Dr. Nguyen has been a life saver! I’ve struggled with eczema and hives for a few years now as well as severe itchy eyes, increasingly more since moving to Houston. After testing and much evaluation, we’ve come up with a treatment plan for me to keep my condition under control. I haven’t felt better in such a long time. Especially with allergy season coming upon us, I normally feel it ALL THE TIME, but with my regular allergy shots, my symptoms are much more manageable.” – Angela P

I have suffered from seasonal allergies and eczema all my life until I came to Dr. Nguyen about two years ago. I cannot say enough good things about him. He is experienced, knowledgeable, and kind. Unlike most physicians, he takes time to thoroughly address all my questions and concerns and makes sure that I am comfortable with our treatment plan during each visit. On top of the wonderful care that I have received from Dr. Nguyen, I am amazed at how quick and attentive the service is at Texas Allergy. The staff always makes me feel at home by remembering my name and getting me in and out in a timely manner. Also, the office is spotless, which is always a plus. I would recommend Texas Allergy to everyone!” – Rachel Dawson

Innovative Allergy Clinic

Dat Q. Tran
Dat Q. Tran – Innovative Allergy Clinic
Dr. Dat Q. Tran is a Diplomate of the American Board of Allergy & Immunology. His expertise is in food allergy, allergic rhinitis, eczema, asthma, drug allergy, immune disorders, recurrent infections, dysautonomia, autoimmunity and oral immunotherapy. He received his Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, summa cum laude and his MD degree at Tulane. He did his pediatric residency at Texas Children’s Hospital and then went to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for his allergy/immunology fellowship and research training at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Afterward, he joined UTHealth McGovern Medical School in 2009 as an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics. Soon after, he received a prestigious NHLBI/NIH R01 grant funding to conduct research in immune tolerance for transplantation and graft-versus-host disease.
In 2015, he was promoted to Tenured Associate Professor. His passion has been in research and providing innovative treatments for patients. He has always been frustrated with the management of food allergy. Avoidance and an epinephrine auto-injector for the management of food allergy is NOT a treatment. In the pursuit of better treatments and clinic care for patients, he opened Innovative Allergy Clinic in June 2017 to provide innovative oral immunotherapy for the treatment of food and environmental allergies. He had resigned his tenured position and is now an Adjunct Associate Professor. He continues to do research and teaching at UTHealth McGovern Medical School. Ask any of his patients and they will all agree that he is compassionate, comprehensive, easily accessible and innovative.

I just saw Dr. Engler for an initial allergy evaluation, and he is outstanding. Great bedside manner. He was very thorough in asking questions, and then recommended several options for treatment. He went over the benefits/risks of each, and then explained very thoroughly what I could at home to help. He is clearly very experienced, but he is able to translate that experience into recommendations that I could easily follow. Staff is very personable as well. I’ll be taking my son to see him as well.” – Nina Leena
