Columbus, OH (PRWEB) October 08, 2013
Premier Allergy is offering needle free testing at its eight locations in the Columbus, Ohio area. The tests can screen for a wide range of afflictions, including environmental allergies and food allergies.
Many allergy doctors only offer needle testing for patients who are suffering from allergic reactions. Premier Allergy offers an exciting alternative that does not require the puncturing of patient’s skin. Instead of metal needles, this option uses plastic lancets. Not only is the no needle testing option less painful, it is also more accurate. While the needle free method does cost more for the clinic, Premier Allergy offers it to patients at the same price as traditional needle testing.
“No needle allergy testing is a great alternative for patients who might otherwise be hesitant to come to one of our clinics for screening,” said Dr. Summit Shah, lead allergist at Premier Allergy. “As it doesn’t use metal needles, it is ideal for small children who are afraid of needles, as well as adults with serious doctor-related phobias.”
Allergic reactions occur when the body’s immune system mistakenly identifies a harmless substance as a dangerous pathogen. There is debate in the medical community as to what causes allergies, but studies have shown that genetic factors may increase the likelihood of developing allergies. There are several therapeutic and condition management treatments that can minimize and even eliminate the symptoms in sufferers.
