Allergy, Asthma, Sinus, and Immunology

Helping you combat allergens

Allergies
Normally, our immune system protects us from harmful viruses and bacteria. Sometimes, our bodies can mistake normally harmless substances for dangerous invaders, and the body's defense systems go on the attack unnecessarily. It's like "friendly fire" on the battlefield. 

Common triggers include dust mites, pets, mold spores, pollens, and foods, such as peanuts and shellfish. 

Accurate diagnosis has three parts: 1) a detailed allergy history; 2) allergy testing; and 3) specialist knowledge of the complex relationship between allergy history and testing. Simply getting an allergy test will leave you with only a partial diagnosis. Treatments also involve three parts: 1) avoiding whatever is causing the allergic reaction; 2) taking medication; and 3) getting Allergy Vaccine Therapy (AVT, also known as "allergy shots"). These three often work togehter, because avoiding the trigger completely is often not possible, and medications don't provide long-lasting benefit. When allergies interfere with normal functioning and when avoiding the triggers or taking medications are not practical, allergy shots may be right for you.

Other Ailments
We can also diagnose and treat issues that may or may not be related to allergies, such as asthma, and problems of the immune system, such as autoimmune diseases and immunodeficiency diseases. Smoking cessation services are also offered.
