In order to prescribe the most effective allergy treatment for each patient, Temple’s physicians use advanced diagnostic techniques to pinpoint the cause of each patient’s allergies. They do this using both standard skin-based allergy testing, and, in certain cases, using genetic expression testing. This new diagnostic tool allows Temple allergists to pinpoint the cellular activity that causes a particular person’s allergies. They can then treat the patient using state-of-the-art biologic therapies targeting the specific cellular cause of the allergies. These targeted treatments can be very effective and provide great relief for previously un-managed allergies.
For patients with more typical presentations of allergies, Temple Allergy Center provides a high standard in conventional treatment for patients with symptoms ranging from hay fever to anaphylactic reactions.
