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.

Very knowledgeable provider. Lacks enthusiasm and warmth to connect on a genial level. Maybe she was low on energy that day for one reason or another.

Meeting with Dr. Brar was such a wonderful and refreshing experience [phi]. From the point of checking in to the time that we left, each person took the time to listen. They also asked questions to seek information in order to find the best route to treat my son, which I had not previously experienced [redacted]...they always came in, looked at him, told me what I should be doing (which I was already doing) and prescribed something. Dr. Brar and staff were extremely courteous and took the time to explain things in a way that was easy to understand. I also liked how they spoke directly TO my son and got his feedback and heard his thoughts, they didn't only speak about him to me but he was included every step of the way.

*Dr. Brar spent a lot of time with us. She seems to want to help us figure out what is happening with my son. Much appreciated!

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.
