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

Dr. Wasserman says...

With fellowship training and more than 35 years of experience taking care of patients with immunodeficiency and a variety of allergic disorders, my colleagues and I provide innovative, leading edge therapy for immunodeficiency, asthma, food allergy, hives, eczema and nasal allergy. We employ state of the art testing and treatments supported by a robust information system that provides patients with ready access to their physician. We are particularly known for our treatment of primary immunodeficiency and food allergy. We have treated more than four hundred food allergic patients.

Dr. Wasserman says...

Allergy Partners of North Texas is recognized nationally as an innovator and leader in the treatment of life-threatening food allergy. Our research group has participated in studies of most of the immunoglobulin (IG or antibody) replacement therapies currently available in the US. We treat dozens of food allergy patients each week and care for more than 200 primary immunodeficiency patients.
