What is Immunotherapy?
Allergen immunotherapy is a form of treatment aimed at decreasing your sensitivity to allergens, by introducing increasing amounts of the allergen to a patient over several months. We have an 85-95% efficacy rate with children and allergen immunotherapy has been shown to prevent the development of asthma.
It is safe, effective, and convenient. We offer 10-4 treatment. You will be allowed to do these injections at the convenience of your home and only be required to visit our office 10 times the first year and 4 times the subsequent years vs 1 week in-office injections.
Does My Insurance Cover Allergy Testing and Immunotherapy?
