Allergy Relief

Our Immunotherapy services will help patients identify and treat the cause of bothersome seasonal allergies that can often times be debilitating.

allergy testing medical concept


Immunotherapy desensitizes the body to allergens by introducing them to the body, via serum, in small quantities by injection or sublingual (under the tongue) drops. As treatment progresses, the amount of these allergens (also known as antigens) in the serum increases so the body's immune system learns to tolerate and then ignore them. The result is fewer allergy symptoms.

Allergy Drops

Allergy Drops have been a common allergy relief method throughout the world for over 60 years. Patients simply place a few drops of serum (the same serum used in allergy shots) under their tongue every day. A revisit to the healthcare provider is needed every 12 weeks for a refill and a quick follow-up. By the first follow-up, most patients enjoy a marked improvement. Within a few months patients should realize a significant reduction in the need for allergy medications. And, in four years, if you are like most patients you will experience complete remission of your environmental allergies.

Allergy Shots

Allergy shots have been used successfully to treat allergies in the U.S. for decades. Healthcare providers administer the shots in their offices on a regular basis, often weekly or bi-weekly. Health insurance policies usually cover many of the out-of-pocket costs associated with allergy shots.
