Diagnosis & Treatment
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
- Blood tests to evaluate immune system function
We offer a wide range of treatments for children with allergies and immunodeficiencies, and customize our treatment approach to your child's specific medical condition. Our therapies 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
If an environmental source is triggering the allergy, we explore ways you can control or eliminate the allergen.
