Allergy Asthma and Immunology Appointment Information
Allergy Asthma and Immunology Appointment Information

If your child is a new patient or a patient returning to our office for allergy skin testing, please discontinue all antihistamine medications at least 10 days prior to the visit.

If your child also has asthma, do not discontinue any of their asthma medications; asthma medications do not interfere with skin testing.

Please notify your primary physician's office with your appointment date and time so that they can be sure to provide faxed lab work, X-ray reports or specific reasons that your doctor wanted your child to see an allergist or asthma doctor. (If your doctor prefers sending the records with you, please pick them up and bring them to the appointment.)

If your child has been seen by another specialist for a similar problem, a copy of those records would be helpful as well.
