Comprehensive Allergy Testing

If you suffer from allergies, you’re not alone. In the United States, millions of people suffer from allergies. Whether you have food allergies or you’re allergic to pollen or pets, or something else, we can accurately identify the source. In fact, allergy testing today is more convenient and precise than ever. By determining your medical history and then performing relatively painless “skin prick” tests, we identify what triggers an allergic reaction.

Skin tests provide the fastest results. However, we usually do not give this test to young children. Instead, blood tests are just as effective. They often require a single needle prick. Still, there are many other types of allergy blood tests too. At your visit, our allergist will determine the appropriate test for you. Allergies exist in many forms and include:

  • Food Allergies
  • Skin Allergies
  • Dust Allergy
  • Insect Sting Allergy
  • Pet Allergies
  • Eye Allergies
  • Drug Allergies
  • Allergic Rhinitis
  • Latex Allery
  • Mold Allergy

Treatment for Allergic Asthma

One of the most common forms of asthma is allergic asthma. The same allergens that cause itchy eyes, sneezing, and other allergies symptoms in some people cause asthma attacks in others. Fortunately, allergic asthma is treatable. It involves recognizing the triggers that lead to an attack and learning how to prevent it or avoid those situations. However, we also offer effective medications to treat asthma sufferers.
