Welcome

Dr. Ohayon and his team provide a consulting medical service in the field of Allergy and Clinical Immunology to the Southwestern Ontario community. As a consulting service, we work with your family doctor to help you and require their referral. Our office consults on adult and pediatric patients of all ages for various conditions.

We at HamiltonAllergy.ca, our dedicated staff work tirelessly to provide the highest quality services in diagnosing and treating a wide range of allergic conditions. Our office focuses on respiratory allergies involving the nose and chest, allergic skin conditions such as dermatitis and urticaria, multiple presentations of immediate and delayed food allergies, allergic reactions to stings and bites, and adverse drug reactions. Allergic conditions are diagnosed based on your history, examination, allergy testing and, when needed, an allergen challenge to ultimately improve your quality of life. We appreciate your physician referring you to our centre and our involvement in your care.

We recognize that wait times occur.  Our office will work to expedite your consultation.  If it is urgent, please request your family doctors to inform us and we will do the best to see you ASAP.
