Our ENTAllergy Treatment Plans are Designed Specifically for You.
We Provide Effective Immunotherapy Relief for Adults and Children.
Now that we have tested for the ENTAllergens that cause your symptoms, we can formulate a plan to desensitize your immune system long-term and minimize your ENTAllergy symptoms in the meantime. Your personal treatment plan can include options such as
- avoidance strategies to protect you from your ENTAllergy triggers as much as possible
- immunotherapy injections to gradually increase your tolerance to ENTAllergens
- sublingual immunotherapy (S.L.I.T.) drops to gradually increase your tolerance to ENTAllergens.
The exact details of the treatment plan depend on your specific ENTAllergies, the severity of your reaction, and your lifestyle and preferences.
No two people respond to ENTAllergy triggers or to immunotherapy the same way. Our ENTAllergy specialty team will monitor your response and progress regularly during your treatment to make adjustments and keep you on the best course as your immune system responds.
What are the Advantages of ENTAllergy Drops?
Both ENTAllergy injections and sublingual drops are most often used to treat inhalant allergies caused by pollens, animal dander, molds and dust mites. Injections are one method of treatment that is effective but not always popular with patients. Sublingual drops are administered via a drop under the tongue, making this a great treatment plan for kids and busy parents. ENTAllergy drops are recommended for asthmatic patients.
Side effects related to ENTAllergy drop immunotherapy treatment are generally mild. Patients may experience itching or tingling inside of the mouth or mild swelling beneath the tongue. Uncommon reactions may include wheezing, stomach irritation, and nausea in asthmatic patients. Instances of severe allergic reaction are exceedingly rare. This means you can administer them conveniently at home.
Answers to Questions About Treating ENTAllergies
What is Immunotherapy?
Unlike medications that only treat symptoms temporarily, immunotherapy addresses the underlying cause of ENTAlleries. Immunotherapy injections and sublingual drops are administered in gradually increasing dosages until the patient develops long-term tolerance to the ENTAllergy-causing substance.
What kinds of ENTAllergies can be treated with sublingual drops?
One benefit of sublingual drops is that they can treat a broad range of ENTAllergies including those caused by dust mites, pollen, mold, animals, foods, and seasonal allergies such as grass, trees, and ragweed.
What are the advantages of ENTAllergy drops?
ENTAllergy drops are a viable option with significant advantages for people of all ages:
- Lower cost, fewer clinic visits. Compared to shots, sublingual drops typically cost less and require fewer clinic visits. Most patients receiving sublingual drops need only a few clinic visits the first year, and then once every 6-12 months thereafter until visits are no longer needed.
- More convenient. You can take sublingual drops at home, or wherever you are, making it much easier to follow your treatment plan.
- Less medication. Our patients report, and research confirms, that they typically need less medication to control symptoms after beginning sublingual drops.
- Enjoy healthier days. The end benefit of taking drops consistently - Feeling Better. Patients typically report fewer clinic visits, hospitalizations, and less time lost from work and school.

What our patients are saying...
After seeing their many ads I convinced Dad to "just have a hearing test." I wish he could use the computer himself to say how sorry he was to have waited so long to get help. This is a wonderful group, and it is easy to see that they truly care about us and enjoy what they do, which is help people hear again. Definitely recommend!

Dr. Sheldon Greenberg took care of my deviated septum in my nose, and I am now able to breathe normally at 100% for the first time in 12 years! On top of that, cosmetically my nose, after having to be re-broken during the procedure looks natural, like it looked before it broke in my accident 12 years ago! Highly recommend if you are having breathing issues due to your nose. You will indeed be a changed person. Staff is awesome, also extremely friendly and welcoming.

I'm cured! Thanks, Dr. Weiss, Michelle, Lisa, and everyone else. I recovered quickly from surgery, and my allergies are clearing up. Feeling great!

If you have any difficulty breathing through your nose or any difficulty with your nose in general, look no further than Dr. Weiss. Dr. Weiss did my surgery on October 5, 2016, which was not as big a deal as I anticipated. Now I can breathe like I've never been able to breathe before. It was the greatest sensation to be able to breathe through my nose. Thank you Dr Weiss for doing an excellent, fantastic, outstanding job.

I am so grateful for this practice! For years and years, I suffered terribly from severe sinus infections brought on by every single little cold I'd catch. Dr. Weiss took the conservative approach with the balloon surgery to expand the access to and from the sinuses. This was painless and required no recovery time...It has been life changing. Dr. Weiss is a caring and skilled doctor to whom I'm grateful for giving me a much better quality of life. The practice, all of the staff members, are caring and fun, and I can't recommend it highly enough!

I wish I could give 10 stars! Our experience could not have been better! Thank you guys, for all the time you took to make my little man hear again. Now he can hear me when I tell him I love him.
