Procedures Performed

Dr. Engler says..

Allergen immunotherapy, either shots or drops, has been shown to be effective not only in controlling allergy symptoms while you take them, but continue to be effective for years after you finish taking them, if you have been on a high enough dose for a long enough period of time.

That last part, starting with "if..." is very important.

The dose of your allergy shots makes all the difference as to whether they work or not.  Many doctors who call themselves "allergists" have no formal training in allergy and immunology.

At The Allergy Clinic and Houston Allergy and Asthma Clinic, we are able to get your dose of allergy shots up to the effective dose very quickly, either with RUSH or CLUSTER.  With RUSH, you are in our office for a full day while we desensitize you over the course of that day.  Is it safe?  Yes!  We are the innovators of RUSH in Houston and performed the procedure over 3,000 times since 1996.  CLUSTER is basically RUSH broken up into 8 or 9 parts.  You receive 3 or 4 sets of allergy shots over the course of an hour or two, once or twice a week, for a couple months before reaching maintenance dose.

ONCE A MONTH:

Once the dose of your allergy shots is high enough, you only have to take maintenance shots once a month.

DROPS:

We also offer drops!

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Engler's Care Philosophy

Sneezing. Wheezing. Runny nose. Throat clearing. Chronic cough. These are just a few of the symptoms of allergies and asthma. if you are bothered by any of these, The Allergy Clinic can help. When you choose The Allergy Clinic, you're assured of a complete allergy evaluation by nationally recognized experts who listen to you. If there is something you're confused about, we will carefully explain it to you, in language you can understand. We emphasize patient education. After all, we realize more than anyone that there is a lots of confusion out there about allergies, and how they can be treated.
