Allergy evaluation appointments with the doctor are offered upon request. Allergy testing is also offered.
Environmental Allergy testing may be recommended for our patients with a family history of allergies, seasonal or chronic runny nose, stuffy nose, sneezing, itchy or watery eyes, post nasal drainage, cough, vomiting, asthma, eczema, or sinus infections. Food Allergy testing is also offered to our patients who may have had reactions to foods. We perform the skin prick testing in office but the doctor may also order blood tests to confirm any food allergies.
By doing allergy tests, results will show what your child’s likely triggers are. Environmental recommendations may be given or medication changes suggested. Your doctor may recommend a referral to an allergist. We do not yet offer immunotherapy in this office.
We provide a packet of information that will help you prepare for testing. It includes a list of medications your child should avoid 4 days prior to the Allergy testing appointment.
If you are interested in having your child tested, please speak with your doctor at your child’s next appointment.
