An allergy is the body’s attempt to defend itself against a normally harmless substance, such as dust or pollen. The body’s immune system mistakenly identifies these harmless substances as things that could hurt you, such as a virus or bacteria. To defend itself, the body launches an aggressive attack, triggering allergy symptoms. Affinity’s board-certified allergy specialists can help you fight back.
Hearing is one of our most important senses, because it helps us communicate with the world around us. Hearing problems and balance disorders can negatively impact your quality of life, but Affinity Health System audiologists want to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Affinity’s Speech Pathology program evaluates and treats people with hearing, speech, language, cognitive and swallowing disorders. We offer treatments and adaptations to improve a patient’s ability to communicate at any age.
