We specialize in
allergy testing for children and adults with IgE testing, skin prick
testing, and skin endpoint titration testing. We offer two types of
immunotherapy to get rid of your allergies: subcutaneous immunotherapy
(SCIT) – also known as “allergy shots”,
and sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) – also known as
“allergy drops.” Allergy shots are performed in the
office, while allergy drops are taken by you at home and without
needles. Allergy drops is the preferred method for treating children,
elderly, asthmatics, or individuals who do not have the time to come to
the office. Allergy drops is the preferred method of allergy
immunotherapy in many countries in Europe for over 20 years, and is
safe and effective.
Asthma is a chronic
pulmonary condition that is due to inflammation of the air passages.
Symptoms are characterized by chest tightness, shortness of breath,
wheezing, coughing, and decreased exercise tolerance. Pulmonary
function testing and Spirometry can help determine the degree of
asthma. Treatments include trigger avoidance, fast-acting inhalers,
slow-acting inhalers, steroid treatment, or nebulizer treatments.
