I went to talk to Dr. Kokan about food allergies and to discuss the allergies that I already know that I have. She tested a number of items on my back, including a control, to see if I reacted to any of them. 20-30 minutes later, I hadn't reacted to anything, not even the control. She tried to test the control two more times and when she finally got a tiny reaction out of that, she said that I didn't react to anything so I wasn't allergic to anything. I know for a fact that I was allergic to at least two of them items she was testing for. If the control didn't react then you can't expect anything else to react. She told me that no further testing would be needed. I asked her about some symptoms I was having and she said there was nothing I could do expect avoid the things that made me feel bad. Awful.

My young daughter has had both motor and vocal tics and extremely painful stomache aches for the past 1 1/2 years. After searching for every answer in the book, I and her primary doctor decided it was worth checking into food allergies as a very real possibility to the cause. When we arrived at Dr. Kokan's office, my daughter immediately liked and warmed up to the 2 nurses taking care of her. Dr. Kokan however, told us that none of these symptoms were EVER related to food allergies and she felt no need to pursue food testing. I looked at her and said, "Well, her primary doctor recommended it so here we are. Also, my internet research shows 100's of cases of this being the potential cause". She was rude, interupted me, told me I was wrong and that she's probably constipated and has HAYFEVER since one tic was sniffling last year! I was so outraged, we should have walked out but didn't. She "allowed" us to test for TWO FOODS if I agreed to the environmental tests. I WILL NEVER GO BACK
