Asthma - Allergy Specialists
Allergies are the result of an abnormal response of the immune system to a foreign substance known as an allergen. This abnormal response results in a variety of symptoms depending on the type of allergic condition. Dr. Jacqueline Eghrari-Sabet, Dr. Gina Dapul- Hidalgo, or Neshat Tebyanian, CRNP can provide relief from all types of allergies including:
Seasonal allergies (hay fever, trees, grasses, ragweed)
Skin allergies (hives, rashes, eczema)
Pet allergies (cats and dogs)
Cosmetic allergies (soaps, make-up, perfume)
There are many triggers that can produce symptoms of asthma and lead to rapid worsening of breathing. Triggers may include pollen, animal dander, dust mites, mold, chemical exposure, smoke, and viruses. Common symptoms of asthma include breathlessness, wheezing, coughing, and chest tightness. To diagnose asthma, Dr. Eghrari-Sabet, Dr. Dapul- Hidalgo, or Cara Abbondandolo will look at your health history and conduct an in-office pulmonary function testing. They also perform an innovative test called Exhaled Nitrous Oxide (eNO) measurement, which helps determine the amount of lung inflammation.
Once Dr. Eghrari-Sabet, Dr. Dapul- Hidalgo, or Cara Abbondandolo diagnoses your asthma, an individualized treatment plan will be developed to help get you on the road to good health right away. Regardless of which of these treatments you receive, controlling your asthma is an attainable goal. Some of the methods our clinicians use are:
Activity and lifestyle modification
Allergy shots (immunotherapy)
Solutions for other conditions
