Allergy Testing

Allergies sometimes occur as a mild nuisance, but some types can cause potentially life-threatening reactions. Knowing what you’re allergic to through testing can help ensure that you get treatment for allergies.
We provide allergy testing for patients in Boca Raton, Florida. Our clinical team also offers advice on avoiding allergens to reduce reactions.

Allergy Testing Q & A

Why do I have allergies?
Your body has an allergic reaction to something harmless, such as pet dander, when your immune system designates it as a threat. When this happens, your immune system makes antibodies and releases chemicals, including histamine, into your bloodstream. These chemicals cause the allergic reactions you experience, such as sneezing, hives, or breathing problems.
What are the symptoms of allergies?

The exact symptoms you experience with allergies depends on the type of allergen you’ve been exposed to. Some allergens affect your respiratory system, while others mainly affect your skin or digestive system. Some common signs of an allergic reaction include the following:

· Coughing and wheezing

· Sneezing

· Runny nose

· Itchy, watery eyes

· Diarrhea

· Hives

· Breathing problems if your airway swells

What kinds of allergens are there?
You might be allergic to one or more of the following allergens:

· Outdoor allergens, such as pollen, ragweed, and grass

· Mold

· Pet dander

· Dust mites

· Certain foods, such as peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, or soy

· Insect stings

· Certain antibiotics, such as penicillin

· Certain chemicals found in household cleaning and personal hygiene products

What kinds of allergy tests are there?
Our clinical team uses different types of allergy tests to help patients discern their allergies. Depending on which symptoms you have and when you have them, they might recommend a skin test for allergies. They may also order a blood test if a skin test doesn’t give definitive results.
What can I expect from a skin test?
When you have a skin test done for allergies, our clinical team might inject a small amount of the allergen under your skin to see if there’s any reaction to it. Another method involves placing a drop of liquefied allergen on your skin and pricking this area. If you’re allergic to the allergen, your skin will develop a reddish bump in the affected area.
What are allergy treatments?
The kind of treatment you’ll need depends on the type of allergy you have. Our team might recommend avoiding allergens if possible and using nonprescription medications to relieve sneezing, itchy eyes, and other respiratory symptoms. For persistent allergies or for allergens you can’t avoid, he might recommend allergy shots to desensitize your immune system.

Cancer Screening

Screening means checking your body for cancer before you have symptoms. Getting screening tests regularly may find breast, cervical, and colorectal (colon) cancers early, when treatment is likely to work best. Lung cancer screening is recommended for some people who are at high risk.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) supports screening for breast, cervical, colorectal (colon), and lung cancers as recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.

Breast Cancer Screening

Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before there are signs or symptoms of the disease. Our team of clinicians will inform you about the best screening options for you. When you are told about the benefits and risks of screening and decide with our clinical team whether screening is right for you—and if so, when to have it—this is called informed and shared decision-making.

Although breast cancer screening cannot prevent breast cancer, it can help find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat. Talk to your doctor about which breast cancer screening tests are right for you, and when you should have them.

Cervical Cancer

The Pap test can find abnormal cells in the cervix which may turn into cancer. The HPV test looks for the virus (human papillomavirus) that can cause these cell changes. Pap tests also can find cervical cancer early, when the chance of being cured is very high.

Colorectal (Colon) Cancer

Colorectal cancer almost always develops from precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) in the colon or rectum. Screening tests can find precancerous polyps, so they can be removed before they turn into cancer. Screening tests also can find colorectal cancer early, when treatment works best.

Lung Cancer

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends yearly lung cancer screening with low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) for people who have a history of heavy smoking, and smoke now or have quit within the past 15 years and are between 55 and 80 years old.

Chronic Disease Management

Our clinical teams use an integrated care approach to managing illness which includes screenings, check-ups, monitoring and coordinating treatment, and patient education. Our approach is aimed at improving your quality of life while reducing your health care by preventing or minimizing the effects of a disease. Some common chronic diseases we work with you to manage include Diabetes, Hypertension, and Hyperlipidemia.

Talk to us to see what we can do to keep you healthy.

Family Medicine

When you need medical care for the whole family, you don’t have to find different doctors and deal with scheduling appointments at different locations. Family medicine makes it easy for everyone in your family to get health care at the same location, providing you with greater convenience. Our team of clinicians offer provides complete, advanced medical care under one roof for all members of your family — including children, teenagers, adults and the elderly.

When our family physicians treat you and your loved ones, we take the whole person, the family and his or her environment into consideration. The result is an innovative, compassionate level of care that is a national model of healthcare service.

Our physicians provide family-centered primary care for patients of all ages, from newborns to the elderly. We see a range of conditions, including:

  • Acute illnesses in children and adults, including cold, flu, abdominal pain and backaches
  • Aging-related illnesses and conditions, for example, arthritis, osteoporosis and dementia
  • Gynecologic conditions and diseases, such as irregular periods, urinary tract infections and vaginal infections
  • Chronic conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and asthma
  • Sports-related conditions that include sprains and strains
  • Psychological conditions including depression and anxiety

Infusion Therapy

Most people use infusion therapy because they are not getting the proper amount of nutrients through their diet alone. Nutrient infusion therapy is a safe and effective way to receive your vitamins, minerals and other nutrients directly into your bloodstream. Treatment sessions typically last 30-45 minutes and will leave you feeling refreshed and energized.

Suboxone Treatment

Suboxone, considered a “blockbuster” medication has the potential to reduce symptoms of opiate addiction and withdrawal. It is a combination of two different drugs: buprenorphine (a partial opioid agonist) and naloxone (a pure opioid antagonist).

As a partial opioid agonist, buprenorphine delivers a very low opioid dose to a patient who is addicted to a stronger opioid. This helps the patient to be gradually weaned off their pre-existing addiction, while minimizing the opioid withdrawal symptoms.

The Naloxone in Suboxone is defined as a pure opioid antagonist which in combination with buprenorphinehelps patients to wean from stronger narcotics.
