Patient Story Carolyn Huff
Some of my earliest childhood memories are trouble breathing from asthma, numerous penicillin shots and many trips to the hospital. Things improved as I grew up; but allergies often triggered the asthma conditions and as I moved into my 60s these problems came more frequently. Finally near retirement age from teaching I had the good fortune to visit Carolina Ear Nose and Throat and meet Dr. David Melon.
Dr. Melon treated my problems very kindly and professionally and suggested that I might benefit from being tested for allergies and depending on the results pursuing immunology treatment. The tests showed that indeed I am allergic to most plants, grasses, trees, mold and, of course, the animals I love best, cats and dogs.
So I began a series of three allergy shots a week, eventually reduced to two. This treatment has done so much to make my life more normal and pleasant. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Melon and his associates and the wonderful staff who administer the allergy shots. I would gladly recommend Carolina Ear Nose and Throat to anyone who needs similar medical help.
