Description

Auckland Allergy & Eczema Clinic

The Auckland Allergy & Eczema Clinic (formerly Auckland Allergy Clinic) is the longest established private allergy clinic in Auckland, New Zealand. The clinic was established in 1994 and is now at home in our purpose designed premises in Cowan Street, Ponsonby. The clinic treats both adults and children with all allergic diseases.

Expert evaluation and allergy testing is performed by doctors who are hospital based specialists in allergy & immunology, supported by knowledgeable specialist nursing and dietitian care. 

Diagnostic and treatment options used include:

  • Intradermal skin tests
  • Skin prick tests
  • Oral food or drug challenge
  • Blood tests
  • Patch tests
  • Specific allergen immunotherapy: injection and sublingual (under the tongue) forms.

Our team use only scientifically proven diagnostic tests and treatment options that are evidence based and internationally recognised. We adhere to best practice guidelines of the Australasian Society of Clinical Allergy & Immunology (ASCIA) and the European Academy of Allergy & Clinical Immunology (EAACI).


What is Immunology?

Immunology is the study of the immune system and is a very important branch of the medical and biological sciences. The immune system protects us from infection through various lines of defence. If the immune system is not functioning as it should, it can result in disease, such as autoimmunity, allergy and cancer. 

Clinical immunologists are clinicians who focus on the diagnosis and management of diseases of the immune system, such as autoimmune diseases, allergies and immunodeficiency.

Referrals

New patients are able to self-refer to our clinic. Please complete our New Patient Questionnaire to find out whether you require a GP referral.

Initial Consultations

Preparing for your appointment

To ensure the accuracy of your test results, we will ask Adults to stop using antihistamines 3 days prior to your consultation, Children 7 days prior, as well as avoiding the use of moisturiser 24hrs prior to your consultation.

On the day

Your initial consultation will provide you with a full allergy evaluation and diagnosis from your specialist. Please make sure you are on time for your appointment to ensure you get the most out of your 45 minute consultation. Some patients may require additional testing such as Allergy Skin Prick Testing to support your diagnosis. These results are available within 20 minutes and your specialist will discuss the results during your appointment. Please allow up to 60 minutes for your appointment with us. Your specialist will provide you with a Patient Consultation Letter that will clearly outline your diagnosis, test results, treatment plan and suggest whether follow up appointments are necessary.

Follow up Appointments

Follow up appointments may be necessary to evaluate your diagnosis, treatment plan and ongoing care. If you have queries following your initial consultation, we suggest first referring to your consultation letter where you can review the advice provided by your specialist. This may answer your queries and save you booking a follow up appointment. Follow up appointments can be made over the phone with our friendly reception team during clinic hours.

Ongoing Care

If you have any medical related queries in regards to your treatment, prescriptions or vaccinations, please feel free to contact our nursing team. Please know that your GP (General Practitioner) may also have access to your consultation information and may be able to provide you with advice, support and the renewal of prescriptions outside of our clinical hours.
