Allergy & Immunology

When a person has an allergic reaction, it means their immune system mistakenly believes a substance is harmful and responds by trying to eliminate it. Allergic reactions can be mild, like a runny nose, or in rare cases, cause difficulty breathing, swelling of the throat and tongue, or even loss of consciousness.

Allergic disorders affect a large percentage of the population and represent some of the most common chronic medical conditions. While allergic disorders are very common, they are also very complex and require detailed care from a specialist. Dr. Libby Kelly provides consultation, testing, treatment and continuing care for allergies and allergic conditions, plus testing and treatment for disorders of the immune system, including:

  • Anaphylaxis
  • Allergy shots
  • Hay fever & chronic nasal problems
  • Asthma
  • Chronic cough
  • Drug allergy
  • Allergic skin conditions, including eczema
  • Food allergy
  • Bee sting allergy
  • Recurrent or chronic sinusitis
  • Hives
  • Swelling disorders
  • Immune deficiency

Convenient Shot Room Hours

What are allergy shots?

Allergy shots contain a small amount of the allergens to which a person is sensitive. Over time, allergy shots change the way the immune system responds to allergens, leading to vastly improved symptoms. Allergy shots can help hayfever (itchy nose, throat, ears, and eyes, as well as nasal congestion/runny nose, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, etc.), asthma, and bee sting allergy. The cost of immunotherapy will depend on your insurance coverage. Regardless of insurance payment, immunotherapy has been shown to be less expensive over time than allergy medications.

If we decided allergy shots are right for you, we accept walk in appointments anytime during our allergy shot room hours:

  • Monday, Wednesday, Friday - 8:00 am to 4:30 pm
