The team at The Allergy & Environmental Treatment Center, LLC understands allergy appointments can make potential (and current) patients feel uneasy. You’ve probably heard of or have seen the outcomes of an allergy visit from a close friend or relative—skin pricks, testing reactions, slight discomfort. Despite some of the very minimal side affects that accompany skin tests, the procedure itself can provide a comprehensive solution to your allergy problems, and most importantly, is nothing to be scared of!
Customized treatment regimens developed by specialists at The Allergy & Environmental Treatment Center, LLC are incredibly effective and can reduce allergy symptoms to develop an overall increased quality of life. Regardless, developing this plan takes time, patience and extensive testing protocols. During your first visit at The Allergy & Environmental Treatment Center, LLC, you can expect to fill out patient forms (available here) and meet with your designated allergy coordinator.
One of the most important things to remember is how long the process actually takes. Most websites and blogs describe an allergy appointment as an approximately two-to-three hour endeavor. Although this may be true for the first appointment, it certainly doesn’t represent the testing process as a whole.
At times, follow-up testing is needed to produce the most accurate results, especially if you experience a “delayed reaction” during your initial skin test. We can assure you the medical professionals at The Allergy & Environmental Treatment Center, LLC will get to the bottom of your situation.
What happens after the test is determined entirely on your personal results. If an allergy or allergies are present after the tests, we may start you on a prescribed course of immunotherapy if necessary to help your immune system recover. Immunotherapy is a dose-specific allergy extract (allergen shot) administer in scheduled dosages to relieve allergy symptoms.
