Holistic Allergy Specialist in NYC
Board-Certified Allergist – Dr. Dean Mitchell
You Can Be Allergy Free with Our All-Natural No-Shots Allergy Treatment
Over 50 million American suffers from allergies. Allergies are the sixth leading cause of chronic disease. Symptoms can be mild or severe, and range from sneezing, rashes, and hives to asthma and life-threatening anaphylaxis. The most common allergies are to pet dander, mold, pollen, insect bites, medications and foods, such as peanuts and wheat.
About Allergies & Allergy Symptoms
An allergic reaction is what happens when your body’s immune system overreacts to a benign substance, such as tree pollen or pet dander. In other words, your body responds by going into attack mode against an agent that it erroneously perceives as threatening. When the body sounds this alarm, the immune system goes into self-protection mode – launching a vigorous and violent counterattack against potentially harmful intruders such as pollen grains, mold spores, dust mites, animal dander, foods or certain drugs.
Over time and by repeated exposure the body’s immune system can become “sensitized” so that the body will no longer tolerate a certain agent, even though it was fine when it was exposed to that agent before. This can be a frustrating and frightening concept.
When the body is introduced to the body’s immune system, the reaction comes out of nowhere.
Recent Reports Show That 54% of People Between 5 and 59 Years of Age Had a Positive Test to at Least 1 Allergen
“I treat my allergy patients in a way that is different – and more successful – than the standard allergy care. I use a new, breakthrough therapy, backed by solid science, which has been shown conclusively to reverse allergies and asthma. This treatment, sublingual allergy immunotherapy or allergy drops, does not merely target the symptoms of the allergy but it acts upon the mechanism that gives rise to the allergy in the first place. You can be allergy-free!”
-Dr. Dean Mitchell M.D.
Telehealth New Patient Consultations
We know it can be difficult to always find time to get to the doctor’s office which is why we are now offering telehealth virtual new patient consultations with Dr. Mitchell. During the consultation, you will speak directly with Dr. Mitchell about your health issues just like you would at his office.
It is important for all those who are interested in a telehealth appointment with me to know that medico-legally I cannot diagnose or treat anyone unless we have a face-to-face, in-person office visit. I cannot prescribe any medications or supplements from a telehealth visit (the exception to this is if you live in New York State).
These telehealth visits are intended for educational and informational purposes only. My goal is to help provide you with these resources to work with your local healthcare provider to get the best care possible.
Mild allergy symptoms may include:
- Itchy, watery eyes
Moderate allergy symptoms may include:
- Difficulty breathing
Severe allergic reactions may include:
- Swelling of the throat making breathing extremely difficult (Anaphylaxis)
- Acute and chronic sinusitis
- Abdominal pain and/or cramps
- Dizziness or confusion
Symptoms that sometimes get overlooked are headaches, sinus pressure and, more recently, stomach pains. Allergy patients are 14 times more likely to have migraines.
No More Shots! Finally Painless Allergy Relief
Most people rely on medications to relieve their allergy symptoms rather than treating the source. Those who sign up for traditional injection immunotherapy to try to build up a tolerance to allergens have to endure weekly shots at the doctor’s office. No wonder compliance is so low. One study found that only 1 percent of patients who signed up for allergy shots actually lasted more than three treatments.

We use allergy drops, (sublingual immunotherapy), a safer and more convenient form of immunotherapy. It can be used to treat most of the common allergies including hay fever, year-round “indoor” allergies from dust or pet dander, skin allergies to soaps or latex, and insect allergies.
We test you in our NYC or LI office with one simple blood test to determine the cause of your allergy and formulate the right prescription for your drops. We have seen successful results for our patients within weeks. Learn more about sublingual allergy drops.
What Makes This Treatment Different Than Other Allergy Treatments
The difference between traditional allergy treatment and allergy immunotherapy is that traditional treatment can only go so far in helping allergy sufferers because at best they are able to offer only transitory relief from the symptoms of allergy. Now we have the tools to not only quiet the symptoms but also to reverse the underlying condition. It means that we can now stop the coughing, sneezing, wheezing, and watery eyes by reversing the allergic reaction itself. In other words, lasting, lifetime relief is now available to you. Reverse allergies with only a few drops a day.
What Doctors Say About Dr. Mitchell
“I was so impressed with Dr. Mitchell’s expertise that I referred my daughter to his care and saw him as a patient myself. Both of us improved dramatically with sublingual immunotherapy.
I frequently referred patients to allergist Dr. Dean Mitchell during the eleven years I practiced internal medicine in Manhattan from 1997-2008. During that time, I was greatly impressed by Dr. Mitchell’s successful use of sublingual immunotherapy in my patients. I think that Dr. Mitchell was, at the time, one of very few allergists in this country who used this treatment.
Many improved dramatically with this treatment, reducing their need for medications, and none reported any side effects from it. My patients were very receptive to this treatment and were far more compliant with it than patients usually are with allergy shots.
Dr. Mitchell is a superb physician, who provided patients in my practice with thoughtful, expert consultation. I highly recommend Dr. Mitchell as an excellent allergist, and as an expert in the use of allergy drops.
