White Salmon, Wash. – With one in three Americans suffering from allergies, Skyline Hospital is taking an active role to diagnose and treat this disease through the establishment of an Allergy/Asthma Clinic. The clinic opened on June 26 and offers compassionate care for allergies and allergic asthma patients. Mendy Maccabee, M.D., an adult and pediatric ear, nose and throat doctor and fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy will operate the clinic.
“Allergies are on the rise, and they affect as many as 30 percent of adults and 40 percent of children,” said Dr. Maccabee. “Allergic disease is the sixth most common chronic disease in the United States, so it’s important to develop a treatment plan to alleviate symptoms and build up anti-bodies to fight back.
“Allergy testing is nothing like it used to be,” continued Dr. Maccabee. “It’s almost painless and results are known quickly. And, most people can refer themselves to the clinic without the hassle of a formal insurance referral.”
Patients can expect to receive the highest quality comprehensive health care in a comfortable, convenient facility, delivered by a physician and staff whose primary concern is working with each individual to meet their unique needs.
The Allergy/Asthma Clinic is accepting new patients. To learn more or schedule an appointment, contact Skyline Medical Clinic at 509-637-2810.
