Allergy & Immunology

Allergies are more than an irritation. They can be serious and sometimes, even deadly. That’s exactly why INTEGRIS Health allergy specialists and immunologists take your allergies very seriously.

Say goodbye to your allergy symptoms.

Allergies Holding You Back?

Oklahomans are no strangers to seasonal allergies, but many people also suffer year-round from food environmental, food or drug-related allergens. Most allergic reactions happen when your immune system reacts to a false alarm. Normally, your body defends itself against harmful things, such as viruses or bacteria. But the defenses also attack mild things, such as dust, mold, pollen and other environmental triggers at various times of the year, depending on your sensitivities. This results in varying degrees of symptoms, such as itchy eyes and sneezing to hives and even life-threatening anaphylaxis.

Ditch the Itch

At INTEGRIS Health Allergy and Immunology, our specialists evaluate and treat patients with asthma and allergies, including rhinitis, sinusitis or dermatitis, physical allergies and hypersensitivities to drugs. We also care for patients with allergies to environmental factors, immune deficiencies, frequent infections and inflammatory diseases of other types. Because allergic disease and immune deficiencies most often develop in the pediatric population, we also have a specialized focus on treatment options for children, and how these immune issues can affect a child's development and nutrition.
