On-Site Allergy Testing Options

Providers working with United Allergy Services can test patients for a variety of allergies, including environmental, food, and penicillin — all while retaining continuity of care by keeping them under their supervision. With access to on-site allergy testing through their primary care provider, patients save time and avoid additional trips to a specialist to receive the care they need.

All of our on-site allergy testing is conducted through a safe and needle-free skin-prick method. Under the fully-staffed Allergy Center model, a Clinical Allergy Specialist will give the patient their results during their appointment. Providers utilizing the Allergy Testing Kit will receive the confirmed allergy test results from our Customer Support Team, typically within 48 hours, and can then share them with their patients.

As part of our service, we’ll provide marketing and educational materials that will raise awareness of your services and answer questions your patients may have. Patients that test positive will receive important information on next steps, treatment options, avoidance tips, and more to ensure they know how to manage their allergies moving forward.

Environmental Allergy Testing

Our core service offering is our environmental allergy testing, which tests patients for 54 of their most geographically relevant allergens. These include tree, grass and weed pollen, molds, cat and dander, cockroach and dust mite. We will provide you with screening documentation to assess the patient’s symptomology, medical history and potential contraindications to determine whether they may benefit from allergy testing and/or treatment.

Patients who test positive can then be presented with multiple options for treating their environmental allergies: allergy shots (subcutaneous immunotherapy) and allergy drops (sublingual immunotherapy). Both modalities are safe and proven effective in delivering long-term symptom relief. Immunotherapy is the only proven disease-modifying method of treating allergies.

Food Allergy Testing

Food allergy awareness is a nationwide health issue and a part of our comprehensive service offering. Through our food allergy testing, you can help determine whether a patient has a food allergy or intolerance, giving them the awareness, peace of mind and education they need.

We test for up to 23 foods, including:

  • Milk
  • Soy
  • Wheat
  • Eggs
  • Peanuts
  • Tree nuts
  • Fish
  • Shellfish

Penicillin Allergy Testing

While penicillin is the most commonly reported drug allergy in America, nine out of 10 patients reporting a penicillin allergy are not truly allergic. Correctly identifying those who are not actually penicillin allergic has multiple benefits to the patient and public health:

  • Patients can be prescribed more appropriate antibiotics that are less expensive and less toxic
  • Communities can better combat the risk of super-bugs through wider penicillin availability
