Allergy Associates of La Crosse Welcomes New Staff to Allergy Team
December 1, 2014
Allergy Associates of La Crosse is pleased to welcome two new staff members to its Onalaska allergy clinic.
Nikhila Deo Schroeder, MD, has joined Allergy Associates of La Crosse as an allergist who will treat both pediatric and adult patients. A Wisconsin native, Dr. Schroeder is pleased to return to her home state after completing her Allergy & Immunology Fellowship at the University of Virginia. She received her Master’s Degree in Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and doctorate from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. She is board certified in Pediatrics, by the National Board of Medical Examiners and American Board of Allergy & Immunology.
Dr. Schroeder is excited to join a practice that is known for its pioneering work in using sublingual immunotherapy to treat allergic disease and looks forward to meeting many of the patients who travel from around the country to receive allergy care.
Allergy Associates of La Crosse is also pleased to welcome Registered Dietitian Emily Melby to its team. Melby is a graduate of Viterbo University’s Community and Medical Dietetics Coordinated Program. She brings clinical nutrition experience from Mayo Clinic Health System and Gundersen Health System in La Crosse, as well as Tri-County Memorial Hospital.
Melby looks forward to using her expertise in dietetics and patient education to provide additional support to patients seeking treatment for food allergy and related dietary counseling. “I’m intrigued by the rising prevalence of food allergies and the factors that influence that increase.” She is also interested in the connections between autoimmune disease and their links to food allergies and intolerance.
