About Allergy Solutions

Allergy Solutions is a Medical Ancillary Services Provider dedicated to building long-lasting relationships with medical practice groups to improve existing patient's quality of life by identifying the allergy which cause symptoms by eliminating or minimizing their impact. We provide managed, turn-key allergy testing labs, and customized desensitization (immunotherapy) treatment protocols.

For Physicians

Allergy Solutions provides a new revenue source and much-needed treatment for allergy sufferers, paving the way for them to leave behind their over the counter allergy medication for good, while creating a brand new revenue stream for your practice. Allergy Solutions of New York does functions as an “ancillary” service in the doctor’s office. Allergy Solutions was founded in 2009, and is the first company to support primary-care physicians in providing safe and convenient allergy testing and treatment via individual customized immunotherapy.

Partnering with Allergy Solutions provides a fully – staffed and operational allergy center that seamlessly integrates into physician’s office. Allergy Solutions manages the functional aspects of the center, such as the personnel, supplies, and equipment needed to perform the testing and subsequent treatment. Allergy Solutions staffs the allergy center with Allergy Solutions certified clinical allergy specialists trained in the latest techniques for allergy testing that actually exceed federal standards.

The physician(s) manage the clinical side, retaining full control of their patients, and sometimes equally important, not losing the patient by referring every allergy patient to a specialist. The clinical process begins when patients discuss their allergy symptoms with their PCP, and the physician determines if they are a candidate for testing and treatment. (The ideal candidate is over the age of two and suffers from food, seasonal, environmental, chemical or drug allergies.) The physician then orders the allergy skin scratch test, to confirm the patients specific allergen sensitivities. Each patient is different, as are the allergens in a geographic location, Allergy Solutions tests for 48 most common allergens in the specific geographic area, along with 92 food allergens and a variety of antibiotics, and chemical testing.

Once a patient’s allergy scratch test has confirmed sensitivities to allergens,the physician coordinates and supervises a customized treatment plan that meets the patient’s specific needs. Usually this involves a thorough discussion of allergen-avoidance therapy, and in appropriate cases immunotherapy treatment.

Aside from the obvious benefits of the treatment to the patient, most insurance plans cover allergy testing and treatment in the PCP’s office, including Medicare, Medicaid and all private insurances.

Allergy Solutions is changing patient's lives with the effective treatment, partnering with physicians to increase a patient’s quality of life, and workforce and school productivity, by providing a high in-demanding service. The patients feel great and the clinics have a higher rate of patient retention.

FAQ's For Physicians

I’m not an allergist. Can my practice provide this allergy service?
Most primary care or family health practices can provide and bill for this service. We provide the services to your clinic, while you or your physicians oversee total patient care.
Is this service reimbursed through insurance?
Yes. Allergy testing and immunotherapy is an FDA recognized treatment with established results. Most insurance providers reimburse for these services.
How long does the test take?
A simple skin test that includes most common airborne allergens and a food test that can be customized to the doctors and patients request. The results are ready in 20 minutes.
Why should I incorporate this into my practice?
What’s “out there” is not working. Patients suffer in silence without knowing there is an alternative. Patients prefer their family doctor oversee their total care. Diagnosing and treating airborne allergies in your clinic is within your scope of practice. This presents a huge patient care opportunity in addition to a financial opportunity.

Patient Information

Allergy overview
Allergy is characterised by an overreaction of the human immune system to a foreign protein substance (“allergen”) that is eaten, breathed into the lungs, injected or touched. This immune overreaction can results in symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, runny nose and scratchy throat. In severe cases it can also result in rashes, hives, lower blood pressure, difficulty breathing, asthma attacks, and even death.
WHAT IS IMMUNOTHERAPY?
Allergy Immunotherapy is a clinically documented treatment that considerably reduces, or completely removes your allergy symptoms and the need for traditional, symptom relieving medication. Until your immune system has had time to adjust, you may still need the medication you are already using. After three to six months, your need for drugs may decrease and your symptoms may become less severe. An additional effect of immunotherapy is that it may prevent the onset of other allergies and the development of asthma. Studies have shown that children who were at an increased risk of developing asthma were able to resist the onset of asthma and see their existing symptoms decrease after completing treatment.
SKIN TEST
A skin test involves a gentle prick with a drop of allergen extract on the surface of your arm. This method may result in mild swelling and a reddening of the skin, which tells the doctor that you have an allergy. For most patients this method requires about 30 minutes and is not painful.


