her fingers in electrical sockets or anything like that). Everyone is incredibly kind, caring, and responsive. This whole ordeal was really hard to go through as a parent but every step of the way I felt like I was part of a large team who had my daughter's best interest in mind.
