ABOUT OUR ALLERGY SERVICES
OUR OFFICE IS HONORED YOU ARE INVESTIGATING SUBLINGUAL IMMUNOTHERAPY (SLIT) FOR LONG TERM ALLERGY RELIEF. This treatment consists of drops administered daily under the tongue that condition your immune system to moderate its response to common allergens. We have been offering this service to patients like yourself for many years, and it is gratifying to see the treatment alleviate allergy symptoms and improve quality of life for so many.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT OUR OFFICE DOES NOT DO ALLERGY SPECIFIC TESTING. The allergy test we perform in our office gives a positive or negative result for the allergens common to our area and will only tell you that you have allergies. It will not tell you what your allergies are; if you need to know specifically what your allergies are, we invite you to contact an allergist.
In spite of the relief experienced by so many, NEARLY ALL INSURANCE COMPANIES, INCLUDING MEDICARE, deem this treatment “investigational” or “not medically necessary” and DO NOT COVER IT. Therefore, in order to keep costs as low as possible, ALL SERUM IS PURCHASED PRIVATELY AND IS PAID FOR BY THE PATIENT AT THE TIME IT IS ORDERED; we do not take payments or bill insurance for the serum.
WE INVITE YOU TO CALL OUR OFFICE WITH ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS.
