Dr. Gergits reviews your medical history and talks with you about your symptoms and when they appear. If your symptoms clearly indicate a specific allergy, he may recommend a plan to avoid your allergens and treat your symptoms with antihistamines.
If your symptoms don’t improve, you already had severe symptoms, or your suspected allergens may cause an anaphylactic reaction, Dr. Gergits may perform allergy testing right away.
A skin prick test is done in the office. The test only takes 15 minutes, then your allergens are identified, and he can customize your treatment.
Some patients may be good candidates for immunotherapy. This treatment is commonly known as allergy shots, but at Sinus & Allergy Wellness Center, most patients get their immunotherapy in the form of allergy drops that go under the tongue.
If you have allergy symptoms, call Sinus & Allergy Wellness Center or book an appointment online.
