Conditions we treat
Allergic rhinitis, often referred to as Hay Fever, is an overreaction of the immune system that tends to occur during certain times of the year (seasonal and perennial).
A food allergy is caused by your immune system incorrectly recognizing a food as harmful. Your body then reacts by producing allergy antibodies (IgE) against that food.
Chronic Hives and Swelling
Hives are a skin reaction that leads to red, swollen welts on the body. Approximately 1% of the general population can experience this condition.
Allergic reactions to insect stings can be assessed, including reactions to honey bee, wasp, yellow-faced hornet, white-faced hornet and yellow jacket.
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory airway disease that can cause shortness of breath, wheeze, cough and/or chest tightness.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a condition in which the airways in the lungs become inflamed and narrows and the air sacs become damaged.
Including Drug Allergies, Atopic Dermatitis, Lung Cancer, and Immunodeficiency.
Aera Medical offers the following
In office testing
Spirometry is a lung function test that measures how much air a person can inhale and exhale, as well as how quickly they can do so. It is a simple, non-invasive test that helps diagnose and monitor conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and other respiratory disorders.
Allergy patch testing is a diagnostic test used to identify contact dermatitis, which is a type of skin inflammation caused by an allergic reaction to substances that come in contact with the skin. During patch testing, small amounts of common allergens are applied to the skin using adhesive patches.
