My specialist was Dr Kenani at Granville and W16th (Vancouver). Getting the referral took a while, but he was super professional and helpful.

I was a bit scared, but the thing didn’t hurt at all! Concentrate drops, pick (even less noticeable than, say, the glucose test ones) and wait.
It was itchy, though. And still is a little bit. But overall the experience was way better than I thought. Turns out I’m allergic to dust mites and, to a lesser extent, cats and grass pollen. Those are the red spots you can see in the picture. Glad Guinea pig came back negative, or my daughter would’ve killed me.
