Dr. Richard Wasserman, MD
I am Medical Director of Pediatric Allergy and Immunology at Medical City Children's Hospital and managing partner of Allergy Partners of North Texas and was on faculty at UT Southwestern Medical School for 27 years. Raised in New York, I attended Hobart College, studied at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine and City University of New York Graduate School where I got a PhD in immunology from CUNY. I received my MD from Southwestern Medical School and did an internship and residency in pediatrics and a fellowship in bone marrow transplantation and immunology at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. After a fellowship at The Rockefeller University I became Chief of Pediatric Allergy and Immunology and Pediatric Program Director at Southwestern Medical School. In 1988, I started a private practice and research group in allergy and immunodeficiency. I have coauthored more than 100 peer-reviewed publications, case reports, book chapters and reviews and 80 International Meeting posters and presentations.

Care Philosophy

We believe that patients and parents are the true decision makers in healthcare. It is the responsibility of our physicians and their team to teach patients and parents what they need to know in order to make good decisions. We work to empower patients by explaining their problem and teaching them about the treatment options that are available. We encourage approaches that support self management but never leave patients on their own without access to immediate support. We use email communication to provide patients with ready access to their physician.

The best caring knowledgeable Dr I have ever meet. He has took excellent care of my son for 25 years and I trust him with everything, he is one of the reasons my son is alive. He never gave up on finding a diagnosis for my son and was always extremely so caring and always made me feel at ease even when things weren't looking so good. I will always be so grateful for all he has done and continues to do
