Meet Dr. Bajowala
Dr. Sakina Bajowala has been practicing in the Fox River Valley since completing her extensive training in allergy and immunology. As an asthma and allergy sufferer herself, she has a unique ability to identify with her patients and assist them in developing a comprehensive plan to control their most troublesome symptoms.
Dr. Bajowala has presented at international, national and local conferences, and has designed research investigating the interplay of allergic and gastrointestinal diseases. An accomplished public speaker, she has been a featured guest on radio and educational lecture programs, as well as interviewed for national publications such as WebMD and Woman's Day magazine. (Click here to see a list of articles in which Dr. Bajowala has been quoted.)
She is the author of a popular allergy blog, a best-selling book about food allergen desensitization, and a new children's book about food allergy treatment. Dr. Bajowala is also the developer of the Food Allergy Fix mobile app, a secure digital dosing record and safety-optimization tool for food allergen desensitization.
Dr. Bajowala is happily married to her husband of 20 years, with whom she shares two awesome teenagers. She's not only your local allergist, but also your neighbor- she lives with her family in Sugar Grove, IL.
Her interests include interior & graphic design, exploring diverse cultures through world travel, and vocal performance.
