Allergy Shot Department

Our Allergy Specialists have an active practice of nasal allergy.  For those patients who are not controlled with avoidance or medications, allergy testing and immunotherapy are available.  Although allergy testing and the initial injections are given in our office, it is possible for patients to subsequently take their allergy serum home and give this themselves if that is more convenient for them.  Many patients, however, prefer to continue to come to our offices for their injections and visit with our devoted allergy technicians.

We also now offer a no-needle sublingual immunotherapy as an alternative to traditional methods.

Office Hours

The above offices are open from 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday.

Please call our allergy hotline for allergy shot hours: (859) 572-3042 (updated daily).

We have tried to provide office hours that are convenient for our patients. We ask that you be at our offices no later than 30 minutes before closing. This allows us adequate time to treat you and allows enough time for you to wait after receiving your injection, if necessary.

Patients who are starting a new vial of serum, or patients who are advancing the strength of their serum, will need to have those treatments done while a physician is present in the office. Physicians are usually in the offices by 1 p.m. Our offices are closed on holidays. Should an office be closed or a doctor not be expected, every effort will be made to inform you in advance.

You are urged to choose the most convenient office for you to receive your injections. However, if for any reason you need to change locations, please inform us in advance so that your records may be transferred to the proper office.


Follow Up Visits

These visits are an important part of your allergy care and management. You will be expected to see your doctor two or three months after beginning your injections and once a year thereafter. This visit allows an assessment of your condition and, if necessary, changes can be made by your doctor to maximize the effectiveness of your treatment plan.


Taking Injections Outside Of Our Offices

Should you wish to receive your injections at your family doctor’s office you may do so at any time. If you would like to receive your injections at home, you must first be on a maintenance dose and tolerating your injections well. We recommend that a trained medical professional give you your injections, but we will train you to give your own injections if you wish. Your vaccine supply should last nine to ten weeks. After your eighth dose, you should call our office to order your next vial of vaccine. You will need to receive the first injection of each new vial in our office. Then you may take the vaccine home.


Treatment

Once your evaluation is complete, a treatment plan will be initiated. The treatment plan may include any or all of the following: Avoidance, Medication, Environmental Control or Immunotherapy.

The best and least expensive method of treating your allergy disorder is to avoid the allergy troublemaker.

Elimination diets, skin tests and blood tests may help track down the offending substance. Once an allergy troublemaker is identified, it can often be avoided.

When you are allergic to something you cannot avoid (especially pollen, molds and house dust), a series of injections may lessen your sensitivity. The injections are administered once a week, beginning with a small dose. Each week, the dose is increased for a period of six weeks until you reach a maintenance dose.

Keep in mind once you reach a maintenance dose it usually takes three to six months for you to notice a difference on your injections. Some people notice a difference right away, it all depends on the individual.

If at any time while on immunotherapy, you need to take a supplemental allergy medication to help alleviate allergy symptoms, feel free to do but if at anytime while on allergy injections you are having uncontrolled allergy symptoms which medication or injections are not working, please make an appointment to see your doctor here.
