We were late to our appointment due to traffic and the team helped squeeze us in. we were so grateful as we wanted to find answers for the allergic reactions that she experienced. The visit went smoothly and tests were completed.
Dr Larkin is wonderful! very knowledgeable, great bed side manner, acknowledges parent concerns and answers questions appropriately and thouroughly.
Outstanding physician, She is the best care giver. I highly recommend her.
Excellent doctor. Dr. Larkin is the best!
had a very good experience
Amazing attention and care provided by both Dr. Larkin and Dr. Beckman (sp?). All of our questions were thoughtfully explained and the approach to ongoing care was arrived at taking into consideration our thoughts/ideas.
very nice and helpful . answered our questions and involved us in the decision making
It was a waste of time. The doctor read a previous blood work ordered by my PCP. She then said there was nothing left to do. I asked about other allergies like peanuts, dogs, cats, etc. She then wrote an order for it. The doctor had no plan of care for my son. She then had the nerve to ask if I wanted to come back in three months with my wife to just "talk." The appointment was a waste of time.
We saw Dr. Larkin for a check-up regarding my son's food allergies. he tested negative for his former allergies during the scratch test, but Dr Larkin ordered bloodwork and a food tasting in the hospital to be sure he is now free of these allergies. I was very impressed with all the precaution taken since food allergies can be so serious. I appreciate how gentle and kind Dr. Larkin and all the nurses were with my son.
very good staff and team. my child felt safe and secured.
Dr. Larkin and all the asthma/immunology staff go above and beyond with the level of care provided at each visit.
the dr went above and beyond what I could have hoped for. she called other dr offices to answer my question about a test that was ran because of her concern of his breathing which was not even why we were there she did a great job in carrying for my son.
Dr Larkin is very thorough and listens to all concerns. She is able to provide a plan of care in the event any asthma issues arise in the future. We are very pleased with our visit/s with Dr. Larkin.
Dr Larkin, Dr.Reed are the best dr i ever seen
outstanding care and attention.
LOVE Dr. Larkin. She spoke to my son in a way that he was able to understand and able to participate in decision making regarding his care.
Dr Larkin cares very much about her patients. She listens very careful to our concerns and want us to be part of the process.
very short wait time, nurses were super friendly and caring, doctor was awesome!
Dr. Larkin is an excellent doctor and she know her patients and medicine that she prescribes. My experience with my doctor and her nursing staff was very good excellent
Our son had been seeing Dr LArkin for years. She takes time with him and addresses care and concern - always on time, friendly and he gets a sticker :) We would highly recommend
from the first time we have been to the office, we continue to get wonderful service. dr larkin continues to provide my son amazing treatment, caring about him and his health as if he was in her family. we could not ask for a better allergist and nursing staff.
I appreciate individualized consideration when my son's test results don't "fit the norm" or come back as expected.
Dr. Larkin is wonderful! She is thoughtful, caring, and smart. She makes her thinking transparent and we always leave with a game plan. We feel very fortunate that Dr. Larkin is caring for our boys.
Dr. Alyson Larkin is a wonderful person and doctor. Not only did she see my daughter while she had no office hours but she called us directly to check on my daughter over the weekend. I have never experienced such a high level of concern, compassion, or personal investment with a doctor. She is truly a gift to her field and an asset to the hospital.
Everyone at Children's are always amazing, even though we have to drive over an hour to get there, it is worth the drive.
Dr. Larkin is amazing!!! We have seen her yearly and always feel like we have left the visit accomplishing everything we need to. She is always understanding and helpful!
love dr Larkin
Dr Larkin is more than great. I know she helped us with our son so much, she cares every moment, i had to call her office before, she responded quickly. Thank you for having a Dr like Dr Larkin!!
took the time to explain everything was extremely nice!
Our last visit was most successful. We were understood well. I only wish this provider explained a little more about how anaphylaxis works, what would be the best dietary choices for my daughter with milk and egg allergies, and more specific discussion about how on contact allergic reaction works. During last visit I learnt for the first time that anaphilactic shock happens only if you swallow milk or eggs, before I thought that anaphilactic shock can be caused by skin contact as well.
