I had a very good experience. They took the time to call me when insurance rejected the claim for my daughter's visit, then they resubmitted the claim and called me when it was approved. I really appreciated this because usually you only get a call when something is wrong. But the staff at this office called me with good news, which was a relief and also very considerate. ~ Brandee M.

~ Michael It is possible to end or significantly reduce many types of allergies with immunotherapy. This technique, also known as allergy shots, is highly effective. It prevents allergic reactions by inhibiting the individual’s immune reaction to specific triggers. This therapy can prevent coughing, wheezing, post-nasal drip, itchy or puffy eyes, headaches, sinus problems and more.
Immunotherapy allergy treatment works by reducing a person’s sensitivity to certain substances through carefully calculated exposure. Gentle injections are administered at regular intervals, beginning with a very low concentration of the allergen and gradually progressing. This treatment is FDA approved, and it can help prevent the development of asthmatic conditions.
At Advanced Allergy & Asthma Associates and Food Allergy Center of Illinois, we strictly adhere to the latest treatment guidelines, for safe, effective, and fast treatment. We can help our patients find relief in a matter of months; there is no need to ensure weekly shots for years.

Any individual with allergies to insect venom, such as that of bees, hornets, yellow jackets, or wasps, may be a good candidate for immunotherapy. It is highly effective in combatting this type of allergy. Research has shown that this allergy treatment technique can safely decrease a person’s risk of potentially fatal reactions to stings by as much as 95 percent. We advise anyone with potential venom allergies to carry an Epi-pen at all times – it can be lifesaving in an emergency.
