Get Allergy Testing in Scottsdale at 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.*

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.*

Can I Develop Allergies As I Get Older?

It is possible that you may experience symptoms of allergies, as an adult, that you didn't have as a child. These changes could be attributed to a weakened immune system or changes in environment.

Can An Allergy Lead To Anaphylaxis?

In some cases an allergy can result in a potential life-threatening reaction such as anaphylaxis. Allergy testing is an important step in determining the severity of your allergies.

From Our Previous Patients

  • The technicians made me feel so comfortable.

    “I wanted to let you know that I had a really good experience with the whole process of scheduling the thermos and with the test itself. I always god a callback whenever I left a message lll and they were always so professional and friendly. The staff was flexible with working to meet my scheduling needs. They sent me all of the paperwork and prep instructsion ahead of time. They also were patient with waiting for the script from my doctor’s office the day of. And what a great experience the Thermo was in contrast to Mammos I’ve had in the past. The technicians explained everything very well, made me feel comfortable, and even played music while I was adjusting to the room temperature. The test went so smoothly, and I am relieved to have the results back so quickly. It all just reinforced my decision to opt for a Thermo rather than a Memmo.”

  • I am so thankful to you this Thanksgiving weekend for giving me my health and my life back!

    “I am so thankful to you this Thanksgiving weekend for giving me my health and my life back! Good news- I am still good and not reacting to fluorescent lights anymore. Also I seem to be reacting to chemicals less than before. I have lost that totally grounded feeling, but no more panic attacks and I can work all day without any neurological symptoms. I have had no neuro symptoms at all since I had the [Chiren] treatment in September. This is so amazing!!! I can even drink coffee and wine in small amounts now. Yeah! But have to stick to the gluten free/dairy free diet because I now get asthma symptoms when I eat anything that has gluten or dairy in it. Also my stomach can’t handle dairy any more since I’ve been off it so long. So I can’t put milk in my coffee – oh well. Had a few no-nos yesterday for the holiday and am feeling it in my chest today. Also itching- ears, eyes and skin on my face. Weird- it’s almost like I get when I am exposed to a cat. The best thing is that I am not getting any neurological symptoms anymore and I feel totally normal. I can handle a little respiratory reaction every now and then and I have my inhaler if I get into any breathing trouble. So far it has been mild and just annoying. My whole family is now gluten free and everyone is doing great! No one has been sick for the last 6 months. : ) My son, off gluten, is amazing. He just brought home a report card of straight A’s and has no more twitching or tics. *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • Definitely a game changer!

    “I just wanted to take a moment to email you to say thank you for your very detailed testing and even considering Lyme as a possible suspect to my ailments.* Had I not gone to see you I would have never even thought of Lyme as a reason for my weakness on my right arm and leg.* In your recommendations you had stated you wanted me to possibly get checked for Lyme and I asked and asked and not one insurance doctor would do the test.* Everyone said that there was no reason to check. Well, we moved to Virginia at the end of November and finally about three weeks ago the neurologist that I went to see for my migraines here tested me for Lyme. The results came back equivocal (1.10 on Elisa) and she simply stated that they found antibodies in my blood. And she started me on Doxycycline (100mg 2x day) for 21 days. I don’t know much about Lyme but will be seeing an infectious disease doctor on Wednesday. In the meantime, we had our newborn (born 1/21/13) tested with the Western blot and another test and per the pediatrician the results were negative. We will continue praying that he will not be affected. … Thank you very much for being that little guiding light that led us in the right direction.* Once again Dr.Grout, continue to do what you do.* You were definitely a game changer for sure.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • My life changed when I began treatment at the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine.

    “I have suffered with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) and Diabetes Type 2 for a number of years. As the MCS progressively worsened over the years, I was basically confined to my home. Certain activities of daily living became impossible or extremely difficult for me to do; shopping, pumping gas, traveling, attending religious services. I began to socialize less and less with friends and family, due to their homes or they themselves not being environmentally friendly. Their laundry detergent, perfumes, or deodorant would cause me to become very ill. My diabetes was also out of control, even with traditional prescription drugs including insulin. My life changed when I began treatment at the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine.* My diabetes is finally stable with the correct diet, supplements, and exercise regimen.* My MCS no longer has complete control over my life.* I still avoid chemical exposure as much as possible but with supplements and a personal air purifier I am now able to be more independent and enjoy a social life once again.* My quality of life has significantly improved only after 2 months of treatment!* I cannot thank them enough!* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.
