A naturally-minded and
scientifically-grounded approach to immune system health.
I help busy families struggling with allergies & autoimmunity rediscover balance in their lives through simple sustainable & science-supported systems and become immune confident!Start Here
Too often we leave medical offices feeling frustrated,
confused & powerless.
It is because of everything I learned and went through as a patient that I have made it my mission to use my privilege as a physician to empower us to thrive in systems that at times feel like they are built to overwhelm.

Focus on what you have to offer and also be willing to admit when you need guidance or support.

Hi! My name is Kara Wada.
Mom. Board-certified pediatric and adult allergy, immunology and lifestyle medicine physician.
Certified-life coach. Autoimmune Patient.
It is because of everything I went through as a patient that I have made it my mission to empower us all to escape the overwhelm that accompanies an autoimmune diagnosis.
“Inflammation can be harmful but it also can be healing.”

Dr. Wada is awesome. She is very thoughtful & attentive to my concerns. Goes above & beyond to treat my condition. She has vast knowledge which enables her to think outside the box for possible causes, diagnoses, symptoms & treatments.
Dr. Wada was amazing! She was attentive, she genuinely cared, and gave me excellent resources to read about chronic illness. She is dedicated to seeing me get better, and having a doctor who believes something is going wrong in my body, even though we can't quite treat it yet, is a step. Being heard and validated has meant so much.
I am extremely impressed by the professionalism demonstrated by Dr. Wada. She was so easy to talk with and so knowledgeable and equipped to explain what the prior blood testing revealed and how we would proceed. Very impressive. I went into the appointment confused and concerned and left feeling much more confident.

As Your Physician - Ohio Only
I see patients and teach at the Ohio State University 3 days a week.
If you are interested in becoming my patient click the button below to be directed to the clinic website.
If you are seeking a second opinion or believe your situation may warrant a longer visit, please let our scheduling team know so we can avoid feeling rushed. All visits will be billed to insurance based on complexity and time.
I am unable to see patients via Telehealth if they are not located in Ohio due to licensing restrictions.
Out-of-state patients must be seen in the office located in Columbus, Ohio.
