Identifying a particular allergen is the first step in our treatment process. By correctly identifying the allergen, we are able to proceed with the proper treatment plan. Our services include:
Environmental and Food Allergen Testing | Laboratory Testing for Allergies | Allergy Immunotherapy (Allergy Shots) | Pulmonary (Lung) Function Testing | Patch Testing for Contact Dermatitis | Immune Evaluations (Laboratory Test) | Oral Challenges for Food Allergies | Penicillin Skin Testing | Rapid Strep Testing and Throat Cultures | Influenza Vaccine (Flu Shots) and Influenza Testing (Flu Tests) | Sinus Cultures | Evaluation of Eczema and Other Skin Rashes | Evaluation of Chronic Sinus Disease
- Chronic Sinusitis and Sinus Disease
- Recurrent Infections
- Food Allergies
- Eosinophilic Diseases
- Eczema and Allergic Skin Diseases
- Pets or Animals Allergies
- Skin testing: Allergy skin testing is done without needles or blood draws. We use a sterilized technique for prick placement. All results are read by the physician or physician assistant after 15 minutes of placement.
- Fractional Exhaled Nitric Oxide (FENO) test: The FENO is a test to measure airway inflammation in those patients with a cough, respiratory issues, or shortness of breath.
- Bronchospasm Evaluation/ Pulmonary Function Test: The PFT is done to determine rate of airflow through large and small lung airways. This test is suitable for those patients with a cough, shortness of breath and/or asthma.
- Patch testing: A patch test evaluates for contact dermatitis from various products and chemicals that are commonly found in the home and/or workplace. The patch is placed on day 1 and read on day 4.
- Strep test: Rapid strep test and throat culture are done to determine if a patient has strep throat.
- Flu test: A test for influenza A or B is done in the office to determine if a patient has the flu.
Allergy shots (immunotherapy): Allergy shots (SCIT) is available for those patients who need more escalated therapy than OTC allergy medications to control their allergy symptoms.
- Xolair therapy: Xolair (omalizumab) is a biologic drug that is administered to those patients with chronic urticaria (hives) and/or asthma. The physician will discuss xolair as an option if it applies to you.
- Food challenges: Based on lab / skin test results and clinical history, we perform supervised food challenges.
- Oral immunotherapy/food challenges: Based on patient's history and allergy testing results, we perform OIT for milk and eggs.
