Finding the Answer with Allergy Testing

Get Tested at Scottsdale Our Integrative Medical Center

For men, women, and children suffering from allergies, determining the source of the problem can feel overwhelming. With the help of our experienced medical team at the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine, we can help patients find the cause of their symptoms safely and accurately. At our Scottsdale integrative medical center, we test for allergies using a variety of different methods. Whether we inject a solution under the skin, have the patient eat, or stop eating, certain foods, or put drops of extract under the tongue, we are able to determine what the patient may be reacting to.*

We can test for the following types of allergies:

  • Foods and food additives
  • Meats
  • Nuts and spices
  • Molds
  • Spring or fall pollen
  • Animals and bugs
  • Chemicals
  • Minerals
  • Vitamins and nutrients

How Do We Test For Allergies?

There are several different tests we can perform to test for allergies, based on a person's specific symptoms and medical history. These tests can include intradermal tests using needles to inject saline and histamine underneath the skin, sublingual tests which are helpful for children who dislike needles, elimination diet tests, blood testing, skin testing, and more.

Testing takes time and results can be seen in as little as a few minutes but could also take weeks or more (as with elimination diet testing). Multiple sessions may be needed depending on how many things are being tested for and how the patient reacts. At your initial consultation with our doctor, we will discuss your specific needs as well as the best possible testing option for you.*

  • I wanted to let people know that the AZ Center for Advanced Medicine is certainly worth a call!

    “In 2011 I realized that it was time to do something about my memory. I knew I needed the right kind of help, the right doctor. On www.acam.org I chose 3 possible naturalistic doctors and showed the names to my integrative doctor who was retiring. Then, I showed the names to my highly respected dentist as well. Both immediately said, “If you can get Martha Grout, she’s the one!” I called her office and learned that I could have a no-charge 15 minute telephone conversation with her to get my questions answered. I made an appointment to start testing and treatment.* Dr. Grout tested me and the test results showed 7 or 8 metals in the danger zone. My mother had died of Alzheimer’s disease when she was 74 years old. I wanted to live much longer than that! Chelation was the answer to reduce the dangerously high levels of deadly metals.* After a series of chelation, with tests taken at intervals to evaluate how I was progressing, my memory, and the tension I was feeling about it, is greatly improved.* AND, another possible effect of metal toxicity, the awful muscle, ligament, and joint pain I had been suffering from for so long has also been greatly diminished in the past few months.* Now, at 72 yrs. old, I am riding my bike 7 – 8 miles up and down hills, hiking and doing gardening…all without pain.* Oh, I may get some of the natural stiffness if I overdo after missing several days of exercise; this is normal to anyone. But the pain used to follow the slightest work/exercise.* Dr. Grout said that I lack certain enzymes which has caused the build-up of heavy metals. I take some supplements for my digestion and I will soon be on a reduced, maintenance chelation schedule to maintain my health.* I also chose to have sensitivity testing and learned that I needed to avoid dairy and wheat, which has improved how I feel.* Another benefit of all this has been the marvelous, kind, caring doctors, nurses, patients, everyone at AZ Center for Advanced Medicine.* I always look forward to being there. I have made new friends.* We share our stories and what we’ve learned. Dr. Grout and staff answer our questions and care about each and every patient. It’s an uplifting atmosphere.* I wanted to let people know that the AZ Center for Advanced Medicine is certainly worth a call,* and/or a visit to learn what can be done about any health problem you’re having. I’m so glad that I found this place.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • You folks have given me my life back. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    “My entire life I have had difficulty with digestion. I had unexplained hives from the age of 16. As an adult I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Eating no grains or glutens of any kind just chicken and fish and green veggies, I have lost 27 pounds and have had NO heartburn at all!* With the Vitamin B, Lipoic Acid and Omega 3 I now am not exhausted all the time either.* I have energy!!!* I know the gut will take a lot longer to heal as I am still having stool issues but I am starting to see a slight improvement there too.* I have not had any sugars including from any fruit now for 2 ½ months but I would really like to be able to have a little fruit and sweet potatoes. I want to make sure the yeast is gone before I do this. You folks have given me my life back.* Thank you from the bottom of my heart.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for my Son.

    “Do you remember us? You treated my son … years ago. I have since that time talked about your practice to everyone and anyone who will listen to me. I believe a couple of friends have brought their children to you as well. So just wanted to let you know that [he] was recently accepted into the University of Arizona. Another success story for you.* I am sure your practice changed his life.* I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for my Son. I wish you many, many years of continued success.* Be well and keep healing.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

    “I thank God for Dr. Grout and for this facility. With Dr. Grout’s diverse background she is many doctors in one.* I’ve been amazed by her professional medical expertise and also the team of doctors and nurses working together.* Fighting Lyme disease has not been a pleasant experience but Dr. Grout has always put me first in everything.* She does not do a “one size fits all” approach.* She is very attentive to each patient’s daily assessments.* The knowledge I have acquired from Dr. Grout will impact me for the rest of my life. *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.
