Don't let allergies control your life.
Allergies affect 1 in 5 Americans and are considered one of the most common health conditions2. Allergy problems arise when the immune system has an abnormal response to something in the environment and results in sensitivity to a usually harmless substance in the environment. This substance, commonly known as dust, pollen, or mold, is called an allergen. Symptoms may include itchy eyes, nasal congestion, rash, runny nose, and sore throat. Untreated allergies can cause headaches, post nasal drip, and even upper respiratory infections.
At Sinus Center MD, tests are performed daily to determine what causes a patient’s allergy symptoms. These tests will assist Dr. Martinez in establishing an appropriate treatment plan that will eliminate allergy symptoms and help the patient go back to a life without discomfort and irritation caused by his or her allergies. Below is a description of all the allergy services provided by Sinus Center MD.
