Quest Diagnostics - 10020 Nicholas St
I highly recommend for anyone thinking of getting tested. From start to finish the whole process was hassle free and and very professional. I had my results very quickly and discreetly couldn't be happier with the service.

I had to bring my GSD in after he really hurt his paw and was limping badly. I wasn’t able to get through to his actual vet. Urgent Pet Care not only got him in right away/ they got him in early. The staff is amazing, from the woman at the front desk, to the vet assistant to the veterinarian herself. My boy is feeling so much better and I saw glimpses of his old self after treatment. It’s hard to trust others with your baby, but everyone here took such great care of him and I couldn’t be happier.

Allergy Testing FAQs

  • How do allergy tests work?

    A skin test or a blood test may be used for allergy testing. A skin test involves softly scratching the skin's surface using an instrument to apply a suspected allergen. You are allergic if your skin becomes reddened, swollen, or itchy.

    In some circumstances, such as when a severe adverse reaction to a skin test is suspected, blood tests are employed. Your blood will be submitted to a lab for testing to see if you have antibodies to certain allergens.

  • How long does it take to get allergy test results?

    Allergy skin testing is really quick. Any reactions, which usually happen within 20 minutes, will be watched. You may feel redness or swelling a few hours following the test in some situations. Because a blood sample must be submitted to a laboratory for analysis, blood tests take longer. As a result, the findings may take several days to arrive.

  • How long does allergy testing take?

    The length of time it takes to do an allergy test is determined by the type of test. A skin test requires you to stay at the doctor's office while your reactions are evaluated. This usually takes between 20 and 40 minutes. Scratch tests, on the other hand, can be inconclusive at times, and your doctor may wish to conduct more testing. Drawing a blood sample takes only a few minutes if you are only doing a blood test.

  • How much does an allergy test cost?

    Allergy testing costs vary significantly based on the type of test and the number of allergens screened. A skin test, for example, can cost anywhere from $60 to $300, plus there may be an additional fee for an allergist appointment. Blood testing might cost anything from $200 and $1,000.

  • Does insurance cover allergy testing?

    If you have health insurance, allergy testing may be covered by your policy. To find out exactly what is covered, contact your insurance company. A copay may be required. The copay for a specialist may be more than the copay for a primary care physician under some insurance policies. A separate charge from the laboratory will be sent if you undergo a blood test, which may or may not be reimbursed by insurance.

  • How do I read allergy test results?

    Following an allergy test, your doctor will look for wheals and flares, which are skin reactions. A wheal is a skin rash that is elevated, red, and itchy. Wheals come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and some of them have a white center. The red region surrounding the wheal is known as a flare. A greater wheal and flare will be caused by stronger allergic reactions.

  • How accurate are allergy tests?

    Testing for allergies isn't a precise science. They can sometimes produce a false positive, indicating the presence of an allergy when none exists. They may also fail to cause an allergic reaction to anything you are allergic to. On other occasions, you may react differently to the same allergy test. Some drugs can also affect the outcome of allergy tests.

  • Where should I get an allergy test?

    Allergists, or doctors who specialize in allergies, frequently do allergy tests. You can ask your health care physician to refer you to an allergist if you have one.

In the United States, more than 50 million people suffer from allergies. Allergies occur in families and are especially prevalent in youngsters. They can, however, start at any age. Allergies can go away for a while and then reappearance years later.

Allergies can flare up at any time in your life when your body's defenses are compromised, such as during pregnancy or following an illness. The sooner you recognize an allergy, the sooner you can avoid triggers and find relief from your symptoms.

Allergies come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they can manifest themselves in a variety of ways. Pollen, dust mites, animal dander, bug bites, some drugs, and mold are all common allergens. Sneezing, watery eyes, a runny nose, sinus congestion, coughing, or a skin rash are all signs of an allergic reaction. Certain illnesses, such as asthma or eczema, might be made worse by allergies. You may have an allergy if your symptoms continue longer than two weeks and come back.

An allergy test can help you identify specific allergens and triggers if you suspect you have allergies. Then, in collaboration with your healthcare professional, you can create a treatment plan to help you avoid allergens in the future.

To effectively diagnose an allergy, multiple allergy tests may be required. Your doctor may request a second skin test if the first one is inconclusive. Food allergy testing is more complicated and typically necessitates an exclusion diet. During an elimination diet, you will eliminate probable allergens from your diet and gradually reintroduce them one at a time to see whether you have any reactions. Dairy, eggs, peanuts, wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish are all common food sensitivities.
