'Tis the Season to Start Sneezin'
It's official, spring has arrived. With spring comes pollen and with pollen, allergies. Did you know that an estimated one in five people suffer from allergies? Allergies are often the reason for missed school or work. Untreated, allergies often greatly reduce the quality of people's lives.
You don't have to live with the constant sneezing, sniffles and itchy eyes caused by allergies. Our doctors can identify your allergies and treat them. We're here to help you find relief.
Our offices will be closed on Monday, May 27th, in observance of Memorial Day. Due to the holiday closure we will be giving shots in the morning on Wednesday, May 29th, starting at 8:00 a.m. We will go back to our regular Wednesday shot hours the following week
New Allergy Shot (Immunotherapy) Software Program coming soon.
We are very excited about the upcoming enhancement to our patients' immunotherapy care. Earlier this year we purchased an immunotherapy software module from Rosch Visionary Systems (Rosch). This new, state of the art program will not only improve our shot department efficiency, but will also add additional safety measures beyond the "best practices" measures we currently have in place.
Patient Portal - Phase Two of Our New Website.
Our patient portal will be available for use in the near future. This will allow our patients to schedule their appointments, fill out patient forms and pay their bills online.

How Can We Help You?
| ||Nasal/Environmental Allergies |
Nasal allergies may also be referred to as hay fever or allergic rhinitis. This is an allergic reaction to elements in the environment, such as tree, grass and weed pollens, pet dander, molds and cockroaches. Individuals that are allergic to pollens may only be symptomatic at certain times of the year. People allergic to indoor allergens, such as mold, may experience symptoms all the time.

| ||Asthma |
Asthma is a chronic lung disease in which the lining of the airways becomes inflamed and swollen and muscle spasms restrict the flow of air to the lungs. It is a relatively common condition and the incidence of the disease has grown in recent years. Currently, it is estimated that close to 15 million Americans have asthma. Children account for a significant
portion of asthmatics. Asthmatic and allergic disorders rank at the top of childhood diseases. Click here to read more.
| ||Animal Allergies |
Pets can cause problems to allergic patients in several ways. Their dander, or skin flakes, as well as their saliva and urine, can cause an allergic reaction. The animal hair is not considered to be an allergen as many people believe. However, the hair or fur can collect pollen, dust, mold and other allergens which can cause additional allergic reactions.
