Explanation

We met with Dr Du Toit when our daughter was young and he diagnosed her multiple allergies - he was very reassuring and provided clear and practical advice. More recently our daughter became eligible for a research project for her milk allergy and Dr Du Toit gave us the confidence to put our daughter forward. As a result our daughter did the challenge and is now able to eat dairy - something we never thought would be possible. Without Dr Du Toit’s advice we would not have had the confidence to take the challenge and would still be avoiding dairy. We are so grateful and would highly recommend anyone looking for allergy support for their children to contact Dr Du Toit (and his very helpful administrator Hayley). Thank you so much.
