What do I need to bring to my first office visit?
- New patient packet with questionnaires filled out
- A comprehensive list of medications you are taking, including: Prescriptions, OTC meds, vitamins and herbal supplements
- List of known drug allergies
- Current insurance card and valid photo ID (such as a driver’s license)
- If skin tests are planned for the initial visit, wear or bring a short-sleeved shirt. (Skin tests are done on the back and upper arms so sleeves need to roll up easily. Children may wish to bring a favorite toy or video game.)
What medications should I discontinue taking prior to skin allergy testing?
- Stop OTC and prescription antihistamines three days prior to your appointment. (Many cold, sinus and allergy combinations contain antihistamines and should be stopped for three days prior to your appointment.)
How long will the first office visit be? What test(s) will be performed?
- Expect approximately three hours if skin allergy testing will be done.
- Additional tests that may need to be administrated are breathing test for cough, shortness of breath or asthma.
- Lab work or x-rays may also be ordered.
We kindly request that you do not wear colognes, perfumes or scented aftershaves, as these may exacerbate allergic and asthma symptoms in our patients. If you have any questions regarding your treatment, please call our office at (423) 875–6162.
What is your cancellation policy?
If you cannot keep your scheduled appointment, please notify our office 24 hours in advance at (423) 875–6162 so we can use this time for another patient.
