Allergy & Immunology

Allergy & Immunology

Allergies are the fifth most common chronic disease in the United States, costing businesses and the health care system nearly $8 billion annually. In fact, over 50 percent of Americans have tested positive for one or more allergens. At Desert Center for Allergy and Chest Diseases in Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona, our board-certified allergy doctors treat children and adults for all types of allergies including:


  • Dermatitis (rashes, skin allergies, contact dermatitis)
  • Eczema (atopic dermatitis)
  • Hives (urticaria)
  • Angioedema (swelling under the skin)
  • Hay fever (allergic rhinitis, outdoor allergies)
  • Recurrent ear and sinus infections (sinusitis)
  • Allergic asthma
  • Drug allergies (reactions to Penicillin, antibiotics and other medications)
  • Food allergies (peanuts, dairy, eggs, wheat, shellfish, etc.)
  • Cosmetic allergies (health and beauty aids, hair dye)
  • Insect sting allergies (bees, spiders, mosquitos, etc.)
  • Pet and animal allergies
  • Latex allergies
  • Environmental and occupational allergies (dust, mold, pollen, chemicals, pollutants, etc.)
  • Immunological diseases
  • Eosinophilic esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus)

Reactions to allergens vary widely. Some allergens may elicit only mild symptoms such as watery eyes or sneezing, while another can cause life-threatening symptoms such as difficulty breathing or shock. That’s why it is important to seek treatment if you have allergies.

At Desert Center for Allergy and Chest Diseases, we can perform allergy tests such as the skin prick technique or oral food challenges and begin treatment for allergies immediately. Your individual treatment plan may include:

  • Traditional immunotherapy / allergy shots
  • Rush immunotherapy (faster way to achieve maintenance dose of allergy injections)
  • Prescription medications
  • Drug desensitization (controlled method of helping patients temporarily tolerate medications that they are allergic to)
  • Flu and pneumonia vaccinations

You do not and should not have to live with allergies. If you suffer from airborne allergies or hay fever, early intervention can completely erase or significantly reduce symptoms. Moreover, recent research indicates that allergy-induced asthma may be prevented if allergies are treated early enough with allergy shots.

At Desert Center for Allergy and Chest Diseases, you can be assured that you will receive the highest quality, most compassionate allergy care in the Phoenix and Scottsdale area. To schedule an appointment with one of our board-certified allergy doctors, call (602) 788-7211 Option #3.
