Environmental Control of your Allergens
Allergic conjuctivitis or itchy eyes affects 2/3 of the United States. If you have itchy eyes through the sesasons or year round - you need to come to clinic and get relief of symptoms.
Drug allergies occur very commonly to drugs such as Penicillin, other antibiotics, anesthetics, topical medications and can be induced by any drug. We do penicillin testing and other medication challenges in the office. So if you think you have had an allergic drug reaction - let's get you tested and clear your clinical picture.
Anaphylaxis is a life threatening allergic reaction and can occur secondary to food allergy reacttions and even insect stings. We want you and your family to be safe. We offer food allergy testing and evaluation as well as testing for insect venom reactions.
Chronic sinusitis and nasal polyps are commonly seen in conjuction with allergic rhinitis in patients. Patients who have allergies are 3x more likely to have chronic sinusitis, chronic otitis media and chronic bronhitis along with the development of nasal polyps. Treatment of allergic rhinitis can improve these symptoms. Come and get tested and fully evaluated. We can help improve your symptoms.
Asthma is very prevalent in the United States. It affects 18.7 million adults and 7 million pediatric patients and about 9 people die from uncontrolled asthma each day. Our goal is to get asthma well controlled in all our pediatric and adult patients with medication management and education. Educational tools we provide include an asthma action plan and peak flow teaching and monitoring. We want all our asthmatic patients to be able to play sports, and do any activities that they want and not be limited by their asthma. To read more about asthma please follow the links below.

Exercise induced bronchospasm can be seen in up to 90% patients with asthma. Exercise induced bronchospasm can be well controlled and should not limit the exercise capability of any child or adult. Come and get fully evaluated and treated.
Patients with recurrent infections need to be evaluated for possible underlying allergic rhinitis that can predispose them to infections. They should also be evaluated to make sure their immune system is fully intact and able to fight off infections. Come and get evaluated we can improve your quality of life.
Acute and chronic urticaria/hives are commonly seen. They are often viral induced and 70% can be idiopathic in etiology. We can treat your hives and get you better and investigate for possible etiology. We even offer Xolair (Omalizumab) in the treatment of chronic urticaria.
Eosinophilic Esophagitis/gastroenteritis is a newer diagnosis in the field of allergy. People often present with food getting stuck in their throat that often ends with an emergency department visit with subsequent biopsy that reveals the diagnosis. It occurs in children and adults. We offer food allergy testing and management and treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis.
Food protein enterocolitis or vomiting and possibly bloody stools that occurs with food introduction occurs commmonly in the pediatric population. Food allergy has to be ruled out in these pediatric patients.
Contact Dermatitis is commonly seen with nickel allergy, other metals and even topical agents like neosporin and presents with a rash. We can evaluate and treat contact dermatitis.
Atopic Dermatitis/Eczema affects the pediatric population very commonly. Food allergy can be implicated in hard to treat eczema. we offer food allergy testing and treatment.
We are seeing a rise in the prevalence of food allergy in our pediatric patients and the answer tends to be multifactorial - genetics plays a role, less wholesome diet with more preservatives, the delay in the introduction of high allergy foods in our pediatric patients and the hygiene hypothesis. Although we do not have a cure at this time- we join Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) in the goal of educating our patients and keeping them safe.

Mastocytosis can present many times as allergic reactions with flushing of the skin and extreme pruritis along with rashes. We will evaluate, manage and treat mastocytosis.
Hereditary Angioedema can present with abnormal swelling episodes of the abdomen, lip, eyes without predisposing trigger. Time to diagnosis often can be years. We are happy to evaluate and treat hereditary angioedena.
Any patient with history of recurrent infections needs full evaluation of their immune system with laboratoty testing. We can fully evaluate and manage complex disorders of the immune system.
