Services & Treatments
Although allergies are becoming more common, treatment is available. The Iowa Clinic’s team approach with an Allergist and Clinical Immunologist working with a team of ENT specialists makes us a one of a kind resource for patients in Central Iowa. If you suffer from an itchy or runny nose, excessive sneezing, hives, rashes, fatigue, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, swelling and/or pain, don’t suffer in silence, reach out to us for help.
We evaluate and treat patients with seasonal allergies, hives, recurrent infections, sublingual immunotherapy and possible immunodeficiencies. Iowa Clinic allergy physicians also conduct allergy vaccine immunotherapy, also known as allergy shots, in addition to infection vaccinations.
We also provide leading pediatric allergy care for infants and children of all ages. Pediatric allergies come in a variety of forms and can be caused by anything from dust mites and pet dander to food and medicine. The adverse reactions to food and medication allergies can come in many forms, including skin irritations, respiratory troubles, stomach issues, chills and sweats, and much more. You will work with our team of allergy specialists to find the best plan to alleviate your child’s allergic sensitivities.
