Allergy skin testing
Allergy skin testing involves exposing skin to 40 of the most common inhalent allergens for this area and 16 food allergens, measuring the reaction. The testing is done in the clinic and usually lasts about one hour. These tests help determine what may cause allergic reactions.
Immunotherapy (allergy shots)
Immunotherapy, or allergy shots, is a way to decrease sensitivity to allergens, the substances that trigger allergies when patients are exposed to them. Patients receive weekly allergy shots with increasing amounts of allergen each week, and over a period of two to three years. The goal is to achieve long-lasting allergy relief after treatment is complete. Although foods are tested for, we do not provide treatment for them.
Sublingual therapy (allergy drops).
Sublingual immunotherapy, or allergy drops, desensitizes patients to their allergies through medication taken under the tongue in a liquid form rather than through an injection or shot, making allergy drops an excellent alternative for allergy sufferers young and old.
