Did You Know…

  • Allergic diseases affect 1 in 5 Americans, and about 36 million people in the U.S. have seasonal allergies
  • 20.3 million Americans report having asthma, and more than 70% of people with asthma also suffer from allergies.
  • Immune system malfunctions can cause a wide range of conditions, including allergy, arthritis, and cancer.

If allergies, asthma, or immune problems are making your life difficult – We Can Help!

Our Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology office concentrates on diagnosing and treating children and adults with these health issues. Our practice is built around you and your needs. We provide the excellent specialized care you expect, along with the fast, friendly, convenient service you deserve. We accept all major health insurance, and see patients via physician referrals or self-referrals, as their insurance permits. Here’s a closer look at what we offer.

For Patients with Allergies

We diagnose and treat a wide range of allergies, including:

  • Allergic conditions of the nose, sinuses, eyes, and ears
  • Allergic diseases of the skin, such as eczema
  • Food allergies
  • Insect venom allergies and anaphylaxis
  • Hereditary and acquired angioedema, a dangerous swelling of the soft tissues of the aerodigestive tract (air and food passages)
  • Gastroesophageal reflux
  • Eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EGE), a condition frequently associated with food allergies

How We Diagnose

We use a variety of methods to diagnose allergies. Quintip® technology by Hollister-Stier Laboratories is a patient-friendly, innovative skin testing technique. It makes testing significantly more comfortable, accurate, and reproducible than more traditional scratch testing. We also offer an array of laboratory tests, including RAST (blood) testing for food and environmental allergens.

How We Treat

Allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots) is one of the better options for patients with multiple and severe allergies and for patients who have exhausted all drug-based approaches to therapy. Patients receive shots containing gradually increasing amounts of allergen. For example, if you are allergic to pollen, your vaccinations will include pollen allergens. The end result is that you are less sensitive to allergen exposure.

We also educate patients on how to avoid allergens and better control their environment. We provide nutritional advice or referrals to a nutritionist in the case of severe food allergies.
