Allergies affect over 20% of Americans and an even higher percentage of children. This chronic condition can cause asthma and other respiratory complications and can severely lower the quality of life for sufferers. Patients can feel chronically tired and miserable when suffering the heights of the allergy season.
Over-the-counter allergy medication that do not provide lasting relief and leave consumers spending billions of dollars each year on these tablets.
Ancillary Medical Solutions is proud to offer a treatment option that truly gives your patients a way to feel better. Our partner specializes in identification, diagnosis and effectively treats allergies by implementing a complete solution. State of the art testing and home based immunotherapy are provided.
Patients are much more likely to persevere the length of treatment due to the relief they experience typically within three to four months of commencing treatment and the ease of continuation of treatment from home based therapy. The dropout rate for office based therapy is around 86% with patients seldom staying in treatment long enough to reduce or eradicate their symptoms.
The convenience for patients to perform their own treatment at home empowers the patient with convenience. Instead of spending time on multiple weekly office visits the patient can do their own treatment at home or use a caregiver.
