Stop Suffering from PANDA, PANS, or ITABI diseases.
What Are PANS, ITABI and PANDAS?
Pediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric syndrome, or PANS, is an episodic disorder in which children experience very sudden, full-blown Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), often causing extreme panic and other associated symptoms. Whereas most children with OCD experience a gradual onset of symptoms, children with PANS experience full intensity of symptoms within one or two days, often resulting in dramatic personality changes. When the emergence of these symptoms occurs in conjunction with a streptococcal infection, the illness is called PANDAS. PANS can sometimes be linked to other infections, such as Lyme Disease, mycoplasma pneumonia, mononucleosis, and the flu.
Why are PANS, ITABI, and PANDAS Difficult to Diagnose and Treat?
Because PANS and PANDAS are complex illnesses whose symptoms can disappear and reappear more severely over time, having your child’s illness diagnosed and treated correctly can be particularly frustrating. When your child is experiencing debilitating symptoms, you need a team of skilled and experienced medical practitioners who know how to comprehensively evaluate your child’s health and uncover the underlying cause of their illness.

PANS and PANDAS Diagnosis and Treatment
The skilled and experienced medical professionals at Bock Integrative understand how frightening it is for families to have their lives completely disrupted by a seemingly mysterious illness. For more than three decades, Dr. Kenneth A. Bock has been dedicated to helping children, teens and adults who are experiencing complex medical problems, including autoimmune diseases like PANS and PANDAS, realize a significant improvement in their well-being. Dr. Bock and Jennifer Petkos, MSN, FNP-BC, are a dedicated team of medical practitioners who have the knowledge and experience to competently diagnose and treat multi-symptom, multisystem medical problems, including PANS and PANDAS.
A Comprehensive Approach to PANS, ITABI, and PANDAS Treatment
The autoimmune disease experts at Bock Integrative Medicine take a comprehensive “whole person” approach to determine the root cause of your child’s illness. We don’t just try to manage PANS and PANDAS symptoms, but instead consider your child’s health history, genetics, environment, physical exam and lab test results, and symptoms to gain a clear picture of their illness. Dr. Bock’s decades of experience diagnosing complex medical conditions enables him to assess the information gathered about your child’s medical problem, with an emphasis on variables that can contribute to immune imbalance, to develop an evidence-based clinical diagnosis and individualized treatment plan. We take a multifaceted approach to the treatment of PANS and PANDAS. As such, your child’s treatment regimen may include conventional therapies like antibiotics as well as dietary and environmental modifications, nutritional and herbal supplements, detoxification modalities, infusion therapies, including IVIG, and other tools of integrative medicine that address imbalances that drive the autoimmune response and prolong the course of illness.

When our daughter very suddenly began having severe anxiety attacks and related OCD symptoms, we didn’t understand what was happening. We consulted many doctors, but Dr. Kenneth Bock was the best. Although we were scared and frustrated by our daughter’s illness, Dr. Bock’s comprehensive assessment of our daughter’s health and risk factors made us confident that he would find out what was wrong with her. Dr. Bock discovered that our daughter had a complex medical condition triggered by a dormant infection that caused her immune system to malfunction. He developed an individualized treatment plan that integrated traditional as well as more comprehensive treatment methods and restored balance to her immune system. The excellent team of medical providers at Bock Integrative was helpful and supportive throughout our daughter’s treatment. We’re so thankful to Dr. Bock and his team!
