Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. If you have PPO insurance or Medicare, treatment can often be performed on the same day as the consultation, though a complex medical history or treatment plan may require a second appointment to provide the best care.
Please allow us 48 hours to check your PPO insurance benefits prior to your first visit.
To make your visit more efficient please provide the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your current medication list
- Insurance card and driver’s license
- Prescription card (for medicare patients)
- New patient forms (highly recommend to download and complete prior to first appointment visit to minimize wait time)
- Your referral slip (if applicable)
- If you have had blood work and/or prior tests (e.g chest x-ray, CT scan of sinuses) done pertaining to your allergies/condition, please bring a copy or have your primary care physician fax the results to our office before your visit.
- If you are transferring care from another allergies please make sure to either bring your medical records or have them faxed over to our office (eg. Skin testing, shot sheets, most recent progress notes, and pertinent labs)
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 and the adult must bring a form of photo identification in lieu of the minor.
For patients with PPO insurances or Medicare: If you are interested in getting skin testing done during your first visit, please stay off of antihistamines (i.e. Benadryl, Claritin, Zyrtec, Allegra, xyzal, atarax) for at least 5 days prior to your visit. For a list of other medications please call our office.
For patients contracted with IPA insurance groups: Please have your primary care physician (family doctor) submit an authorization for a new patient visit to our clinic. Once your insurance group approves of the visit, call our office to schedule an appointment.
