Freestone Health Clinic Offers Relief for Allergy Sufferers


FAIRFIELD, TEXAS – April 9, 2018 – More than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Allergies can be associated with chronic conditions like sinusitis and asthma, and allergic reactions can be slightly bothersome to life-threatening.

 

“Allergy season is upon us, and although allergies generally cannot be prevented, allergic reactions can be helped or controlled,” said Freestone Health Clinic Administrator Rachel Middlebrook.

 

Avoiding contact with allergens—if known—can help, and many people can reduce their symptoms by staying in air-conditioned environments during peak hay-fever season, avoiding certain foods, and eliminating dust mites and animal dander in their homes.

 

However, if nothing seems to help, medical evaluation may be the best next step. Freestone Health Clinic can assess seasonal concerns, recommend strategies or help to make a referral if needed. Located at 734 West Commerce in Fairfield, convenient Clinic hours meet your busy schedule: 7:00 am – 8:00 pm, Monday-Friday, with same-day appointments often available. Please call (903) 389-2181.

 

“Our entire team, including six providers, is here to care for seasonal concerns like allergies, unpredictable illnesses and injuries, as well as routine primary care,” said Middlebrook. “For patient convenience, we also have laboratory services onsite.”

 

At Freestone Health Clinic, patients are under the care of one provider who gains an understanding of individual health needs. As a patient’s needs change over time, the provider will adjust the care plan for optimal health.
