"Food allergies can be tricky for anyone to understand, and as a pediatrician, I’ve noticed that even healthcare professionals get confused about the differences with different types of food reactions, let alone when to give epinephrine. Dr. Hoyt does a wonderful job clarifying common myths with evidence-based guidelines and also reassuring food allergy families. So thankful for her wonderful podcast!"

"Like having an allergist as a best friend. I’ve learned so much on Dr Hoyt’s podcast and it’s really helped me navigate my toddler’s peanut and egg allergies. I had to administer epinephrine for the first time this weekend when my toddler had a reaction that included violent coughing and vomiting while we were at Disneyland. I had so much gratitude to Dr Hoyt during that event because I have heard epis discussed frequently on her show, I was well prepared with epinephrine in my diaper bag, and the Auvi-Q epi Dr Hoyt recommended on this show was extremely simple and effective to use. We asked a Disneyland worker for assistance to get to an emergency room and my toddler recovered quickly. Throughout the experience I felt guided by Dr Hoyt’s voice (rather than even my own allergist’s) and I’m just so grateful to her for making the information on this podcast available. Thank you so much Dr Hoyt. 100% recommend."

"Breath of fresh air in a confusing world. It is comforting to hear an allergy doctor speak to parents and professionals who deal with food allergies on a daily basis. So many times these types of conversations can seem stuffy, but Dr. Hoyt is warm, understanding and discusses all her topics in a way that all can understand, not just those in the medical field. As a food allergy parent, this podcast and blog excite me."

"So, so valuable. I was introduced to Dr. Hoyt when she diagnosed my son with a nut 17 years old! She not only knows her stuff but is also the sweetest, most engaging doctor I’ve ever met. What else could anyone ask for in such a valuable, educational podcast?? Top notch, expert analysis combined with a friendly, inviting presentation. You’ll enjoy the information while feeling like you just had a conversation over tea with your neighbor."
