- Measurements of lung function, including oxygen saturation

State-of-the-Art Care at a World-Renowned Academic Medical Center
Our group provides first-class care for each patient. Diagnosis is achieved via history, physical examination, allergy skin testing and laboratory testing. Once patients are diagnosed, we control allergy via a combination of environment controls, drug therapy and allergy shots. Our team includes nurses with particular interest in food allergies and asthma. We consider parents and referring physicians to be full partners in the treatment of children and we provide comprehensive allergy education for patients and families.
