When you choose The Allergy Clinic, you're assured of a complete allergy evaluation by nationally recognized experts who listen to you.

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!
