Albany ENT & Allergy Services offers comprehensive evaluation and treatment of allergic disorders affecting the ears, nose, throat and skin as well as asthma, animal and food allergies and chemical sensitivities.
Ear, Nose & Throat Doctors (Otolaryngoloists) play a leading role nationally in the management of patients with allergy-mediated respiratory, head, neck, and related problems.
Our physicians are Otolaryngic Allergists. An Otolaryngic Allergist is a physician specially trained to diagnose the cause of allergic disease and treat the specific condition. To become an Otolaryngic Allergist a physician completes:
- Four years of medical school
- Five years of training in otolaryngology and head and neck surgery
- Obtains certification from the American Board of Otolaryngology with fellowship certification from the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy
Otolaryngic Allergy is the largest subspecialty field within otolaryngology, head and neck surgery in the United States and has been practiced for decades by otolaryngologists who complete the educational requirements of the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy.
One of the reasons otolaryngologists are involved in otolaryngic allergy is because many of the ear, nose and throat symptoms our patients experience are in fact allergy-mediated.
Being educated in the allergy specialty allows for a more comprehensive approach to providing the best possible medical care to our patients.
The Allergy Center is open weekdays from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm with extended hours 7:30 to 5:30 pm on Wednesdays. Our dedicated allergy nursing staff provides our allergy patients with personalized patient care and support. Immunotherapy (allergy shots and sublingual drops) and testing is provided to many patients each year.
