Dr. Schecker’s office provides allergy shots for those who require them.  He is proactive in addressing the challenges patients may face and educating his patients, and the community, about symptoms, conditions and treatment plans.


Did you know?


  • Allergies are the 5th leading chronic illness amongst adults in America and the 3rd leading chronic illness amongst children.
  • Nationally, up to 50% of the population has allergies.
  • Nearly 8% of the population has asthma with a growing number of children being diagnosed with the condition.
  • One-third of the population has non-allergic rhinitis.
  • Allergy shots, also known as allergen immunotherapy or allergy vaccines, are FDA approved and do not contain steroids. They are the only treatment for allergy that treats the underlying cause of allergy rather than just controls the symptoms. 


Allergy shots:


  • Reduce the likelihood of developing new allergies even after they are discontinued.
  • Reduce the likelihood of children with allergic rhinitis (nasal allergy) developing asthma.
  • When successful, produce beneficial effects that can last for many years even after they are discontinued.


An allergist will treat all types of respiratory illness including colds,

upper respiratory infections, etc. - not just asthma. 

Assuming there are no adverse changes with the current Covid-19 situation as of April 21st, we are planning to reopen the office and resume our regular office hours on Monday April 27th. However for now allergy shots will be given by appointment only/ no walk-ins. Please call 843-293-0093 for an appointment for an allergy shot during regular business hours. You should also call this number for an appointment to see Dr. Schecker or for any other assistance or questions.

 

Mark Schecker, M.D.
