Our allergy and ENT physicians work together as a team to provide faster diagnosis and comprehensive treatment so that patients benefit from this close collaboration.
According to the leading experts in allergy, an allergic reaction begins in our immune system. Our immune system protects us from invading organisms that can cause illness. If you have an allergy, your immune system mistakes an otherwise harmless substance as an invader. This substance is called an allergen. The immune system overreacts to the allergen by producing Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies. These antibodies travel to cells that release histamine and other chemicals, causing an allergic reaction.
