Is It a True Food Allergy?

The best way to find out is through a diagnostic test done by an allergy specialist. We offer the full array of tests including:

A skin-scratch test, to reveal which food, if any, you or your child may be allergic to. 
A blood test, which may be performed if the skin-scratch test does not provide clear results.
Food challenge test, which introduces patients to specific foods in the safety of the clinical setting to establish if a suspected allergy is indeed a true one.
