Initial Allergy Consultation
An initial allergy consultation is important to assess a child's medical history, explore symptoms and decide on the best method of testing and course of action going forward. New patients should always book a consultation in the first instance.
Depending on your child's potential allergy, we can recommend and organise various testing to help inform a clinical diagnosis. These tests include: skin prick tests, blood tests, vitamin deficiency tests, core biochemistry screening and itching (Pruritus) assessments.
After an initial consultation and any allergy tests that may need conducting, Dr Costa's clinic offers advice, treatment and medication subscriptions to help form an allergy action plan to minimise the symptoms of your child's allergy.
Dr Costa is frequently invited to share his insight on various allergy industry research and is open to hearing about how he can get involved with projects run by industry professionals or allergy-related brands.
Dr Costa is a media-friendly allergy consultant who is happy to lend his expertise and comment on topical allergy news, new research and allergy surveys to give his unique insight and commentary.
