Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. In an effort to help our patients receive care without requiring an office visit, we are  offering TeleVisits  Most insurance companies were  waiving co-pays (and in some cases, deductibles) for virtual visits during the coronavirus pandemic. While we cannot guarantee this waiver, you can check with your insurance company for their current policy. 

Yes. As always, provided you do not have a fever, or had a fever in the past 14 days, it is safe to get your allergy shot. Adherence to all therapies and medications is recommended, especially during this time.

Although the risk of reaction after receiving an allergy immunotherapy injection is quite small, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology guidelines recommend that patients wait in the office for 30 minutes after receiving their allergy immunotherapy injection to ensure immediate medical attention is available if needed. To help facilitate social distancing, after check-in, patients may be permitted to wait outside the clinic prior to their injection .Please wait in your car after the injection for 30 minutes 

Current Screening Guidelines for In-Office Visits

We ask you to call in advance or reschedule appointments if you answer ‘yes’ to any of the following:

  • Have you, or anyone in your household, had a fever in the past 14 days (fever is a temperature of 100 or above)?
  • Have you had a cough and/or shortness of breath in the past 14 days?
  • Have you experienced at least two of the following symptoms in the past 14 days: fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell?
  • Have you had contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19?
  • Have you had contact with a person who has been exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19?
  • For more information on the symptoms of COVID-19 see CDC website.

We Ask That All Patients Adhere to the Following Procedures:

  • If you are sick, call the office in advance. Patients with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 will not be permitted in our offices. You should speak with a nurse who will assess your symptoms and consult with your provider to determine the best way to deliver care.
  • All patients and guests will be screened at the front door of the clinic (using CDC guidelines) for fever, symptoms, travel history, and exposure risk.
  • Per CDC recommendations, please wear your face covering while in the office. This applies to patients and all visitors. (Instructions for wearing/making face coverings)
  • Patients who come to the office should bring only essential guests. Patients under the age of 18 should be accompanied by one adult/family member to reduce the number of people in the office.
  • Patients over the age of 65 and patients with immunodeficiency diseases should contact your office to assess the need for an office visit. A telehealth visit may be a better alternative at this time based on the insurance .
  • Bring your rescue inhaler: Asthmatics coming for an office visit should bring their albuterol rescue inhaler with them. For safety reasons, we are not able to offer nebulizer treatments during this time.
  • Adjust your shot schedule: If you are an allergy immunotherapy patient and are unable to get to your office for an extended period, contact our office as we may be able to adjust your shot schedule. Compliance with all medications and therapies is essential, especially now.
