Travis Sifers, MD, is a board-certified allergy and immunology specialist at The Center for Allergy & Immunology in Kansas City and Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Dr. Sifers is board certified in internal medicine, pediatrics, and allergy and immunology.
Dr. Sifers was born and raised in the Kansas City metro area. He comes from a family of physicians and other medical professionals, and practicing medicine has been a life-long goal. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Kansas (KU), where he majored in history along with the requisite premedical studies. Dr. Sifers pursued his fellowship training at the Icahn School of Medicine in New York City, home to the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute and leading physician-scientists in both allergy and clinical immunology. He has considerable exposure to the diagnosis and management of primary immunodeficiencies, including the use of experimental therapies in pulmonary and gastrointestinal complications associated with common variable immunodeficiency.
He has presented and published research on a variety of topics in food allergy and primary immunodeficiency and remains actively engaged in clinical research. It is ideal for internal medicine-pediatric doctors to subspecialize because allergists are trained to treat adults and children irrespective of their primary training. But it is more personal for Dr. Sifers. It fits his personality and fulfills his intellectual curiosity. Dr. Sifers is thrilled to return to Kansas City. The Center for Allergy & Immunology is among the few private practices at the vanguard of managing allergic and immunologic disease, including mast cell disorders, and he is blessed to become a part of that. He loves this city and the people who make it what it is. He is excited to move home and be close to family again.
He is committed to patient-centered care. A 2018 study found that patients had a median of eleven seconds to communicate their agenda before being interrupted. He believes one can’t practice good medicine that way. Dr. Sifers wants patients to feel heard and understood. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Sifers, call the office or book online today.
