Many people suffer from allergies because their symptoms are not properly diagnosed. At Northwest ENT and Allergy Center, we take the guesswork out of allergy diagnosis and treatment. A proper allergy diagnosis is made by a professional that develops a specific treatment plan to minimize and possibly even eliminate your symptoms.
Our professionals work closely with patients to carefully diagnose conditions and develop a specific treatment plan to minimize and possibly even eliminate your symptoms.
What to expect at your visit
During your initial consultation at our office, your ENT physician will review your medical history, family medical history, and current or past symptoms. Then, depending on the situation, your doctor may recommend additional allergy testing offered conveniently at our five locations.
A skin test is a non-invasive procedure used to identify allergic reactions to many allergens at once, such as molds, pollen, pet dander, and dust mites.
Depending on your health history and symptoms, blood testing may be recommended in addition to or instead of skin testing.
The videos below show how a routine skin test is performed to diagnose allergies.
