At Virginia Allergy & Asthma Institute, we pride ourselves on taking the time to get to know our patients and working with them to understand their lifestyles and the environments in which they live and work. This enables us to provide more informed diagnoses, better identify potential allergens or asthma triggers, and develop the most effective treatment and management plans.. It's a shame for you to suffer from sneezing,coughing or scratching when Dr Vilseck can treat you and make you feel better today Allergy,Asthma and Immunology Service stop.
Our board certified allergists,nurse practitioner and registered nurses are specially trained in the treatment of allergic conditions. As a first step towards diagnosing allergies,an extensive history and physical would be performed in our office by one of our board certified allergists or nurse practitioner. If your history indicates possible allergic problems,we would suggest allergy skin and/or blood testing. Allergy skin testing can be initiated on your first visit to our office.
Allergies can also induce asthma; therefore,if this is indicated in your history and physical,we would suggest allergy testing as well as pulmonary function testing (lung capacity test) to establish the level of your asthma.
Our primary panel of allergy skin tests consists of 32 different airborne allergens. Airborne allergens consist of a variety of trees,grasses,weeds,molds,dust,mite and animal dander. Many times foods and pollens cross react. Therefore,we may recommend food testing as part of your complete allergy work up.
Many times people with asthma also have allergic disorders. We treat our allergic asthmatic patients just as we do our allergic patients. Skin testing would be recommended,as well as pulmonary function testing.
