Occupational Medicine

occupational


Occupational medicine is focused on the treatment of work-related injuries and illnesses. Physicians trained in occupational medicine diagnose and treat work-related injuries much more effectively than most primary care physicians. They’re up-to-date on federal and state regulations for workforce health and safety, including Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), so they can make the best treatment plans and perform regulatory examinations. Occupational medicine physicians often work directly with employers to keep businesses running and employees safe and healthy on the job.

  • Pre-Placement Physical Examinations
  • Department of Transportation (DOT) Physicals, Drug Screens & Breath Alcohol Testing
  • Labs
  • Audio Testing
  • Vision Screening

A general surgeon has specialized knowledge and experience related to the diagnosis, preoperative, operative, and postoperative management, including the management of complications, in nine primary components of surgery, all of which are essential to the education of a broadly based surgeon.

Allergy Services

hayfever-cleburne

Between Seasonal Allergies and Food Allergies more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies. Although allergies are becoming more common, there are also more treatment options available with Doctor Johnson of Family Medicine Associates of Cleburne. J. Stan Johnson, M.D. is Board Certified since 1994 by the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy. Doctor Johnson has advanced training and experience to test which allergens are causing your symptoms. A treatment plan will be developed specifically for you to help you feel better and live better.

If you suffer from an itchy or runny nose, excessive sneezing, hives, rashes, fatigue, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, swelling and/or pain, don’t suffer in silence. Dr. Stan Johnson evaluates and treats patients with seasonal allergies, hives, recurrent infections, and possible immunodeficiencies. He can also conduct allergy immunotherapy, also known as allergy shots to provide relief for patients. Dr. Johnson also offers allergy drops or sublingual immunotherapy (sometimes referred to as SLIT) as a safe and effective alternative to receiving allergy shots.

Please check any of the symptoms below that affect you.

Nose:
Nasal congestion that persists for long periods of time
Post nasal drainage that persists for long periods of time
Sneezing that may be seasonal or persistent
Runny nose that may be seasonal or persistent
Nasal & or sinus pressure that may be seasonal or persistent

Eyes:
Itchy, scratch, irritated, dry, swollen or red

Ears:
Popping, pressure, pain or stuffy

Throat:
Scratchy, itchy, sore, having to clear the throat often

Lungs:
Persistent cough, wheezing, shortness of breath

Results:
If you checked 3 or more boxes, you may have a serious allergy disease.
We suggest you talk with Dr. Stan Johnson about treatments that are available.

Is this a common cold or allergies?

The symptoms can seem quite similar. If your symptoms last longer than 10 days, the cause is usually allergy related. Cold symptoms may also include general aches, pains and fever that are never associated with allergies. If you think you may be suffering from allergies, make an appointment with Dr. Johnson to discuss testing and treatment options.

Hay Fever (Allergic Rhinitis)

Allergic Rhinitis is caused by allergens, which are usually harmless substances but trigger an allergic reaction in some people. People with rhinitis are prone to symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, congestion, and sinus pressure. Rhinitis can contribute to other problems such as asthma, sinus or ear conditions or trouble sleeping.

Seasonal allergic rhinitis, often referred to as hay fever, is typically caused by outdoor allergens such as pollen from trees, grasses and weeds. Perennial allergic rhinitis occurs year-round. It is usually triggered by allergens such as pets or dust mites.

Some people with rhinitis symptoms don’t suffer from allergies. The symptoms may be similar, but the causes are different. Strong odors, pollution, smoke and other irritants may cause symptoms of non-allergic rhinitis. Medications and other chronic health conditions can also contribute to non-allergic rhinitis symptoms.

Allergy Treatment Options

Allergy Shots:

Immunotherapy or allergy shots can be used to treat seasonal, perennial and environmental allergies like molds, pollen, dust, and animal dander. In order to be eligible for allergy shots, patients must be 4 years of age or older. FMA does not treat insect venom allergies or food allergies with shots.

How do Allergy Shots work?

After thorough testing to identify which allergens are causing your symptoms, Dr. Johnson will develop a treatment plan specifically for you. The allergy shot treatments begin with an escalating dose of allergens with each shot. Patients then stay on a maintenance injection schedule of every week for 1-2 years. After a year and half of treatments, the injections can be spaced to every 2 weeks. Decisions to end injection allergy treatment will be based on the patient’s individual needs. Most allergists do recommend treatment durations of 3-5 years.

Are there any side effects associated with Allergy Shots?

Some side effects have been associated with allergy shot treatment. Local reactions can occur near the site of the injection, which can include redness, swelling, and itching. This type of reaction may develop immediately or hours after receiving the shots. Antihistamines and applying ice can provide relief for local reactions.

Other side effects may include anaphylaxis or an acute allergic reaction following injections, but numerous studies show only a minimal chance of experiencing an anaphylactic reaction. Since the vast majority of anaphylactic reactions happen within 20 minutes of the injection being administered, FMA requires all allergy patients receiving injections to remain in the office for 20 minutes afterward as a precaution.

Allergy Drops:

Sublingual immunotherapy or Allergy Drops is a safe, effective, convenient, and affordable treatment method. Clinical studies have proven allergy drops to be an effective alternative to allergy shots. In a 2009 study, more than 2,300 patients who received sublingual immunotherapy experienced significant symptom relief and needed less medication for allergies and asthma. Sublingual immunotherapy is definitely a more convenient treatment method – patients can take allergy drops at home, without the pain of injections or the need to take time off for an office visit. The allergy drops are administered under the tongue by the patient, allowing them to only have to make clinical visits 1-2 times per year after the initial test. Allergy drops are safe for most patients and can be administered to patients as young as 2 years old. Allergy drops are easier for our patients and have less adverse reactions than allergy shots. Patients that currently take shots are eligible to switch to drops. Prior to switching treatments, FMA will need to repeat the patient’s allergy testing.

How do Allergy Drops work?

Much like allergy shots, allergy drops gradually help build the body’s tolerance to an allergen.  After you have been allergy tested, Dr. Johnson will determine which substances trigger your allergies and will prescribe a serum that treats your specific allergies. Patients simply place the prescribed number of drops under their tongue each day. Over time, the allergy results in fewer symptoms and medication needs, and can change the underlying allergic disease. That’s it, no painful shots and no monthly trips to the doctor!

Who is a candidate for Allergy Drops?

Anyone who suffers from allergies is a candidate for sublingual immunotherapy (allergy drops). The drops are safe, effective, and easy to administer making them the perfect solution for:

• Young children

• Adults and children who can’t tolerate needles

• Busy adults

• Severe asthmatics

• Patients with multiple allergies

• Patients with mold allergies

• Patients with chronic sinus conditions

If your symptoms are making you miserable, we can help! To schedule an allergy consultation appointment with Dr. Johnson, please call:
