SimpsonAllergy and Asthma physician at ARC Cedar Park Medical Plaza and ARC Far West Medical Tower, recently discussed using allergy shots as a solution to environmental allergies.

In this podcast from a recent ARC Healthcare Minute, Dr. Simpson explains the science behind allergy shots.

The treatment involves injections of gradually increasing doses of the allergen.”
