The management of chronic and recurrent nasal and sinus disease requires a history and detailed examination of the patient that often includes allergy testing. The Department of Otolaryngology provides allergy testing, along with endoscopic examination and X-rays, to diagnose and treat patients with sinus and nasal abnormalities. 

RAST (Radio-Allergo-Sorbent Test), a blood test, and skin testing are routinely used to diagnose specific pollens patients have allergies to. Immunotherapy, or allergy shots, are provided using a methodology that is patient-friendly. Sublingual drops, as a means to test allergic disease, are also provided. The nurses who assist in the testing and treatment of the allergic patient are well trained and provide high quality and excellent care.
