The Allergy Evaluation

It is the desire of this office to provide our patients with the highest quality allergy care in the most friendly, efficient manner possible.  This information pamphlet will endeavor to answer some of the questions most frequently asked by our patients.

The purpose of the Initial Work-Up is to establish whether the symptoms are allergic in nature.  A questionnaire has been sent which should be filled out in detail at home prior to the visit, consulting labels where appropriate, and carried back with you (not mailed) to your first visit.  The physician will take a thorough history, then a physical examination will be performed, and appropriate laboratory studies and allergy testing will be initiated.  A second visit will be scheduled to complete the allergy testing, to review the laboratory results and to summarize the entire evaluation and formulate a plan to treat the problem. A full summary letter will be sent to your referring physician. Follow-up visits will be recommended periodically to facilitate the management of your problem.
