Child Allergy Testing & Treatment

When your child is suffering from allergy symptoms, our pediatric allergists are ready to help with advanced allergy testing that is fast and painless, and treatments that are individualized, natural and simple to administer to your baby, toddler or older child.

Allergies can be highly detrimental to your child’s health, well-being and comfort. As part of our commitment to offering comprehensive care to our young patients, we’ve made allergy testing and treatment services conveniently available in the comfort of our office, avoiding a trip to a specialist.

Allergy Testing

In just one 45 minute visit, Next Generation Pediatrics’ doctors can assist you in diagnosing allergies and in coming up with an individualized allergy treatment plan for your child.

Within 15 minutes we can detect up to 72 allergies, including foods such as milk, eggs, and wheat, as well as other common offenders such as pollen, dust, grass, pet dander, and mold.

We use advanced, painless allergy skin testing with no shots or scary needles.

Allergy Treatment

We use a system from Aller-Vision, which offers long-term treatment with allergy drops that are natural and extremely safe. In fact, there are more side effects with prescription and over-the-counter allergy medications.

This treatment is sublingual (under the tongue) and can be administered at home, saving time and the expense of going to the doctor’s office. You only need to visit our office every 12 weeks for a refill and quick follow-up appointment.

This service is very convenient, with no copay required! To make an appointment to get your child tested, please call us at (724) 482-2220. Our office is conveniently located at 100 Technology Drive, Suite 2, Butler, PA.
