Procedures Performed

Allergy Shots

Allergy shots, also known as immunotherapy, is the only therapy that can modify or eliminate an allergic response. It is a way to increase the body’s natural resistance to the substances are provoking the allergic reaction. St. Joseph's immunotherapy program is supported by Rosch technology, giving you access to an advanced allergy extract and injection management system that gives you greater visibility to your process and decreases your wait time.

Patch Test

Patch testing involves applying small samples of allergenic substances to small patches of the skin to check for an allergic reaction (contact dermatitis).

RUSH immunotherapy (RUSH IT)

RUSH Immunotherapy is available for select patients who are candidates for an accelerated form of immunotherapy in which doses are given more rapidly.

Skin Injection Test

A skin injection test takes about 15 minutes and involves injecting a small amount of the allergen under the skin. This test is typically used to check for allergic reactions to medications such as penicillin and to check for reactions to insect venom such as bee stings.

Skin Prick Test

A skin prick test, also known as a scratch test, is used to identify allergic reactions to more than 40 different substances using a lancet prick to determine if there is an allergy to any of the substances.

Specific IgE Blood Test

This is a blood test that combines a sample of your blood with chosen allergens to measure the resulting antibodies for analysis and diagnosis by a doctor.

Spirometry

Spirometry is a common test used to assess how well your lungs are working. It involves breathing out as quickly as you can into the nozzle of an apparatus called a spirometer. The spirometer will then measure the effectiveness and pressure of your breath.
