An allergy occurs when your body reacts negatively to something that is not typically harmful.
The immune system is the body's way of preventing illness, which is weakened in some people due to illness, medication, or other factors.
Conditions We Treat
Allergists – doctors specializing in treating allergies – provide comprehensive care and treatment for a wide range of allergy-related conditions including:
- Ear infections
- Nasal congestion
Before your doctor can provide an appropriate treatment or recommendation for handling your allergy-related condition, we first must identify if a specific allergy is causing symptoms. You doctor may preform the following:
- Skin patch testing
- Journaling – Keeping track of symptoms and irritations to determine the root cause
- Physical exam
- Review of medical history
- Spirometry test to measure to determine lung health
Managing your Asthma
There is no cure for asthma. It can often be controlled by staying away from triggers. And by taking medicines as prescribed by your healthcare provider.
Monitoring symptoms is an important part of asthma care, as well as being prepared when exposed to allergens. We use our expertise and experience to formulate an Asthma Action Plan that's tailored to your individual conditions and will help you prepare for situations that trigger allergic reactions.
