Preparing for Your Initial Consultation
Expect your first visit to last 45 minutes or longer. You should also expect that by the end of that consultation your allergist will have either made a diagnosis of your condition, made a preliminary diagnosis with consideration of other possible causes to explain your symptoms, or has a thorough understanding of your symptoms and has created and discussed a plan to discover the cause. What can you do to assist the allergist help you?
Before your visit:
- Think about the problem or problems that have been bothering you. It helps a great deal if you can recall how long symptoms have been present, how they began, if they have changed over time, what makes these symptoms increase or decrease, and whether you have had similar symptoms in the past
- Prepare a complete list of medications that you are currently taking as well as those that you have used in the past. Mobile phone photos of your medications are an acceptable substitute
- Write down the names of medications you are unable to take and what happened when you took them. This includes medications to which you are allergic.
- Know the names of physicians that have previously assisted with this medical problem
- Make available relevant medical records, laboratory test results, and X-ray results for review
- Find out if close family members have the same or similar problems.
Billing and Insurance Information During the COVID Pandemic
We need your insurance information before we can meet with you but for your safety, we want to limit your exposure to our staff members and to other patients. We will register you online or by telephone. We can arrange to collect copays and all other payments electronically.
Office Safety Measures During the COVID Pandemic
We offer both virtual telemedicine and live in-office visits. A fast, stable internet connection is vital for a successful virtual visit.
Before a live appointment office staff will review several steps that we take to ensure every patient’s safety.
- A telephone call on the day before your visit will check you for symptoms of respiratory infection: coughing, sore throat, nasal congestion, chest pain, labored breathing, fever, chills, muscle and joint aches, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of smell. We will also ask you if you have been recently exposed to someone with symptoms of coronavirus or has tested positive for COVID-19.
- We ask that you call us from your vehicle when you arrive for your appointment. Nursing staff will contact you when it is safe to proceed to the office door.
- A nurse will meet you at the door. Your temperature will be recorded.
- You will be admitted to the office if your temperature is less than 100 F and if you are wearing an adequate facial covering.
- The nurse will direct you into the examination room. You will not wait in the waiting room.
- Only one parent may accompany a child to a live office visit. Additional children may not be present. A virtual telemedicine visit is an excellent alternative when these conditions cannot be met.
