More than 50 million people in the United States have allergies. *Do you sometimes have any of these symptoms? Stuffy or runny nose, cough at night, sneezing, itchy, teary, puffy or burning eyes, headaches, wheezing, unable to sleep through the night without coughing attacks or shortness of breath? Then Allergy testing at Medical Access can improve your quality of life. We test for common allergies: wheat, mold, weeds, trees, grass, dairy, beer, poultry, nuts, seafood, fruits, and vegetables. Check with your insurance company for coverage.
Upon your visit, our medical assistant will ask you questions about your allergy and medical history. Then you will receive the skin test, which entails placement of various air-born or food allergens on your skin using plastic micro-pointed applicator called ComforTen. The reaction on the skin is measured in 20 minutes. Based on your results, you will receive a diagnosis and recommendation of treatment.
