See What People are Saying about Allergy and Asthma Consultants
When you are selecting a healthcare provider, particularly an allergist you want to know more than their credentials. Patients want to know that the doctors and the staff will provide the time required to diagnose and build an allergy action plan customized to the patients.
From your first phone call to your visit with the doctor, our staff is focused on kind, courteous and timely care, which is why we offer same day appointments and five convenient locations. If you are trying to figure out sports allergy symptoms, “why have I suddenly developed asthma?” or “what foods are tested in allergy testing” take the time to research potential providers.
Dr. Rabinowitz take the time to listen to patients and shows great care. His staff is courteous and friendly, while maintaining great professionalism. Every time I go to the office, I know I am in good hands.

Exercise Asthma or
Sports Allergy Symptoms
Exercise-induced anaphylaxis (EIA) is a rare disorder in which asthma occurs after physical activity. The symptoms may include severe itching, hives, flushing, wheezing, and stomach upset, including nausea, cramping, and diarrhea. If physical activity continues, patients may progress to more severe symptoms, including swelling of the face or throat, abnormally low blood pressure, or cardiovascular issues. When the physical activity is stopped patients usually see an immediate improvement of symptoms.
Vigorous physical activity like jogging, tennis, dancing, and bicycling are often associated with exercise-induced asthma, which may sometimes be described as sports allergy symptoms. Patients can confuse the allergies with asthma because many of the exercises that produce these symptoms are performed outside.
Exercise-induced anaphylaxis or exercise induced asthma attacks are not consistently brought on by the same type and intensity of physical activity in a given patient. Other factors such as foods, alcohol, temperature, drugs (eg, aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), humidity, seasonal changes, and hormonal changes can bring on these attacks.
