Asthma and Allergy Testing
Allergies and asthma can both present at any age and can be triggered by various factors. For the best chances at treating or managing the symptoms, it’s important to get tested as soon as you notice any symptoms. If not properly treated, these conditions can cause asphyxiation which can lead to hospitalization or worse. Symptoms can include the following:
- Chest Pain or Tightness
- Nasal Congestion
- Shortness of Breath
- Swollen Throat or Tongue
How the Allergy Testing Process Works
Get to know the specifics of your allergies by taking advantage of our allergy testing services. Once we have a diagnosis, we can discuss your treatment and management options, including allergy shots, pills, drops, or allergen avoidance.
When you visit us for testing, our medical staff will perform one of two tests—a blood test or skin test—depending on your specific situation. The skin test is performed by either pricking the surface of your skin with different allergens or injecting the allergens under the skin. We can test many different types of allergens at once and accurately determine which one is the cause of your symptoms. If a skin test can’t be performed for whatever reason, we also offer blood tests, which diagnose a blood sample in the lab. Whichever test you need, our professionals perform it with care and compassion so you stay as comfortable as possible.
