Expertise for Complex Allergies

Allergies to Food

Food for Thought: Food Allergies

About 12 million Americans have food allergies, including anywhere from 4 percent to 8 percent of children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

But allergy symptoms are not one-size-fits-all. And sometimes symptoms start mildly and become worse. You never know what to expect.

Research: The Mysterious Red Meat Allergy

  • Scott Commins, MD, has been conducting research into the tick bite that can cause an allergy to red meat.

    While more than 2,000 known cases have occurred in less than 10 years in the U.S., tracking incidents can prove challenging: The lag time between the tick bite and symptoms can be as long as one month, making it difficult to determine what's going on.

    This study is just one example of the many discoveries we are making into immunity, peanut allergies, asthma complications and more.

    Learn more about how tick bites can cause allergies to red meat.

Finding the Right Diagnosis

Drug Allergy

Are you sure that you're allergic to penicillin? This allergy can disappear with time.

While about 10 percent of people report a penicillin allergy, further tests showed that most could tolerate the drug. Penicillin allergies can cause extra hospital stays and unnecessarily affect your treatment and care.

Get evaluated: Find out if you have a drug allergy at our clinic.

Asthma: Getting it Right

  • Do you have severe asthma? For asthma that fails to respond to the usual drugs, we do a comprehensive evaluation of all the possible sources: sinus, reflux, allergies or sleep disorders. You may not even have asthma, but a vocal cord issue or sleep apnea. So it's a matter of discovering the right diagnosis before we begin treatment.
