Allergy Testing Diagnostics

No two patients are the same. Targeting allergy treatment specific to your patients’ needs requires clear and accurate diagnoses. Allergychoices can help you provide both, with diagnostic tools that work seamlessly with the La Crosse Method™ Protocol for customizing treatment based on each patient’s individual allergic fingerprint.
