A Look at Out Physicians

Dr. Luqman Seidu served as faculty in the Department of Allergy/Immunology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the Cincinnati Center for Eosinophilic Disorders (CCED) prior to starting his own practice in Atlanta at Omni Allergy, Immunology and Asthma. His responsibilities included instruction of residents and fellows at the institution as well diagnosing and managing both adult and pediatric patients with eosinophilic disorders, food allergies, asthma, eczema, immune dysregulation and other disorders. Immediately prior, he completed a three year allergy/immunology fellowship at the co-joint program at the Cincinnati Children’s Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. He started his fellowship with laboratory research training and was the first fellow at Cincinnati Children’s to be trained under the T32 grant by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Dr. Seidu had his fellowship structured to include basic science laboratory research and training during all three years of his training; focused on molecular biology research his first year with concurrent clinical responsibilities. His second and third years were structured to include protected time for continued bench molecular and clinical science research while expanding his clinical patient responsibilities. During his fellowship, he also spent two years attending the immunodeficiency clinics in the Cincinnati Children’s Medical Center as well as training in the University of Cincinnati and Bernstein Allergy clinics. His basic science research mentors were Marc Rothenberg, M.D., Ph.D. and Simon Hogan, Ph.D. Immediately prior to his fellowship, he completed residency at a Rainbow Babies Hospital affiliate program and graduated from an accelerated, combined BS/MD program in northeast Ohio.

He has been first author or co-author on several basic/molecular science and clinical publications in peer-reviewed journals on immune regulation in the intestine, allergic intestinal disease, eosinophilic diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, drug allergy, immunology and clinical allergy. Dr. Seidu has participated as a primary investigator or co-investigator on several clinical research studies dealing with immunodeficiency, immunoglobulin replacement, anti-IL-5 and monoclonal antibodies in the treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis and other eosinophilic disorders. He has spoken many times across the country about eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders and food allergy. He has served as reviewer for numerous journal articles related to allergy/immunology as well as gastroenterology during fellowship and continues to participate as an editor/reviewer for resources such as WebMD/Medscape.

He is affiliated with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Cincinnati Children’s Medical Center, and with Morehouse School of Medicine where he serves as an adjunct professor in Department of Pediatrics. Additionally, he is the director of allergy for the SEED (SouthEast Eosinophilic Disease) Center of Atlanta. He is a member of the American Academy of Allergy and Immunology, the American College of Allergy and Immunology, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Dr. Chih-Yin Yeh's medical training began at the prestigious National Taiwan University Hospital. Upon graduation from medical school in Taiwan, she elected to further her education and matriculated to Atlanta where she completed her residency training at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. During her residency training, her interest in the sub-specialty of Allergy/Immunology grew. After being selected as one of a handful of pediatric residents to present her research finding on growth in hundreds of patients with eosinophilic esophagitis at the national meeting for allergy/immunology, she continued actively pursuing opportunities to learn more and participate in additional research to further the understanding of allergic diseases to benefit patients. During her pediatric residency, she was invited to partake in translational research at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center investigating potential genes as the possible contributing causes of eosinophilic disorders.

Dr. Yeh was selected to complete her postdoctoral fellowship in Allergy and Immunology at Baylor College of Medicine/Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, Texas upon completion of the residency. There her fields of study included continued research not only in eosinophilic esophagitis but in eczema and food allergy as well. She researched and identified barriers for stocking epinephrine for patients with life threatening food allergies at public schools. She also authored and co-authored many articles on biologics, foods allergy, asthma and immunodeficiency.

Upon completion of her fellowship, she chose to return to Atlanta and practice allergy/immunology in a community-based setting. She treats both pediatric and adult patients with conditions such as eczema, food allergies, drug allergy (as well as drug desensitization), immunodeficiencies, asthma, allergic and non-allergic rhinitis as well as eosinophilic esophagitis and other eosinophil related disorders.
