To determine the cause of your child’s symptoms, we offer an array of diagnostic tests, such as:

  • Thorough medical history, family history, and physical examination
  • Skin testing for environmental allergies
  • Pulmonary function testing for asthmatics
  • Rhinoscopy for patients with chronic nasal symptoms
  • Blood tests to evaluate immune system function

How We Treat Allergies and Immunodeficiencies

We offer a wide range of treatments for children with allergies and immunodeficiencies, including the most effective medications based on the findings of the latest clinical studies. We customize our treatment approach to your child's specific medical condition, offering therapies that may include:

  • The latest and most effective corticosteroids (anti-inflammatory medications for patients with asthma)
  • Bronchodilators to ease breathing
  • Immunotherapy (allergy shots and under-the-tongue treatments), which can help your child develop a tolerance to allergens
  • Antihistamines

If an environmental source is triggering the allergy, we explore ways you can control or eliminate the allergen.
