Why I should I see an Allergist?

  • Allergists are able to diagnose patients with respect to having allergic, non-allergic or mixed symptoms, and breathing difficulties.  Appropriate therapy can therefore be recommended in consideration with patient needs.
  • Allergists can customize immunotherapy (allergy injection serum), which in studies has shown to be more effective clinically than low dose IT often used by general practice physicians who practice allergy.
  • Allergists recommend avoidance measures, which is an important part in the overall prevention and treatment of allergy.
  • Allergists improve quality of life and reduce health care costs.
  • Allergists are either internists, pediatricians, or medical/pediatric physicians who do a subspecialty fellowship in allergy and immunology.
