Our allergy staff provides state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment for airborne and food allergies, under the direction of Dr. William Reisacher, a board-certified and fellowship-trained general otolaryngologist and otolaryngic allergist, and Melissa Mathurin, LPN, a Clinical Research Nurse Specialist.

We offer non-invasive, needle-free allergy screening for adults and children. A full range of advanced skin testing services are available along with blood testing when skin testing is not possible or appropriate.

For the treatment of airborne and food allergies, we offer professional counseling for environmental control strategies along with medications and dietary modifications when necessary. We offer traditional allergy injections administered in the office. As an alternative to injections we also offer Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT) in which drops are placed under the tongue on a daily basis from the comfort of your home and we offer Oral Mucosal Immunotherapy (OMIT) in which a specialized toothpaste is used.

Most insurance plans are accepted. To make an appointment, please call (646) 962-2093.

About Allergy Screening

Allergy screening can generally be completed within 15 minutes. It is important to refrain from using medications containing antihistamines one week prior to testing if possible. These include over-the-counter cold remedies and over-the-counter allergy medicine, including allergy eye drops. If this is not possible, blood testing can still be performed. Nasal steroid sprays do not have to be stopped prior to testing. In general, airborne and food allergies are tested on separate days.
