Dr. Young is pleased to offer two different allergy testing services done right in the office. We offer blood allergy testing in which only one blood sample must be obtained to identify allergies a host of allergens and foods. A new form of allergy testing and treatment can now allow families to give oral allergy treatments at home with only one needle stick for blood testing and two office visits per year. The use of patient-specific allergy drops daily below the tongue is known as Sublingual Immunotherapy or SLIT. SLIT has been used throughout the world for 60 years and is now routinely used in Europe for the treatment of allergies.
Dr. Young has also teamed up with United Allergy Services to provide allergen immunotherapy a form of treatment aimed at decreasing your sensitivity to substances called allergens. It involves introducing an increasing amount of an allergen to a patient over several months. It creates a custom therapy specifically to address your unique symptoms and the cause of your allergy issues.
