South Coast locals now have access to a dedicated Allergy Clinic located at our Medical Centre.
Dr Chris McCue heads the clinic where his team start by identifying patients’ allergic ‘triggers’ using diagnostics such as skin prick tests, blood tests and nasal endoscopy.
In addition to the skin prick test, they provide comprehensive advice about management, tailored to individual results.
According to the ASCIA (Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy), Skin Prick Testing is considered the gold standard for allergy testing. It has a high degree of accuracy for the diagnosis of allergic sensitivities and is well tolerated, carries low risk and delivers rapid results.In NSW allergy problems affect more than one in three people and it can be a difficult time for people of all ages with allergies.
Children are particularly at risk, along with people with asthma and eczema. Most people with allergies are allergic to more than one trigger, such as dust, pollens, pets or foods.
To book an appointment phone Ulladulla Endoscopy and Medical Centre on 4455 5422.
You can expect to be in the practice for between 40 minutes to an hour – this includes skin prick testing, consultation with a nurse and doctor, and a nasal examination if required.