Dr Larkin is an excellent physician. She shows great care and concern for my son. She listens to my input and always shows respect to both me and my son.
Dr. Larkin is always warm and kind and gives all the information we need for my son's food allergies. We are thankful to have her as his doctor!
Dr. Larkin was excellant and was able to see my child for a problem, but not acute issue in a very timely manner. I spoke with her ahead of time and was able to try some new OTC meds until his appt
Dr. Larkin was very caring and concerned and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
excellent allergist, highly recommended. extremely kind and knowledgeable.
We love Dr. Larkin. She has been so helpful in getting our son's allergies and asthma under control.
this was our first visit with Dr. Larkin for my sons allergies and asthma and i absolutely appriciated everything! Her bedside manner is amazing and she explained everything and always asked me is this ok, how does this route sound... AMAZING woman! we have need help for so long and she did more then many doctors have just in our first visit!!
Staff was very attentive and caring.
Always complimentary and helpful
The staff were wonderful, especially Dr. Larkin. She helped put my worried mind at ease when for the past 6 months I have been trying to find out what has been causing my daughter such trouble/pain. She listened to my concerns and description of the issues and actually had answers for us, which we have not had in a very long time. Thank you so much for helping us find these answers so we can finally do the best we can for our little girl!
The nurse and Dr Larkin were wonderful! Our daughter's anxieties were eased because of their bedside manner! You guys are fantastic. Thank you so much!!
Dr. Larkin was great. Very caring and explained everything and contacted another doc when she didn't think she was the right set in my child's health concerns.
Dr. Larkin is wonderful. She gives my daughter and I peace of mind knowing we are in perfect hands!

Dr Larkin was very friendly, sweet and calm. I truly appreciate her effort to helping my son and I.
Dr. Larkin and the staff were all very curteous during our visit. I would use the clinic again and recommend it to others.
Dr. Larkin and her staff were wonderful. My child had a medical emergency 9 months ago, and they discussed the emergency and what actions we should take in the future. My husband and I drive 90 minutes one way for our child to be treated by Dr. Larkin because of her attention to every detail and professionalism.
They were very accommodating and very pleasent
Everyone was friendly as always! Love how everyone interacted with my son and spoke to him instead of just me.
Very pleased with this care provider as she is approachable and explains everything clearly.
Dr. Larkin has always been helpful and attentive to my child's healthcare needs and is the best of all allergists we have seen over the years. Very happy with my child's care.
we were there to be tested for a penicillin allergy. it was a long test but the doctors and nurses were all very helpful, kind and understanding. they did all they could to keep my kids upbeat and moving through te testing process. thank you!
Everything was great
I was very well pleased. A pleasant experience
Provider was excellent in caring for child and took her time to find the problems with his illnesses.
Dr. Larkin was very patient, listened to everything we said, was very compassionate and knowledgeable. She really made sure that all concerns were addressed and that the right treatment was provided in a holistic approach. I was very impressed at how she researched my son's records before she came into the exam room and was able to relate how treatments for other issues that my son has may be influenced by his allergies. She treated both my son and me with respect. Wonderful experience!
This was our first visit with Dr Larkin. she was wonderful. very nice, pleasant, friendly. she was patient and thorough. listened to all my concerns. she explained everything g very well. didn't rush is out of the office. said she would be calling in a week after she got the blood results to talk about our next step. she was wonderful
have always been very pleased with Dr Larkin and Reid the respiratory therapist who performs pulmonary function tests. my son feels at ease with both of them and we feel very blessed to have them as care providers
Dr. Larkin is wonderful! She listened to our concerns, provided care and explained results, treatment, and follow-up.
The doctor was not only concerned for my child, but also referred us to a social worker due to lack of sleep from my son's condition and her concern on my health and safety. Most doctors are only seeing the patient, not the caregiver.
Dr larkin is wonderful. I would recommend her to anyone. She made me feel at ease even when I was embarrassed. Even the student that was there was comforting.
Dr. Larkin was so down to earth, my daughter & I really liked her & her team! She made us feel welcomed & treated us like we were people & not a number!
Dr. Larkin was great.