HOW DOES IMMUNOTHERAPY WORK?
During the treatment, the immune system is gradually desensitized through injections of small doses of specific allergenic proteins extracted from natural allergen sources: pollens (grass, trees, etc.), house dust mites, animals, insects and more. You eventually grow accustomed to the allergens that normally caused an allergic reaction.

FAQ's For Patient

CAN ALLERGIES DEVELOP INTO ASTHMA?
Yes. Studies have shown that children who suffer from hay fever and/or eczema are more likely to develop asthma. Allergic rhinitis, eczema and asthma are part of the same condition that can co-exist in up to 80% of patients. This means that by treating the cause of your allergies, you may prevent the progression of allergies and reduce the risk of asthma attacks.
WHAT CAUSES ALLERGIES?
An allergy is caused by an oversensitive immune system, which leads to a misdirected immune response. The immune system normally protects the body against harmful substances, such as bacteria and viruses. When an allergic reaction occurs, it is a result of the immune system reacting to substances (allergens) that are generally harmless and in most people do not cause an immune response. In a person with allergies, the first exposure to the allergen triggers the immune system to recognize the substance. Any exposure after that will usually result in symptoms. When an allergen enters the body of a person with a sensitized immune system, histamine and other chemicals are released by certain cells. This causes itching, swelling, mucus production, muscle spasms, hives, rashes, and other symptoms. These can vary in severity from person to person. Most people have symptoms that cause discomfort without being life-threatening. A few people have life-threatening reactions (called anaphylaxis).
What are allergies?
Sometimes the side effects of medications may seem more severe than the symptoms of allergies they treat. Many people suffer from drowsiness, disconnectedness, cognitive dysfunction, lethargy, memory issues, dizziness, increased heart rate, headaches and even nausea. There is a rising concern about the long-term health effects of taking medications. Most people would prefer to take as few drugs as possible during their lifetime. Many are concerned about the rising cost of medications. Even over-the-counter drugs continue to steadily increase in price over the years.
What are allergy shots?
Allergy shots are the most effective and only way to permanently treat allergies. Allergy shots have been used and tested by doctors for many decades. They are considered safe and have no record of any long-term negative side effects. Studies show that allergy shots can also prevent people from developing new allergies, and reduce the risk of developing asthma in children with nasal allergies. Allergy shots are also natural. Allergy shots use only the proteins that trigger allergies as a way to permanently de-sensitize the body’s reaction to nature.
What is subcutaneous immunotherapy?
Allergy shots are referred to as “immunotherapy,” and are given to increase your tolerance to the substances (allergens) that provoke allergy symptoms. They are administered with a very small needle just under the skin. This method is referred to as “subcutaneous”. These shots are not painful and use the same kind of needle that diabetics use to self-administer insulin multiple times a day.
What is self administered subcutaneous immunotherapy?
This method of immunotherapy involves the bi-weekly injection of a small dose of allergic extract. The dose is slowly increased until the person becomes tolerant to larger amounts of the same extract. These injections are initially given at the beginning of each new dilution under the supervision of a physician until a maintenance dose, or constant dose, is achieved. This usually takes approximately 30 weeks. Once the maintenance dosage is reached no more office visits for immunotherapy are required. The person continues to self administer the maintenance dose two times a week. By administering smaller dosages more frequently per month patients receive safer and more effective immunotherapy. The initial time for therapy is 18 months.
Are allergy shots right for you?
Allergy shots are most commonly recommended to people who suffer from allergies, who find little or no relief through traditional medications. People who have allergy symptoms more than one season, or all season long each year, people who cannot avoid contact with allergens due to work environment or a favorite family pet, and those who suffer from allergy induced sinusitis are excellent candidates for immunotherapy.
How should I prepare for allergy shots?
For two hours before and after your injection, do not exercise or engage in vigorous activity. Exercise may stimulate increased blood flow to the tissues and promote faster release of antigens into the bloodstream. Tell your doctor about all the medications you are taking. Some medications, such as beta blockers, can interfere with the treatment and/or increase the risk of side effects. Talk to your doctor about the safety of continuing the allergy shots if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant.
What should I expect after allergy shots?
Redness, swelling, or irritation within one inch of the site of the injection is normal. These symptoms should go away within 4 to 8 hours after receiving the shot. You will be monitored for about 30 minutes in the physician’s office after receiving an allergy shot to make sure that you don’t develop side effects. If you have side effects such as itchy eyes or runny nose, set up an appointment to meet with the allergy tech. Your dosage may need to be changed. If you begin to experience symptoms such as shortness of breath or tight throat after you leave the doctor’s office, or right after self-injection, use the EpiPen and dial 911.
