A Look at the Medical Services Provided by Asthma & Allergy SpecialistsSM
If you suffer from asthma or allergies, it’s important to work with an allergy doctor or immunologist who understands your unique needs and can develop a customized treatment plan. The personalized treatment programs offered by the allergy doctors of Allergy & Asthma SpecialistsSM emphasize prevention measures and closely monitored medication. We understand that each patient has different needs, and our allergy doctors will work closely with you to tailor a treatment plan that is just right for you. Here’s a look at some of our services:
- Numerous diagnostic services are available at our state-of-the-art practice. Your allergy doctor might recommend allergy skin testing to determine your food and particle triggers. The allergy doctor uses a multitest applicator to apply allergen extracts on your arms or back. The results are available within 20 minutes. We can also test for allergies to aspirin, latex, antibiotics, and other drugs. The pulmonary function test is another common diagnostic measure that evaluates your lung capacity. This test can benefit those who experience wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, and related symptoms.
- Allergy doctors often recommend immunotherapy to allergy and asthma sufferers. This is a highly effective means of “training” your immune system to tolerate your triggers. The allergy doctor administers precisely calculated amounts of allergen extracts by injection or orally. With either method, you can expect your symptoms to start diminishing within three to six months.
- If you have sensitivities or allergies to aspirin, you understand how frustrating it can be to treat common ailments like headaches. If you experience wheezing, shortness of breath, or even sinus infections and nasal congestion due to aspirin exposure, talk to your allergy doctor about aspirin desensitization.
