PacMed Allergy and Immunology – Beacon Hill
Allergens—the substances that cause the allergic reaction or disease—can be as complex as the diseases and conditions they cause. At Pacific Medical Centers, our allergy specialists provide the very best treatment available. Whether it’s hay fever (allergic rhinitis), asthma, a bee sting allergy or a skin rash (eczema), Pacific Medical Centers’ allergy specialists treat conditions in which the body’s immune system reacts abnormally to a substance.
We treat patients with a wide variety of allergic conditions and diseases, including:
- Severe hay fever
- Dust and pollen allergies
- Food allergies
- Allergies to animal dander (pet allergies)
We also diagnose and treat patients who have:
- Contact dermatitis
- Latex allergies
- Connective tissue diseases such as lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus), scleroderma and rheumatoid arthritis
- Inflammation of a blood vessel (vasculitis)
- Severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis)
These are just some of the conditions our allergists diagnose and treat. Allergy specialists at Pacific Medical Centers may treat severe allergies with allergy shots (immunotherapy) or other methods.
