October 20, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
October 20, 2013 - Redondo Beach, CA - Riviera Allergy Medical Center (RAMC) is pleased to announce that it is celebrating ten years of helping patients breathe easier and live better with advanced solutions for allergy and asthma relief. Since it seems like there are more people than ever who are suffering from a weak immune system, asthma, skin conditions, or allergies due to food, animals and environmental factors, Ulrike Ziegner, MD, PhD, and her staff are working hard to find and treat the root causes of their patients' problems rather than simply treating the symptoms.

When patients first come to Riviera Allergy Medical Center, state-of-the-art diagnostics are used to determine the underlying cause of their symptoms. Once the triggering factor has been identified, Dr. Ziegner uses a variety of customized treatments to help alleviate suffering, improve health, and increase the patient's quality of life. In the case of patients who are suffering from allergies and hay fever, RAMC may create customized, highly precise immunotherapy to control environmental allergies. Prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications may also be recommended to improve symptoms.Asthma patients may benefit from the newest asthma treatments, which may include allergy immunotherapy and new drug therapies, such as Xolair®.

"People should not have to suffer from allergies, asthma, sinus problems or skin conditions when there are so many effective treatments that are available," commented Dr. Ziegner. "I would like to thank all of our wonderful patients for believing in us and utilizing our treatment methods. RAMC has had a great first ten years, and we're looking forward to ten more."

An allergist is a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of allergy symptoms and manifestations, such as sinusitis, sinus infections, postnasal drip and asthma attacks. Dr. Ziegner is double-board-certified in Allergy/Immunology and Pediatrics and treats patients of all ages. She was originally trained in Germany as an internist and has years of research experience, so patients have access to the latest, most effective treatments as they become available. Dr. Ziegner also treats immunodeficiency disorders, autoimmune disorders, food and drug allergies, insect or venom allergies, bronchitis, chronic cough and anaphylaxis.

As part of its growth strategy RAMC has developed a website that is user- and patient-friendly. Patients can watch educational videos about current allergy and asthma treatment methods or consult the Health Education Library for additional information on any condition, treatment or procedure. The site also enables patients to request an appointment online and download forms for the first office appointment.
