Allergy and Immunology

Allergy and Immunology is a medical specialty that treats allergic diseases and issues affecting your immune system.

At AdvantageCare Physicians, our Allergy and Immunologists can diagnose, treat, and manage a number of conditions, including:

  • Adverse drug or food reactions
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Eczema
  • Gastrointestinal disorders from food allergies
  • Hay Fever
  • Hives
  • Immune deficiency diseases
  • Insect stings
  • Rhinitis
  • Sinusitis

Patients should see an Allergy and Immunologist if they have chronic sinus infections, nasal congestion, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, or asthma affecting their quality of life. Our Allergy and Immunologists use a number of tests to determine a patient’s allergies, such as:

  • Blood test
  • Drug and food hypersensitivity
  • Skin tests
  • Spirometry
  • Pulmonary function testing

In addition to treating occasional stings and adverse reactions, our specialists are able to offer a more systematic approach to allergy management for those that suffer from chronic allergies. After examination and testing, our providers can provide treatments that may include preventative medications or immunotherapy. These treatments can help patients overcome or prevent future allergy problems.
