Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Thompson "Allergy symptoms may affect the nasal passages, eyes, skin, lungs, or digestive system. Itchy eyes, sneezing, stuffy nose, wheezing, and hives are common reactions to allergens. Sometimes, more dangerous whole-body reactions can occur which can cause severe hives, shortness of breath and throat-swelling. Whether you’re affected by seasonal or food allergies, the team of allergy care professionals at Texan Allergy & Sinus Center are ready to work with you to provide treatment options and achieve long-lasting relief."
