If these hours do not work with your schedule, please ask our front desk staff for the names of allergists where you can receive your injections. Some primary care offices will administer them as well as some urgent care centers. This will require a visit with the allergist and if approved then you may receive your allergy injections only there. Your allergy and asthma care will still remain with our office.

For infants at high risk, meaning they have eczema, food allergy, sibling with food allergy (especially peanut) or parents with allergies, the LEAP study showed that early introduction of peanut prevented a peanut allergy in most infants.
We offer an evaluation for these high-risk patients and if negative, then we can start patients safely on this preventative therapy and if borderline peanut reaction on allergy skin test, can offer a peanut challenge in the office.
Proper evaluation, dosing and frequency is important to make this therapy successful.
A positive allergy test alone does not determine a patient’s allergy status. The size of skin test and/or level of specific IgE, the patient’s age, specific food and history all go into allowing a board-certified allergist to use their training to determine if a patient has a food allergy. If needed, an oral challenge may be also utilized to help determine if a patient is truly allergic to a food an not unnecessarily avoiding a food. If your doctor does not offer an oral challenge as a possible option to determine your allergy status then they should not be testing you for allergies. Be educated, a fellowship trained board-certified allergist will be able to provide you the best possible allergy care.
Research results show both oral and sublingual therapy is helpful.
Another step in the right direction to bring such therapies to our patients soon.
