Your first appointment in the office will be with one of our board certified physicians.
The initial appointment consists of an in depth review of your medical history, a physical exam, and possibly lung function testing, and is generally a 30 minute appointment.
No allergy testing will take place at your first appointment. At your first appointment, the physician will order testing related to your symptoms. This could include allergy skin testing, lab testing, or other testing appropriate to your condition. Testing will take place on separate days from your new patient appointment, so to complete your allergy work-up, you may need to come to the office for multiple appointments.
All new patients are advised to check their insurance coverage.
