We at Allergic Disease and Asthma Center are doing our part to decrease the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Therefore, we are temporarily making changes to our schedules so that we may remain available to our patients while maintaining a healthy and safe clinic environment.
Starting immediately, we will begin offering Televisits with our Physician Assistants for patients who are sick or patients who do not want to come into the office to be seen.
Additionally, our E. Butler rd. location will be closed on Wednesday through month of April.
At this time, we have no plans to make any changes to our shot clinic hours or the schedules at our 3 other locations.
If you have questions, please send us a message via the Patient Portal. We are able to respond to messages sent via the portal much faster than voicemails AND they can be sent directly to your provider. We simply cannot reply fast enough to telephone calls.
Please read the following for information regarding your allergy, asthma, and immunology care while the threat of the coronavirus is present:
If you receive allergy injections:
- please do not come in for allergy injections if you are currently ill, or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive to the coronavirus
- If necessary, we can adjust your dose when you resume injections
- While waiting in the office, whether in line or after your injection, maintain a 6 ft. distance from other patients at all times.
If you have asthma:
- It is imperative that you continue taking your prescribed medications, as instructed, to maintain optimal asthma control.
- Uncontrolled asthma puts you at greater risk for developing complications if you contract Coronavirus.
If you have an immunodeficiency:
- Now is the time to enjoy your couch and watch your favorite TV shows
- Seriously, avoid person to person contact as much as possible. If you must go out, wear a mask, and use a barrier, such as a paper towel, to open doors, etc.
- Continue your infusions
- If you receive IV infusions and would like to switch to subcutaneous infusions (self-infused at home), contact your provider to determine if this is an appropriate alternative
Most importantly: Social distancing, diligent hand hygiene, and proper nutrition are key to staying healthy forEVERYONE, so please take care of you.Healow-Flyer
