How may we help you and your family today?
Allergy Services are provided in our Specialists Department, by Paul Shapero, MD. Dr. Shapero specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of asthma and other allergy-related diseases and is trained to identify the factors that trigger asthma or allergy symptoms. Services and treatment include:
- Allergy testing
- Prevention education
- Medication prescriptions
- Immunotherapy (Allergy Shots)
Consult your primary care provider about seeing an allergist should you have asthma or allergy symptoms that are interfering with your ability to carry out day-to-day activities, if you experience seasonal allergies for several months of the year, if over the counter medications do not improve your symptoms or cause unacceptable side-effects, or if you have chronic conditions such as recurrent sinus infections, nasal congestion or difficulty breathing.
Dr. Shapero sees both PCHC patients and non-PCHC patients by referral. This service is limitied to patients with MaineCare or Affordable Care Plan.
