Research: The Mysterious Red Meat Allergy
Did you know a tick bite could make you allergic 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.

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.

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.
