How Does a Doctor Diagnose Allergies?




Dr. Javier Hiriart, Pediatrician at Family Medicine Center at West Kendall Baptist Hospital explains that tests are really helpful in case to diagnose any allergy.

The specialist describes the physician can order skin (little sticks in the arms) or blood tests in order to help to identify more specific triggers to the allergies such as environment, medications, pets, meals or bee stings.
