Our Services

What to Expect From a Consult

The Allergy Doctors treat all ages and approach each patient as an individual. We design a treatment plan that is unique to you. Here’s how our allergy consultation works:
We listen to you
Your story is the most valuable part of our allergy consultation. You tell us what your symptoms are; when they happen, how frequently they’re happening, and what else have you noticed?
Allergy Testing
Once we’ve listened to your experiences, we may do some further tests to pin down the specific causes of your symptoms.
One of the ways we do this is with a skin prick test. This is an effective and quick way of identifying allergens. If required, a blood test may also be ordered.
We make a plan
We propose an evidence-based allergy treatment plan that fits with your lifestyle.
Sharing information
Once done, and with your permission, we will update your GP with our findings to keep all your care providers on the same page.
*If we believe you need care that is outside of our scope we will refer you to an immunology specialist, in consultation with you, to ensure the best and most appropriate care available for you or your child. In some cases, same-day diagnosis won’t be possible, but we will always refer you for further investigation if needed.
