The initial part of an allergy evaluation, after an evaluation by an Ears, Nose, and Throat doctor, includes allergy testing. Allergy testing identifies what a person may be allergic to. Knowing what a person is allergic to may help guide behavioral changes, and determine the need for and starting dose of immunotherapy (allergy shots/allergy therapy). At West Suburban ENT, we offer skin testing, which is considered to be the most sensitive method of allergy assessment.
