RELIEF FROM ASTHMA SYMPTOMS
TRUST OUR IMMUNOLOGY SERVICES
ALLERGY, ASTHMA AND IMMUNOLOGY
Determining the source of an allergic, asthmatic, or immune disorder can be a complicated process—which is why you want an experienced and specialized team on your side. Oak Brook Allergists proudly has a team of board certified allergists, registered nurses and nurse practitioners who are trained to treat and reduce the symptoms of allergic conditions. In the process of diagnosing allergies, one of our allergists will begin by performing an extensive history and physical exam. 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.
Using our panel of allergy skin tests, we are able to evaluate 32 different airborne allergens—including a variety of grasses, weeds, trees, dust, mite, molds, and pet dander. Also, because we know that sometimes food and pollen allergens cross-react, we may recommend food testing so that your allergy workup is complete. Without a doubt, the best allergy treatment in Illinois can be found at Oak Brook Allergists.
An asthma attack can result from a number of different environmental allergens. These can include pet dander, grass, pollen, dust mites, and mold spores. Learn More
RELIEF FROM FOOD ALLERGIES

RELIEF FROM ALLERGIC REACTIONS TO INSECT STINGS

DETERMINING THE PRESENCE OF AN
An asthmatic condition may be an indication of certain allergy problems. To determine if an allergic asthmatic condition is present, we will recommend skin testing as well as a pulmonary function test. Once an asthmatic condition has been diagnosed we will discuss the best method of treatment for your condition.
Our allergists are trained to evaluate all aspects of the immune system. If you are experiencing recurrent bronchitis, pneumonia, sinusitis, or ear infections, you may have an underlying problem within your immune system. In this case, we would suggest a complete immunologic workup to determine the best treatment to help prevent and minimize infections.
At Oak Brook Allergists, we don't just diagnose the source of your allergic, asthmatic, or immune disorder—we do whatever it takes to minimize symptoms and recovery periods by offering an extensive list of treatments.
Treatment of airborne allergic symptoms may require all of the following:
1. Medication – For symptomatic control of symptoms.
2. Immunotherapy – Injections of the allergic substances causing your symptoms, allowing your immune system to build blocking antibodies.
3. Environmental Control – Changing your environment to lessen your exposure to those allergic substances which are harmful to you.
In order to provide continuous care to patients who require hospitalization, all of our physicians maintain staff privileges at various hospitals within our communities.
