Allergy Screenings

Allergy screenings, or an allergy test, is performed to see what allergens are causing an allergic reaction. We use needle-less scratch testing that not only is less painful than intradermal testing, but we believe it to be more accurate due to a reduced dermographic response. Our allergy specialists can test for 58 of the most common airborne allergens and 50 food allergens. Through allergy testing, we can determine whether your symptoms are due to an allergic response or something different. If airborne testing is positive, we will develop a treatment plan that is designed with your specific needs in mind.

Allergy Treatment

If the allergy screening reveals any allergies, we will determine which allergy treatment would be best for you and your lifestyle. We offer several allergy treatment options, from allergy medication to allergy immunotherapy. Allergy medication can include over-the-counter medication or prescription medication, depending on what our allergy specialists recommend. Allergy immunotherapy is a treatment process that uses controlled allergy shots to create immunity to your allergy over time.

Sublingual Immunotherapy

Sublingual Immunotherapy helps to relieve your allergy symptoms without the use of shots. If you are looking for a non-invasive allergy treatment option, Sublingual Immunotherapy might be the right option for you. This non-invasive allergy treatment option works by consuming small, safe doses of the allergen to build up your tolerance, which, in return, will reduce the severity of your allergy symptoms.

Skin allergies include hives, eczema, angioedema, and more. Through each of these skin allergies, there are various treatments to relieve your skin from feeling itchy, red, and bumpy. Our allergy treatment specialists can help evaluate, test, and provide treatment options for you. Please note that if you ever experience hives all over your body or difficulty breathing, you should see a doctor right away.

Sleep Apnea Tests

Sleep apnea is a serious sleeping disorder that causes breathing to stop and start repeatedly. The symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, episodes in which you stop breathing during sleep, gasping for air during sleep, awakening with a dry mouth, morning headaches, difficulty staying asleep, excessive daytime sleepiness, difficulty paying attention while awake, and irritability. If you are facing any of these symptoms, please view our sleep apnea test page below or contact us if you would like to schedule a sleep apnea test appointment.
