The Aspirin Allergy Treatment Center
The Aspirin Allergy Treatment Center cares for patients with aspirin allergy or sensitivity. William Spiegel, MD, Director of The Aspirin Allergy Treament Center, manages the desensitization of aspirin sensitive asthmatic patients in a safe, controlled medical setting.
Aspirin can trigger wheezing and shortness of breath in aspirin allergic or sensitive patients.Even when aspirin is avoided, poorly controlled asthma, nasal polyps and repeated sinus infections continue.
Treatment for aspirin allergies is called Aspirin Desensitization. The procedure results in improved asthma and greatly reduced symptoms of nasal congestion, sinusitis and polyps. The complete aspirin desensitization process requires two to three consecutive days in the office, typically scheduled at the Blue Bell location. If you think you might be a candidate for aspirin desensitization, call 1-800-86COUGH and schedule a consult to determine if you should proceed with this treatment.
“I have definitely noticed a difference since having the procedure. My sense of smell has returned and, since I have less sinus infections, I make less trips to the doctor. Regarding the actual procedure, Dr. Spiegel and the nurse could not have been more professional and caring. The procedure was actually quite comfortable and relaxing.” - Dawn, age 44
“Since undergoing the procedure my breathing has gotten so much deeper that I feel like I am learning to breathe again. The physicians and staff at the Aspirin Allergy Treatment Center were incredible.” - Rich, age 54
“After decades of being petrified of taking aspirin, I am thrilled to be able to take advantage of the health benefits of taking aspirin daily.” - Dr. Joe, age 53
