Diagnosis and Treatment of Allergies & Asthma

We treat the cause, not just the symptoms. Patients treated in our center include those who recently began suffering from allergies and asthma. This group starts treatment in the early stage of the disease to prevent serious complications.

Another group of patients include those who have been suffering from allergies for several years who are chronic users of over-the-counter medications and receive limited or no results. Unfortunately, some allergic patients have the wrong concept regarding the treatment of allergies. They believe if self treatment by over-the-counter medication is not effective, nothing else can be done. We believe, "A lot more can be done." If the cause of allergy is found, successful treatment can be achieved.

Out goal is to "treat the cause, not just the symptoms." At Valencia Allergy & Asthma Center, We diagnose and treat the following:

  • Hay fever/allergic rhinitis (seasonal and perennial)
  • Asthma and allergic respiratory diseases
  • Acute and chronic nasal allergies and hay fever
  • Sinus headaches
  • Chronic sinus infection
  • Chronic cough
  • Allergic skin diseases
  • Hives
  • Eczema
  • Food allergy
  • Drug allergy
  • Pet allergy
  • Eye allergy
  • Frequent colds and infant ear aches
  • Immune deficiencies

We are equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, including easy methods of allergy skin testing, pulmonary lung function testing, and new nitrous oxide measurement to diagnose inflammation in asthmatics. For diagnosis of chronic sinusitis, we provide ultrasound of the sinuses and, for diagnosis of ear diseases, offer tympanometry.
