Allergy & Immunology - Services

Today, there are new allergy treatments available that are helping millions of people live healthier, more active lives. Our practice, founded by Dr. Kristine Krol in 1989, is committed to offering these new therapies to you.
By using innovative and practical techniques, we have helped our own patients become desensitized to allergies, avoid hospitalization, and enjoy life more fully. We care for patients of all ages, from very young children to older adults
Our services include the complete diagnosis and treatment of all types of allergies. For example, we offer:

Allergy Testing and Control

  • Inhalant allergies
  • Environmental (dust. pollen, animal) allergies
  • Food allergies
  • Bee sting (venom) al ergies
  • Penicillin and other drug allergies
  • Contact allergies (to cosmetics, gold, etc.)

Treatment of Resulting Symptoms

  • Asthma or wheezing
  • Hay-fever
  • Sinus problems
  • Headaches and pressure in facial area
  • Chronic coughing
  • Eczema, rashes and hives
  • Recurrent ear infections

Offering Modern Facilities

The most effective way to test for allergies is still skin "prick" testing. All types of allergies can be tested this way, including the rarer bee sting and drug allergies. Our light touch during allergy testing makes this a very comfortable procedure.
Other modern testing facilities include:
  • Blood allergy testing (if needed)
  • Pulmonary function testing (for wheezing and asthma)
  • Tympanogram to measure inner ear fluid

Allergy Injections

Allergy injections help you become less sensitive to a particular allergy, like pollen After initial weekly injections (6 months to 1 year), your resistance builds to the point where you need to visit us only once every 34 weeks. Then, some people can stop injections all together after 3-5 years. We'll talk with you about your previous allergy experiences to try and see if this is possible for you.
