Special Interests

As a parent of a child with allergies and asthma, I understand the stresses of managing these conditions. My hope is to empower the parent and child towards success. My special Interests include atopic dermatitis and contact dermatitis. In managing atopic dermatitis, I implement a holistic approach incorporating skin care, diet, behavior modifications, and avoidance of allergens. My other areas of interest include food allergy, anaphylaxis, and environmental allergies, particularly as they relate to skin presentation.

Dr. Brar is a wonderful doctor, she is caring, patient, concerned and well informed. I consider myself very lucky to have her as my doctor.

I wish she had spoken more to my son, who was the pt. she didn't do a great job of explaining to him - about his allergy, about plan for future. Pediatrics means everything for parents and kids - both levels are needed!

this was a new provider to us to establish care again as our previous provider left. our provider was very knowledgable and contacted me a few times after the boys appointments to follow up and give results and instructions that were very thorough and pleasant.

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2017
Provider very nice but I didn't understand the testing results, it was not explained, material provided only explained a little & results (also not explained) only arrived in the mail 3 weeks later.

National Jewish Health PatientSeptember, 2016
Care provider (*Brar) took extra time to print out medical records and results and explained them in detail. She also provided patient with school forms to help them with patients medical condition. I was very impressed with her care and concern for patient (my daughter).
