We have re-decorated the RUSH room in each of locations; the RUSH room is where we perform the RUSH procedure. That's where you get the first six months of allergy shots all in one day. We installed flat screen TVs with built-in DVD players, and got satellite or cable so you can surf the channels while the nurse gets you desensitized to those dust mites and cats. Since you're sitting down from 8:30 am until 3 or 4 pm, we got comfortable lounge chairs. All of our locations have wireless internet access (wi-fi).
Allergy shots have to be started at a low, safe dose, but the shots don't work until you reach a high, effective dose. After RUSH, patients take allergy shots once a week for a short period of time, but our goal is to have our maintenance dose patients at once per month. To give you the best chance to keep feeling better when you stop taking allergy shots, they should be taken for 3 to 5 years.
We have now successfully performed RUSH IT in over 2,000 patients since 1995, performing the procedure hundreds of time each year. We're doing this procedure on Fannin Street, in Pasadena, in Pearland, and at Houston Allergy and Asthma Clinic on the first floor of the 1200 Binz building, just north of Hermann Park.
Our three-day pre-medication results in our lower side effect profile. Previously, pre-medication schedules for RUSH were just for one day.
So, if you want to achieve the unique benefit that only allergy shots provide, but you don't want to put up with six months of co-pays, inconvenience, and needle sticks, give us a call. Even if you see another board certified allergist, we can RUSH you using their serum, then send you back to them for your maintenance allergy shots.
