Depending on the severity of your allergy, Dr. Saadeh may recommend an Allergy “Syrum” or shot. Allergy A.R.T.S. is home to one of the only allergy clinics where syrums are unique to your allergies.

We’ve made getting allergy shots convenient with a direct entrance to our Immunotherapy Rooms.  You’ll be in and out quickly.

Some allergies disappear or moderate with time or treatment, but most patients require continued treatment to maintain a symptom-free life. A good doctor or allergist can prescribe a program that relieves much discomfort. Simply avoiding an allergen can solve some problems. For example, if chocolate is the allergen, the patient simply chooses to not eat it. Unfortunately, many allergens, such as pollen and dust, are unavoidable and require specific treatment.

Medications such as antihistamines or cortisone may relieve symptoms. Immunotherapy or allergy shots might also be an option. In this procedure, small doses of the offending allergen are injected into the body over a period of time, gradually building up the body’s tolerance to that allergen. It is important to continue treatment on a regular basis. Trust your allergist and stay on the program. Your body will thank you!


Symptom Gathering


Depending on the severity of your allergy, Dr. Saadeh may recommend an Allergy “Serum” or shot. Allergy A.R.T.S. is home to the only allergy clinic in our area where serums are mixed according to AAAAI standards.

Skin Testing

Process in which a liquid extract of the allergen is injected or “scratched” into the patient’s skin. Dependent upon the size, color, or induration (raising or hardening of the site), allergy to the applied substance can be confirmed along with the likely severity of the allergy.

Blood Tests

Safe identification of most food allergies. Usually reserved for confirming likely food allergens in combination with skin testing results, which affords the patient a more specific list of likely food allergies so fewer food restrictions are necessary during an elimination diet.
