New Allergy/Immunology clinic in Stone Oak
Allergies, asthma and immune problems, while sometimes life-threatening, are more often just a nuisance that prevent people from really enjoying life. Stone Oak Allergy is committed to providing superior health care that leads to an improved quality of life for every patient.
Dr. Amanda Trott-Gregorio recently returned home and opened Stone Oak Allergy to serve as an allergist in the community where she grew up. She treats both adult and pediatric patients with many different allergic disorders as well as asthma and dermatological disorders. Dr. Trott is also well versed at diagnosing and treating ocular allergies, nasal allergies, skin allergies, asthma, food allergies and general immunologic disorders.
Stone Oak Allergy is located on Hardy Oak in the Hardy Oak Medical Pavilion. Dr. Trott said she’s enjoyed working in the Stone Oak area because of the people she gets to be surrounded by everyday. “The patients I've seen here have been so incredibly nice and laid back, it's just been such a pleasure, it's hard to call it work,” she said. Dr. Trott received her undergraduate degree in molecular and cell biology from Texas A&M University and her advanced medical training in pediatrics from The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. She trained in both pediatric and adult allergy and immunology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. She was a recipient of the 2010 Resident Research Award from UTMB and has published articles in major medical journals and medical textbooks.
Stone Oak Allergy is a new practice with old-fashioned values. Dr. Trott personally understands what it’s like to struggle with severe allergy symptoms and is devoted to doing whatever it takes to help patients. “A lot of times we forget how good it feels to just be ‘normal’ since we've been going around with symptoms for so long.” Dr. Trott said. “My goal with each and every patient is to put the spring back in their step, to get them to the point of feeling good again as quickly as I possibly can.”
For patients who experience allergy problems during the upcoming ragweed season, Dr. Trott said it's important to keep windows closed at all times, with the air conditioning on. It's also very helpful to shower before bed after being outside and exposed to pollen, as this washes away the microscopic allergens on hair and skin so they don't end up in bed where they will be inhaled all night.
