    What We Do

    The goal of the Allergy and Immunology Department at WESTMED is to improve the quality of life for children and adults suffering from allergic diseases. Visits may include a single or limited consultation, co-management between the primary care provider and our allergists/immunologists or ongoing care by the specialists.


    Conditions We Treat

    • Anaphylaxis (severe, life-threatening allergic reactions)
    • Asthma
    • Allergic rhinitis/sinusitis (hay fever)
    • Cough
    • Drug allergy
    • Eczema
    • Food allergy
    • Insect allergy
    • Primary immune deficiency
    • Urticaria and angioedema (hives and swelling)


    Outpatient Procedures

    • Allergy testing (skin, in-vitro)
    • History-allergy test correlation
    • Environmental control instructions
    • Inhalant immunotherapy
    • Immunomodulator therapy (e.g. anti-IgE, IVIG)
    • Venom immunotherapy
    • Food and drug challenges
    • Drug desensitization
    • Evaluation of immune competence
    • Education (disease, medications, monitoring)
    • Management of chronic or recurrent conditions where allergy is not always identified: rhinosinusitis and conjunctivitis (hay fever), asthma, cough, urticaria/angioedema (hives and swelling), eczema, anaphylaxis (severe, life-threatening allergic reactions).


    Why We Are Different

    With so much information and misinformation available to patients through the media, our allergists/immunologists, using an evidenced-based approach, are best qualified to cut through the noise and provide clear information to patients. Using extensive history-taking and appropriate testing and interpretation, the physicians and patients jointly customize a plan to ultimately improve their health and their lives.
