About

The clinic has been established with the sole purpose of bringing together the skills and expertise required to diagnose and treat allergy in one centre.

Our team consists of respiratory, immunology and ENT surgical experts. We have a skilled group of technicians and researchers which contribute to this care.

All testing, including imaging of the nose and sinuses, is performed on site. Where further non-allergy investigations may be required, the members of the team are specialists at St Vincent’s Hospital and can provide ongoing care via both inpatient and outpatient facilities of the hospital.

Meet the team

The clinic team brings together the skills and services necessary to ensure that allergy is accurately treated, appropriately managed and non-allergic conditions identified to ensure that patients can better manage their condition.
