We had a consultation with Shannon regarding my son who has an IgE-mediated allergy to dairy, egg and nuts. Shannon is really approachable, and nothing is too much. She really helped with difficulties we were having with my son's school and ensured he was meeting his nutritional requirements which was a relief.
