Allergic Rhinitis

It hardly seems fair. Just as the days start getting longer and warmer, and people have finally stopped spreading their flus and colds around the office, the misery begins all over again. Welcome to allergy season.

Identifying your Allergies
In the process of diagnosing allergies, one of our allergists will start by performing an extensive history and thorough physical examination. If your history indicates an allergic condition, the next step would be to perform an allergy skin or blood test. All of this can be done within your very first visit to our office.

At Oak Brook Allergists, we don’t just diagnosis the source of your allergy; we do whatever it takes to minimize symptoms and recovery periods by offering an extensive list of treatments:
