HaysMed, part of The University of Kansas Health System, has recently opened a new allergy and immunology clinic.

The clinic is located in the existing Ear, Nose and Throat clinic at the hospital. They specialize in treating patients with environmental allergies such as pollen weeds, grass and pet. Food allergies will not be part of the treatment services offered.

Rhonda Schenk-Pitts, APRN-C will be overseeing the clinic and allergy testing services.

“We are excited to be able to offer allergy services.” said Jay Moore, executive director of physician clinics.

“Hays has been without an allergy clinic for several years and the addition of allergy testing and treatment in our ENT clinic is something that is high demand."

The clinic will diagnose and treat a broad range of common allergic conditions and symptoms such asthma, chronic sinusitis, ear disease/infections, eczema, hay fever, headaches, nasal polyps and rhinitis.

Allergy testing and treatment for environmental allergies such as pollen weeds, grass and pet will be available. Food allergies will not be part of the treatment services offered. Allergy shots and counseling on controlling your environment will also be offered.
