According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, an estimated 50 million Americans suffer from all types of allergies, including indoor/outdoor, food and drug, latex, insect, skin and eye allergies. Thanks to comprehensive allergy testing that’s being offered by CareMed Urgent & Primary Care (, there’s now a way to get recommended treatment to enjoy the beautiful spring and summer weather.

“Allergy triggers, or allergens, can vary by region of the country and from person to person,” Dr. Vipul Mangal, M.D., co-owner and spokesman for CareMed Urgent & Primary Care, said. “That’s why knowing the allergens that affect you is so important.”

CareMed Urgent & Primary Care, according to Dr. Mangal, offers a percutaneous scratch test with allergenic extracts for the 72 most common allergens, including – but not limited to – seasonal allergy triggers.

“A comprehensive report of results outlining individual triggers is provided and used to outline a personal allergy approach plan in partnership with the patient’s healthcare provider,” Dr. Mangal pointed out.

CareMed Urgent & Primary Care’s decision to offer comprehensive allergy testing could prove to have perfect timing due to the fact that allergy is the fifth leading chronic disease in the U.S among all ages, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. In addition to that, allergy is the third most common chronic disease among children under 18 years old.

“With warming temperatures, for some, come the tell-tale symptoms of seasonal allergies: congestion, a runny nose, itchy eyes, a tickle in the throat,” Dr. Mangal explained.

In addition to the allergy testing, CareMed Urgent & Primary Care’s team of trained professionals offer comprehensive and cost-effective walk-in urgent and primary care services Monday-Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., and on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Although no appointment is necessary for urgent care, patients with non-urgent care needs who want to limit their wait time on arrival at CareMed may request an appointment online.

As to what people can expect when it comes to services, Dr. Mangal pointed out that upon arrival at its office, the company’s trained professionals will provide thorough assessment and treatment of adults and children with illnesses and injuries, such as: allergies, cold and flu, cough, sore throat, ear infection, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, cuts and other abrasions, orthopedic sprains and strains.

In-office X-ray services are provided for added convenience, Dr. Mangal noted, before mentioning that CareMed also offers primary care health services for patients in need of physicals (including school, camp, and sports physicals), immunizations and vaccinations, general exams (including gynecologic exams), and checkups.
