Allergy & Immunotherapy Services
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.

- All patients will be screened prior to appointment for fever, cough, shortness of breath, cold/flu symptoms, red eyes, loss of smell/taste, and body aches. If you have traveled outside of the US, have been in contact with someone with Coronavirus, or you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, we kindly ask that you contact the office PRIOR to coming in for your injection.

- All patients are required to pre-medicate with an antihistamine leading up to their scheduled shot appointment as previously directed. In addition, patients should continue to bring their Epipen and albuterol inhaler if applicable.
- All patients are required to remain in the office for 20 minutes following their injection to allow for proper observation.
