To you, it’s congestion, itchy eyes, cough, wheezing, or sneezing, making you question whether a run through the park is worth it. But, to the board-certified allergists at Allergy & Asthma Specialists, it’s an opportunity to help patients regain control of their lives.
At Allergy & Asthma Specialists, they recognize that patients come to them because of the limitations due to their allergic or asthmatic conditions. Therefore, it’s their mission to provide patients with the best allergy and asthma care from the moment they walk in the door.
Every patient is unique, and their treatment options should be too. Allergy & Asthma Specialists patients can access the complete range of services available to diagnose and treat allergic diseases, asthma, recurrent infections, and eczema. In addition, the practice treats all age groups, from newborns to adults, to improve every patient’s quality of life.
This commitment to patients, plus providing advanced state-of-the-art care, exemplifies their motto:
“Setting the Gold Standard for Allergy and Asthma Care.”
Are you tired of only finding temporary relief?
If you find yourself time and again standing in the aisle of the drug store trying to sort out which over-the-counter allergy medication to try, you’re doing your health and your wallet a disservice. With so many options, finding the right combination to help you feel your best takes time. Even if you find one that does work, many patients have found that they can become less effective over time. In addition, over-the-counter medication helps the allergy symptoms but doesn’t get the root cause of your allergies. They also can have side effects like drowsiness, nervousness, increased blood pressure, headaches, insomnia, dry mouth, constipation, and blurred vision. The first step to finding long-term relief is understanding what is causing your allergic reactions.
Allergy & Asthma Specialists recommend testing to determine allergy triggers that cause your symptoms. Triggers are identified in one visit to Allergy & Asthma Specialists by allergy skin testing for grasses, trees, weeds, dust mites, animal dander, mold, and foods.
Results in One Visit for Allergy Testing
Every Allergy & Asthma Specialists office houses an inventory of over 100 allergens available for skin testing. After a thorough review of medical history and a medical examination by the allergist, your personalized testing panel of allergens is prepared and applied without needles. In 20 minutes, a positive reaction in the form of a hive may appear. The allergist evaluates the results and develops a treatment plan and environmental avoidance strategy for you and your lifestyle. Infants, children, and adults can be comfortably and reliably tested.
You don’t need to be experiencing any allergy symptoms at the time of your skin testing visit to be evaluated for allergies. Their skin testing methods will accurately determine what allergens cause your allergy symptoms, even if you’re not experiencing the symptoms.
Unique Treatment for Each Patient
If over-the-counter medications are not managing your symptoms, immunotherapy might be recommended. Immunotherapy, also known as allergy shots or drops, is one of the most effective means of treating allergies and asthma, often resulting in nearly complete relief of symptoms. Immunotherapy is a preventative treatment for an allergic response to allergens and treats the underlying cause of the allergic reaction; decongestants and antihistamines only treat the symptoms.
Immunotherapy involves administering gradually increasing doses of the allergens and helps your immune system build up your own natural immunity, making you less allergic.
Based on your skin testing results, their board-certified allergists develop your personalized prescription to begin immunotherapy. Allergy & Asthma Specialists offers three types of immunotherapy: Allergy injections, allergy drops, or allergy tablets. All allergy extracts for injections and drops are produced in the practice’s on-site lab under the supervision of board-certified allergists and according to the United States Rule 797 for sterile compounding guidelines. In addition, personalized extract prescriptions are formulated for each patient to ensure the utmost efficacy and safety, making Allergy & Asthma Specialists the area’s most trusted source for allergy extract.
When You Start Matters
The longer you wait, the more complicated it can be to treat your allergies. Sinus and ear infections could require antibiotics and steroid treatment. Sleep disorders and chronic fatigue begin due to disrupted sleep patterns caused by your allergy symptoms.
If you often experience allergy symptoms in the spring or fall, seeing an allergist and starting a treatment plan is essential to help you find relief sooner. Starting medication before you begin to feel allergy symptoms can help prepare your body for the coming season, potentially preventing your normal severity of symptoms.
