Allergy Testing

 

We provide allergy testing and immunotherapy. The Test is a “needle free-pain free” percutaneous (skin scratch) test that tests for the 70 most common regional allergies at one time.  Once the test develops on the patient’s back it reveals three important pieces of information to the medical provider: first, that the patient is allergic, second, what the patient is allergic to, and third, the degree to which the patient is allergic.

 

The subcutaneous immunotherapy is injected into the patient each week on the same day at the same time by the provider.  The patient must then remain in the office for at least 15 minutes under observation for anaphylactic shock.  The sublingual immunotherapy is placed under the patient’s tongue by the patient in the convenience and privacy of their home twice a day each day.   Most patients opt for the sublingual immunotherapy because of the ease of use, safety, and efficacy as established by decades of clinical studies.
