OAKBROOK TERRACE — Pediatric allergy and immunology expert Joyce Rabbat, M.D., joins Loyola University Health System. In addition, she is an assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.
Rabbat’s medical interests include the treatment and care of patients with asthma, food allergies, hives, swelling, drug allergies, contact dermatitis, eosinophilic, esophagitis, hay fever/allergic rhinitis, bee-sting allergy and vaccine reactions.
“Many people with allergies simply learn to live with them and suffer for years before seeking help and finding relief of their symptoms. An allergist can help identify a patient’s allergies, help to minimize their exposure to the allergens, and help treat their symptoms. When seeing children in the clinic we provide care in a child-friendly way to put both the child and his/her parents at ease.”
Rabbat is active in research and has had several articles published in professional journals, including the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology and the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and has made numerous presentations at conferences across the country. She is board-certified in general pediatrics and allergy and immunology. She is a member of the American Academy of Allergy; Asthma and Immunology; American College of Allergy; Asthma and Immunology; Joint Council of Allergy; Asthma and Immunology, the Illinois Society of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology; and The Chicago Asthma Consortium.
She earned her medical degree from the College of Human Medicine at Michigan State University. She completed her residency in general pediatrics and fellowship in allergy and immunology at Rush University Medical Center. She is fluent in Spanish and Arabic.
Rabbat sees patients at the Loyola Center for Health at Homer Glen located at 15750 Marian Drive, the Loyola Center for Children’s Health at Oakbrook Terrace located at 1S260 Summit Ave, and the main medical center campus in Maywood.
