United Allergy Services (UAS) brings effective and convenient allergy testing and immunotherapy to primary care providers; pulmonologists; ENT providers; dermatologists; pediatricians; internal medicine providers; and healthcare systems that treat the vast majority of patients with seasonal and perennial allergies. UAS’ complete service line features in-office UAS Certified Clinical Allergy Technician/Specialist (CAT/CAS) staffing and training; quality assurance and compliance; and supply and inventory management. On a day-to-day basis, a UAS CAT/CAS will remain under the provider’s direct supervision to test, analyze and perform dilutions for immunotherapy treatments. The provider educates patients on the therapy and results. They then use UAS proprietary protocols to provide a customized treatment program with the best individual patient treatment outcomes. UAS provides all testing and therapy supplies and necessary education materials with minimal out-of-pocket or start-up cost to the practice.
