At Austin Family Allergy & Asthma, we’d like to extend a warm thank you to all of our patients and families for making 2017 such a wonderful and successful year! Your patience and loyalty during the practice transition was greatly appreciated.
2017 has been a special year and we are very excited about new testing and treatments we now offer:
– This summer we enrolled our first patient in peanut oral immunotherapy (OIT). He has now advanced to safely eating 12 peanuts a day! We have also enrolled 7 other patients in the program including one adult.
– We now offer antibiotic testing for penicillin, amoxicillin and Augmentin. With skin testing and dose challenge, most patients are now able to safely take these antibiotics and found to no longer be allergic to these important antibiotics, which are usually first-line agents for common sinus, ear, throat, and respiratory infections.
– We have expanded our program for SLIT, also known as allergy drops. As our allergy drops were so popular and successful for cedar and oak seasons, we now offer allergy drops for all the major Central Texas allergens including molds and pets.
We look forward to a spectacular 2018 and wish all a happy New Year!
Our office will be closed Dec 30-Jan 1 and reopen at 730 am on Jan 2.
