We look forward to helping you with your allergies and to guide you through the various treatment options. An allergy skin test is easy to perform and is pain free. This will give us immediate results that can help us pinpoint your allergies. We test for 45 of the most common environmental allergens in the Northeast region including, grasses, trees, weeds, dust, animals and molds. The goal of an allergy skin test is to identify the presence, type, and severity of allergies, which are an abnormal response your body has to certain substances in the environment. Allergy skin testing is typically performed on the forearm or back, and takes approximately 60 minutes. The test is done on both adults and children of most ages.
Please click on the link “How to Prepare for Your Allergy Test” and review prior to coming in for your scheduled appointment. It is important that you follow the instructions for allergy testing so that accurate results can be determined. Failure to do so may result in a return visit. If you have a history of asthma, you should bring your albuterol inhaler with you to your testing appointment. If after reading through the allergy skin testing instructions and medication guide, you have additional questions please contact the Allergy department at 978-997-1550 and we will be happy to assist you further.
