About Srinivasan, Prasad

DR. PRASAD SRINIVASAN graduated from Baroda Medical School, Baroda, India, where he also did his internship. He did his residency at Brookdale Hospital Medical Center in New York and fellowship in allergy and immunology at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago. He is board-certified in pediatrics and allergy and immunology. Dr. Srinivasan is proud to work at Allergy Associates of Hartford, where he says, All of us in our practice are people people...We listen to our patients, have a conversation with them and then review the various options for allergy and asthma treatments. We call patients in the evenings and on weekends on our own, checking on their progress. We treat patients with asthma and allergies. It is an extremely exciting time in allergy, he says about allergy treatment options. The approach to food allergy is being revisited, he says. He cites a recent English study that reports early introduction of peanuts can prevent or reduce the incidence of peanut allergy. Patients who are allergic to peanuts can now be desensitized to them. The success rate for peanut desensitization is very high. The whole family doesnt have to live in fear of accidental ingestion, he says. Another exciting development is sublingual immunotherapy. A patient can place a tablet under the tongue instead of getting allergy shots for grass and ragweed allergies. This form of treatment will have a huge impact on families and patients in terms of time commitment, logistics and of course economics. Other allergens to be treated in a similar way are in the pipeline. Dr. Srinivasan has been featured numerous times in the media and is a Connecticut State Representative for House District 31 in Glastonbury. He is a ranking member of the committee on public health, and also serves on planning and development and finance.
