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

Conditions Treated

  • Asthma
  • Chronic Sinusitis and Sinus Disease
  • Recurrent Infections
  • Allergies
  • Food Allergies
  • Eosinophilic Diseases
  • Cough
  • Eczema and Allergic Skin Diseases
  • Pets or Animals Allergies

Procedures

  • 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.

Skin Test Policy

If you would like to be skin tested, please discontinue your antihistamines (i.e. zyrtec, claritin, benadryl, etc.) for at least five to seven days before your appointment. You may continue your asthma medications, including any necessary inhalers, Singulair™, and oral steroids.

If you are unable to discontinue your antihistamines, you may still undergo allergy testing via laboratory testing. Please inform our staff if you cannot stop your antihistamines prior to your visit.

Beta-Blocker Policy

If you are on a beta-blocker (i.e. atenolol, timolol, etc.), we are unable to perform a skin test. Please do not stop your beta-blockers without consulting the prescribing physician. As an alternative, patients will need to consent to laboratory testing.
