"Take care of the patient and everything else will follow." - Thomas Frist MD
Your first appointment - what to expect
Your first appointment will consist of a medical history interview, physical examination and possibly allergy testing and/or pulmonary function testing. At the conclusion of the evaluation, your clinician will review with you your personalized treatment plan and submit any necessary prescriptions to your pharmacy. Please budget 60-90 minutes for your first appointment.
By completing your initial paperwork online using our Patient Portal, you won't have to spend time filling out forms when you should be spending time with the doctor! Online history submission enables us to review your history before your appointment, so we can give you our undivided attention.
Please read these Important Instructions in Preparation for Skin Testing - it will explain our testing methods, what to expect, and medications to hold before your first visit.
