Allergy & Immunology

Allergy & Immunology

At the Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Institute, we offer highly effective advanced treatments in the areas of Allergy, Immunology, Respiratory, and Skin Disorders. Allergy occurs when the immune system attacks relatively harmless allergens such as dust mite and wreaks havoc on the body with symptoms such as sneezing, rashes, itching, or shortness of breath. Our treatments are comprehensive and designed specifically to get the best results for you. We offer state-of-the-art testing and a thorough approach to treating each individual’s condition. We treat all ages – infants, children, adults, and older adults – and strive to provide you with excellent and effective care. It’s time to stop suffering and get to the root cause of your condition!

What you can expect on your first visit:
Your first visit to Dr. Rafi is very comprehensive. We take your history to learn all aspects of your condition and perform an initial examination. Most likely, we will perform skin testing during this visit. It might be skin testing for classic allergies or patch testing for allergic contact dermatitis. We also test for exhaled nitric oxide (called FeNO) to determine the level of allergic inflammation in your lungs. We offer spirometry for assessment of lung function. We can perform nasal endoscopy with a flexible fiber optic endoscopy to assess for nasalpolyps, deviated septum, and candidiasis.
