Dear Patients,

At Allergy and Asthma Consultants, we are constantly looking for ways to better serve the community and keep you healthy. We are reaching out at this time to provide you with information about what we are doing to help limit infections and slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). At this time, we are unaware of any cases reported in our community.

1)      Rooms are being cleaned thoroughly after all patient encounters and we are following protocols put in place by the CDC. We are drastically limiting patient encounters that involve active respiratory symptoms and only using one room for these visits.

2)      We have spread out the chairs in our waiting room to maximize your ability for “social distancing.”  Toys and magazines have been temporarily removed, sign in sheets removed.

3)      We are screening patients for symptoms of COVID-19 and ask that patients do not come in if they are exhibiting symptoms of acute respiratory illness, including fever, cough or shortness of breath.

4)      We ask that only the patient enter the building while accompanying family members wait in their vehicles. For children (under the age of 18), only one adult may accompany the child. If you feel you require special assistance, please let the office know of your situation ahead of time.

5)      We ask that routine visits be postponed as per current CDC guidelines, especially if you are in a high risk group. We are looking into the possibility of better serving you through telemedicine.

6)      In order to decrease the risk of spreading the virus, we may be checking temperatures before entering the building. Patients or accompanying family members with a fever will not enter the building and will be asked to reschedule.

7)      We ask that you check the website or Facebook prior to coming in for allergen immunotherapy. As staff will be impacted by ongoing school, childcare and business closures, it may be necessary to alter the shot room hours. We appreciate your understanding.

 This is a constantly changing process and is evolving rapidly, so please check our website regularly for new details and information.  We know that many of you have asthma or are immunocompromised and we are trying to find the best way to continue to serve you while protecting you from community spread- we believe that prevention is key and will be following CDC guidelines as closely as we can.
