Allergy and Immunotherapy

We are excited to offer in-office airborne allergy testing and at-home immunotherapy just in time to bring relief for Tennessee’s spring allergy season! This innovative methodology will provide effective therapy with a more convenient immunotherapy routine (allergy shots).   You will be trained to give your therapy in your own home, with less office visits than typical immunotherapy routines.  We will begin by offering this to patients who are 12 or older.

Call 865-539-0270 and make an appointment with your provider today to discuss if this is right for you.

What allergies do we test for?

We test for animals such as cats, dog, horses, hamsters, and guinea pigs;  mites, various trees, plants, weeds, grasses, and fungi.

How is this different from typical allergy shot routines?

You will benefit by participating in BioTek’s Airborne Immunotherapy treatment protocol. As an alternative to traditional allergy desensitization treatment where you have to drive to the allergists’ office EVERY TIME to receive treatment, BioTek’s program teaches the patient to “self-administer” the Airborne Immunotherapy with “injections” that are taken every other day. The needle is very small and inserted just under the skin.  You will only need come into the office when you increase your dose, as you increasingly become desensitized to your offending allergens.   Translation: You receive convenient and effective allergy desensitization designed to eliminate the cause of your allergic conditions.

Is this service covered by insurance?

Most insurance companies cover this affordable service.  BioTek will work with your insurance company to get precertification, and you will know your cost prior to getting started.
