Advanced testing and treatments stop your allergy troubles
Abingdon ENT's Allergy & Sinus Center is a professional corporation devoted to helping patients of any age with their allergy needs. We believe in delivering high quality, state-of-the-art, compassionate, and technologically sound healthcare services.
We have a variety of skin testing methods available for the diagnosis of inhalant allergies (dust, animal dander, mites, pollen, and mold). The preferred method of allergy testing at our Allergy & Sinus Center is Modified Quantitative Testing (MQT). This type of testing is typically done on the arms and consists of a blend of skin prick testing and intradermal testing. In some cases, we also offer RAST (blood) testing.
When avoidance and/or medications are not adequately controlling symptoms, immunotherapy is the best treatment option. Traditional immunotherapy is via injections (allergy shots). We offer flexible injection hours:
Monday 8:00 - 11:30 & 1:00 - 4:00
Tuesday 8:00 - 5:30
Wednesday 8:00 - 11:30 & 1:00 - 4:00
Thursday 8:00 - 5:30
Friday 8:00 - 11:30 & 1:00 - 3:30
The newer technique of sublingual immunotherapy (oral allergy drops) is proving effective and in some cases a better alternative than injection immunotherapy. Sublingual immunotherapy is a daily treatment that can be done safely in the privacy of your home.
Immunotherapy can bring significant relief within a few months, but may require 2-5 years. In some cases, it may be necessary to continue treatment indefinitely. Most patients who receive immunotherapy experience significant improvement or complete relief of their symptoms.
If you or your loved on is suffering from allergies, asthma, or frequent sinus infections, we are confident that we can improve the quality of your life and health! Call us today to schedule and appointment.
