Ranging from slightly uncomfortable to life threatening, allergies and asthma can compromise quality of life. The Polyclinic’s allergy, asthma & clinical immunology specialty diagnoses and medically cares for pediatric and adult patients with allergy, asthma and related problems. Our specialists see patients for many reasons including:
- Suspected allergy problems, such as allergic rhinitis (hay fever), asthma, eczema, insect bites, anaphylaxis, hives, gluten, food, and medication allergies
- Recurrent and chronic sinusitis
- Delayed allergic contact dermatitis
- Evaluation of immune deficiencies
Consultation usually includes allergy testing, education and discussion of treatment options related to the patient’s allergic reaction. Continuing care for proven allergic conditions is provided along with allergy vaccination therapy (immunotherapy/allergy shots).
