Tri-State Allergy and Asthma LLC offers the best services in the industry with leading edge technology.
Allergy Skin Testing (environmental and food)
Skin is exposed to suspected allergy-causing substances or allergens and observed for signs of an allergic reaction.
This procedure along with your history helps confirm whether certain exposures are causing your symptoms.
Allergy testing takes about 20-60 minutes.
These tests help confirm delayed-type reactions and may require several office visits.
Venom (Bee/Stinging Insect) Testing
Skin is exposed to venoms including Honey Bee, Wasp, Yellow Jacket, White-faced Hornet, and Yellow-faced Hornet.
This procedure along with your history will help determine whether venom immunotherapy will be beneficial.
Venom testing may take 30-90 minutes.
Spirometry/Pulmonary Function Tests
This test helps diagnose certain lung conditions and is done in the office.
Challenges (Medications and Foods)
The suspected allergen is introduced gradually in increasing amounts in a monitored environment. Challenges are a method to rule out suspected allergies to food or medication that the patient has been avoiding, opening up further options.
