"I have had horrible allergies for years. Prior to coming to Crosstimbers ENT, I had as many as 5 sinus infections each year, which meant I had as many rounds of antibiotics prescribed by my GP. Since opting for a relationship with Crosstimbers, I have learned effective alternative methods of controlling my sinus issues. I still have allergies, but I haven't had a sinus infection in nearly 3 years. Thanks to Allergy Specialist, Jennifer Taylor, she has identified my allergies and she is doing an awesome job of helping me overcome my issues. Thanks Jennifer Taylor, Jennifer Paris and Dr Shellenberger."- D.B. / Google / May 12, 2021

How do allergy shots work?
At Cross Timbers ENT, our ENT specialists typically prescribe the following therapies for allergies:
- Allergy shots: This treatment involves injecting a small amount of a specific allergen into the body to gain greater resistance to the allergen or to reduce one's sensitivity. Most patients experience great results after about one year of treatment.
- Allergy drops: This therapy entails placing a small amount of an allergen under your tongue. As you’re exposed to the allergen over time, your body becomes desensitized to it.
- Other solutions: In some cases, a prescription medication may be needed to minimize allergic reactions and symptoms. This might include emergency epinephrine (EpiPen). During your exam, our team will discuss the benefits and limitations of all your treatment options to determine which option is best for you.
