Allergy & Immunology
Proper diagnosis is central to creating a personalized treatment plan for a specific allergy. At White Plains Hospital, specialists in allergy and immunology are trained to identify the cause of each patient’s symptoms and create a customized treatment plan tailored to each individual. Diagnostic assessment will often include a physical examination, a detailed allergy history, which consists of a description of home and work environments as well as an account of one’s diet, and allergy skin tests. Once the source of the allergy is determined, the proper treatment may include changes to one’s environment, diet modification and/or the use of medications to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life.
