Donald T Drummond Md
I firmly believe Dr. Drummond saved my child's life. Since birth my first child was seen by another doctor, on her 16 month check up that doctor was not available and I was given the option to see Dr. Drummond, I accepted. He heard "something" in my child's heart (that the doctor who had seen her every 4 months had not heard) and referred me to the Cardiologist, my daughter needed surgery and is now turning 7 and really healthy. My second daughter dislocated her elbow at age 2, Dr. Drummond fixed it right away, she fell again a year later late at night falling from her bed and we went to the ER, after hours of hurting my child they could not get it back in, they called in a specialist who came in and did it right away, should it happen again I would wait until morning and get Dr. Drummond instead. It is just amazing to have such confidence in your pediatrician, I have so many stories, and my kids would have killed me of a heart attack if I did not have Dr. Drummond by our side. He is really laid back and used to frantic moms, he is just excellent with the kids, they have never been afraid to see a doctor which really helps!I live in Loxahatchee, and still drive to West Palm to see Dr. Drummond, he is the best!

Pediatric Associates West Palm Beach
I have been with Pediatric Associates since my eldest was born in 2008. The hours they offer, and the luxury of having 3 offices within 15 minutes of my house, makes this the best pediatric practice. I have taken my kids at 8am, 2pm, even 7pm, and each time been treated with care and pateince. The nursing staff is very attentive and friendly. The doctors there (we see several) are all very nice and take the time to ask you questions and dont rush you out the door. Overall, I see myself being with pediatrc associates for years to come. Why suffer through the typical 9-5 office hours when you can have the convenience, affordability, and reliability of a great staff that works around your schedule!! :) Thanks Pediatric Associates

I have told many of my friends about this office. I love the staff there. They are always friendly even when they are backed up, they make sure that I and my children are always taken care of. They are personable and I absolutely love Dr. Johnson and Dr. Muoio (sorry if I misspelled). I have had people switch Drs and come to this office. I'm glad that they did.

Tips & Advices
A true food allergy happens when a body's immune system perceives a certain food as harmful and reacts by causing symptoms in multiple organs. The most severe food allergies can result in anaphylaxis, which is life-threatening. In contrast, symptoms of food intolerance (such celiac disease, or intolerance to lactose or gluten) are less serious and often limited to the digestive tract.
Allergy skin testing uses tiny pricks in the skin to check for allergic reactions, typically to pollen, mold, pet dander, dust mites, and foods. Also called a skin prick, puncture, or scratch test, the procedure can test up to 40 different substances at one time. In adults, the test is usually done on the forearm; in children it is typically done on the back. The severity of the allergy is determined by the size of the raised, red, itchy bump (wheal) around the prick site. Skin testing is not painful, as the prick is extremely tiny, but it can be very itchy if your skin responds to the allergen. After the test, a nurse wipes the area with alcohol, which eases itching.
Board certification is a voluntary process. To become board certified, an internist or pediatrician must first complete at least two years of additional study an allergy/immunology training program. Then he or she must pass a certifying exam administered by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology (ABAI). Board certified specialists participate in continuing education to keep up with the latest medical science and technology and with best practices in patient safety and quality healthcare. There are approximately 4,500 board certified allergists/immunologists in the United States.
See an allergist if allergy symptoms (runny nose, cough watery eyes) last for more than three months and don’t respond to over-the-counter drugs, or if with  frequent sinus or ear infections or headaches. With other health issues (heart, liver, kidney, or thyroid disease, glaucoma, diabetes, or prostate problems), speak with an allergist and your primary care doctor before taking over-the-counter allergy or cold medication.
Asthma is a chronic lung disease that causes inflamed and narrowed airways. Symptoms include wheezing, chest tightness, difficulty breathing, and coughing at night or early in the morning. Children are more likely to have asthma than adults. An asthmatic person always has asthma, but will only experience asthma attacks if an allergic reaction or other hypersensitivity triggers bronchial spasms in the lungs. A severe asthma attack can be fatal.
