Dr. Dunn is a board-certified physician in pediatrics and allergy/immunology.

He trained at CHKD for his pediatric residency and fell in love with the specialty of allergy and immunology after working in the allergy division at CHKD.

He moved to the Pacific Northwest after that, and was thrilled at the recent opportunity to return to CHKD.

He sees the full spectrum of conditions, including asthma, eczema, food allergies, hives, swelling, immunodeficiency, and immune dysregulation. He strives to incorporate evidence-based recommendations in evaluating and managing allergic and immunologic diseases.

Dr. Dunn and his family are thrilled to grow roots in this community. Outside of medicine, he enjoys being outdoors, hiking, and exploring with his family. On his days off, he will likely be found cooking or baking and enjoying the science behind food and nutrition.
