What To Expect At Your Visit

Our new patient appointments can last at least one hour. We advise against using any oral or nasal anti-histamines for 5 days prior to the first visit, in anticipation for skin prick testing, if this is applicable. Patients with coughing or breathing difficulties may be asked to breath into a machine to possibly help assess breathing function. Please bring a list of all your current medications. PATIENTS UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT OR GUARDIAN. You will be asked to show your insurance card and identification at every visit. We ask that you request referrals from your primary care providers for your visits. If you are unable to keep your appointment, you must notify the office 24 hours in advance to avoid being charged. Please also understand that we accept copays prior to the visit in the form of cash, check or credit card. Please click BOTH New Patient buttons below and print and fill out the forms. Please bring BOTH packets to your visit. We look forward to seeing you!

Skin Prick Testing

On your first visit, you may be skin tested to environmental aeroallergens, depending on your condition. If the reason for your visit is chronic hives, or if you cannot come off anti-histamines for some reason, please continue with your medications and alert the staff of your continued anti-histamine use.
