Professor Gideon Lack is a Consultant Paediatric Allergist working at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Foundation Trust and King’s College London as a Professor of Paediatric Allergy.
Professor Lack qualified from Medicine at Oxford University in 1985, and then completed specialist pediatric training in New York. He then specialized even further in Paediatric and Adult Allergy whilst training in Denver, Colorado.
Upon completion of his pediatric training, he was the Lead for the Department of Paediatric Allergy and Immunology for 12 years at St Mary’s Hospital in London. Then he began working at Imperial College London and Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust from 2005 and 2006, respectively.
He enjoys undertaking research and he mainly looks into asthma, peanut and food allergies, anaphylaxis, and desensitizing vaccines.
Dr. Lack was recommended through friends and provided us great council and support. He came highly recommended and delivered!
Prof Lack was recommended by my sister in law for the treatment of allergies. Prof Lack and his team responded quickly to our initial outreach and arranged for tests to be conducted the next day (keeping in mind the backdrop of COVID19 and a lot of outpatient services being suspended). We had a number of follow up consultation sessions in which he provided succinct, easy to understand responses and guidance. Having hit a brick wall with our GP, it was great to finally have answers to our questions about what was wrong with our baby and to have an appropriate course of action. Prof Lack’s PA also deserves a special mention as she is like no other that we have ever come across. She went above and beyond our expectations in arranging blood tests, prescriptions and follow up appointments at short notice and without being asked.
Professor Lack and his team are knowledgeable and thorough. They put children at ease through the whole allergy testing process. Professor Lack explains any treatment plan in detail and he happy to answer any questions that arise. I feel we are in the very best hands.
