Allergy/Immunology


The Allergy and Immunology clinic is available to evaluate and treat patients with a wide range of allergic and immunologic disorders. Conditions commonly seen in the allergy clinic include but are not limited to: asthma, allergic rhinitis, anaphylaxis, atopic dermatitis, adverse drug reactions, food allergy, eosinophilic esophagitis, immune deficiency disorders, stinging insect allergy, acute and chronic urticaria and angioedema.

A full range of diagnostic testing, such as skin testing, spirometry, food and drug challenges, as well as patch testing, is available to patients from infancy to adulthood. Allergists will primarily manage allergic conditions such as asthma, allergic rhinitis and atopic dermatitis and are also able to offer specialty therapy such as subcutaneous immunotherapy and omalizumab (Xolair) injections.

Drug desensitization may also be applicable in certain situations such as Aspirin Exacerbated Respiratory disease (AERD). Immune system evaluations and management of primary immune deficiency is also performed in the clinic.

The first appointment consists of a thorough evaluation and treatment plan. Allergy testing will more than likely not be done at this visit.

Patients for whom Allergy/Immunology consultation has been requested may undergo diagnostic testing that is unique.

Information on skin testing and other common procedures performed in the clinic are listed in the Clinic/Patient Links area on the right hand side of this page.
