1- Test: Allergy testing is made simple with patented FDA approved technology. One simple 15 min test will identify 58 of the most common local airborne allergens. Additional positive and negative controls are also included in the test to demonstrate effectiveness.

2- Diagnose: Only the highest quality glycerinated extracts are used to ensure efficacious positives. Positives are easy to read, measure, and record. Possible patients eligable for allergy testing include those suffering from asthma, chronic cough, sinusitis, as well as allergic rhinitis and conjunctivitis patients.

3- Treat: RightCare Family Practice has partnered with a national leader in allergy testing and immunotherapy who uses its Custom Immunotherapy Compounded Pharmacy Product to deliver unique immunotherapy options custom designed for your patient. Patient receives injections at increasing doses at 6 week intervals until maintenance dose is achieved. Patient self-administers subcutaneous doses 2 times a week for 18 months and returns for allergy testing again to be retested and to continue on a maintenance program.
