Allergy Shots (Immunotherapy)

Before receiving allergy shots, a skin test may be done to determine that your reactions are caused by an allergy, and what specific allergies are. See Scratch tests for more details.

What is an Allergy Shot?

Allergy shots are a form of immunotherapy. Every allergy shot contains a small amount of the substance that's  triggering your allergic reaction. These substances are called allergens. Each allergy shot contains just enough allergen to get your immune system to react.

As time progresses, the dose of allergen is increased, thereby helping your body build a tolerance to the allergen.

Allergy Shots can be Helpful to Help Control

  • Seasonal Allegies
  • Indoor Allergies
  • Insect Sting Reactions
  • Asthma

Will Allergy Shots Stop Your Allergies?

Allergies won't stop overnight. Generally they do improve over the course of a year. After a 3-5 years of treatment, many people show no signs of allergic reaction to the allergens.

Patient Testimonial:

I have only GOOD things to say about Dr. Wexler’s allergy clinic. Dr. Wexler is a caring, compassionate and highly competent physician who does his best for his patients and practices good, efficient medicine. His staff, especially his nurse practitioners, are of the highest quality. I wish there were more physicians like him who treat their patients as human beings rather than numbers to be impersonally disposed of. Dr. Wexler is a credit to the medical profession.

A long time patient




Dr Wexler,

There are no words to express how truly grateful I am to you. You gave me an opportunity & a chance when no one else would, & for that I will be eternally grateful. When I started I had some high expectations & am pleased to say that you & the clinic highly exceeded them. The kindness & generosity you show to your PTs & staff is incredible & outstanding. You listen to what is said & don't settle for just anything, you are thorough, which is refreshing.
I have really learned a lot while working here. My skills have improved (especially with drawing blood) & I have more confidence in myself. The fact that you believed & trusted that I could do things helped push me to a higher level, so thank you!
There truly is no way to thank you for all that you have done for Tysen & I. Your generosity made us able to accomplish some of our life goals. We weren't sure would be able to happen. I am very thankful I was able to stay & help as well. Timing always works out for a reason!
But truly, THANK YOU! I wish you & your family all the best. Blessings to you. I will miss you & the clinic VERY MUCH! Thanks again.

 

Sincerely

Sarah --------
