Whether it is identifying and relieving the direct affects of respiratory allergies, literally affecting one’s ability to breathe, or whether allaying fears over possibilities of potential food, medication or insect allergies; we investigate and provide our patients the tools for controlling, or in some cases, reversing these complex inflammatory conditions.
What is most important, however, is the patient. Understanding the patient’s experience of allergies is essential. What matters most is the description of events from the patient’s point of view.
Why? Allergies are not limited to one “organ”. We treat allergies as they affect the upper airways (nasal passages, sinuses, ears, and throat), or the lower airways (lungs, bronchial tubes), the skin (eczema, hives), the gastrointestinal tract, or, in cases of severe allergies, allergic shock (“anaphylaxis”), which may involve dizziness, fainting, low blood pressure or worse.
We, therefore, need to see and care for patient as a whole; communication is essential. (We are not primary care providers – we urge you to identify and consistently follow up with someone you trust; there are a number of excellent clinicians in the area who we can recommend.)
