Kiss allergies goodbye

Allergies affect an estimated 65 to 70 million Americans. Many people don’t even realize they have allergies. They routinely experience symptoms or take symptom-relief medications without knowing what they’re allergic to. Many of the most common reasons for doctor visits – cough, runny nose, sinus/nasal problems, headaches, congestion, itchy eyes – are related to allergies.

Whether you know you have allergies or have them without knowing, your allergy profile is unique to you. Each of us has different sensitivities to different things. Some are sensitive to allergens like pollen and mold spores, while others have pet-related or environmental sensitivities. Unfortunately, most treatments are one-size-fits-all and only provide temporarily relief of some symptoms – without ever addressing their cause.


Allergies and your immune system

Your immune system is always working hard to fight germs, viruses and other toxic agents that can harm your body. Allergies result when your immune system responds to these invaders. Sometimes your immune system overreacts when a harmless agent – known as an allergen – enters the body. This is called an allergic reaction.

To find the cause of your allergies, Dr. Baker uses the latest, most accurate skin and intradermal testing. He’ll recommend the appropriate test based on your symptoms and provide your results during your visit.

This allows your treatment to begin immediately. Dr. Baker can give you welcome relief from:

  • Seasonal allergies
  • Eye allergies
  • Food allergies
  • Medication allergies
  • Allergic rhinitis
  • Skin allergies
  • Hives
  • Environmental allergies
  • Skin allergies
  • Pet allergies


Dr. Baker works with the most conservative allergy treatment methods first, such as:

  • Allergen recognition and avoidance counseling
  • Food elimination and diet counseling
  • Advanced allergy medications

He may recommend immunotherapy (allergy shots or drops) if the most conservative approaches do not relieve your symptoms.
