Affiliated Faculty

Pediatric Allergy & Immunology works closely with other specialties to provide comprehensive care to people dealing with allergies and immune deficiencies. Some of our collaborators include Department of Dermatology and Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. Our relationships with these specialties facilitate individualized treatment plans for our patients. Sometimes a provider may deem it appropriate for a patient to be seen in one of our joint specialty clinics.

In Memory of Eric Dreyfuss, M.D.

Eric Dreyfuss, M.D.

With the passing of Eric Dreyfuss, MD, the Pediatric Division of Allergy and Immunology and the Division of Allergy/Immunology and Rheumatology at URMC have lost a devoted clinician, mentor and benefactor. As a professor emeritus, he had over 50 years of experience in the practice of allergy and immunology and was still an active preceptor for allergy/immunology fellows. He will be greatly missed by his colleagues, students and patients.
