Asthma and allergy clinics are medical centers specially designed to treat patients whose immune systems react abnormally to one or more substances present in the environment. Some cater to specific segments of the population, such as children, adults, or the elderly, while others focus exclusively on a particular category of allergy. McGovern Allergy and Asthma Clinic is comprehensive in that we are able to serve allergic individuals of all ages and conditions.
Those with moderate to severe allergies typically end up spending quite a bit of time at their allergy clinics. If immunotherapy is prescribed, the patient must visit the clinic on a regular basis, often one or more times a week, for a period of several years. For this reason, it is important to select a clinic that is not only convenient to your location, but whose physicians are knowledgeable and adept at addressing patients' concerns.
At McGovern Allergy and Asthma Clinic, we are proud to offer a flexible program of allergy treatment. Unlike many other clinics, we give patients the option of taking home a month's supply of immunotherapy injections, or antigens, so shots can be self-administered outside of the office. This system represents an excellent way for those living far from the clinic to receive top-notch care.
If you or your child are experiencing symptoms that may indicate an allergy, we urge you to schedule an allergy test with one of our specialists. Aside from analysis of your medical history, these tests, which typically involve small amounts of allergen being introduced into your system, are the first step in diagnosing your allergies. McGovern Allergy and Asthma Clinics is considered a top facility for such testing, due to our extensive resources and staff of expert physicians.
