Oak Brook Allergists was established in 1962 by Dr. Joseph Cece, a Chicago-area allergy specialist. At the time, he was the only practicing allergist in DuPage County. Dr. Harold Leichenko, a colleague of Dr. Cece’s from Michael Reese Hospital, joined the practice shortly thereafter.
Dr. David J. Knysak joined Oak Brook Allergists in 1988. A clinical instructor at University of Michigan Medical Center before he entered private practice, Dr. Knysak’s allergy, asthma, and immunology expertise has been instrumental in the continuing success of Oak Brook Allergists. This was never truer than after Dr. Cece passed away in 1992 and Dr. Leichenko retired in 2003.
Dr. Raymond M. Pongonis Jr. joined Oak Brook Allergists in 2014. As a leading expert in food allergies, with a strong interest in pediatric patients, he has ably rounded out the robust complement of allergy and asthma treatments we are able to provide our patients.
Today, Oak Brook Allergists has a total of four offices, located in the “collar counties” of Illinois, bordering Chicago’s Cook County. Our patients are able to receive all of the medical services we offer at each Oak Brook Allergists office, whether they visit the office in Downers Grove, Elmhurst, Naperville, or Plainfield.
