We are seeing patients with telemedicine and in person based on your needs.
For office visits, it is important that you fill out the Covid screening questionnaire. IF you suspect Covid, do not come to the office, do a telemedicine visit.
Allergy shot and biologic injection patients will be given a specific appointment time. If the patient is a child or needs assistance, only one adult may accompany them and must also wear a mask. All will be checked for fever and turned away if temperature is elevated.
We strongly suggest starting with a telemedicine visit first. Many problems can be handled this way and is more convenient. If the clinician determines you need an exam or testing, you will come to the office and the visit will be quicker and more focused. We are following appropriate Covid hygiene protocols for the safety of all.
Spirometry and lung function tests. We are scheduling these now. You will be required to get a Covid test within 5 days of the procedure or do a rapid Covid test at the office. Payment for the test is a patient responsibility if not covered by insurance.
Food oral immunotherapy/desensitization– is available. Please note that this is NOT covered by insurance in our practice. Please contact us if you are interested in this program.
Your safety is our main concern. If you have questions or suggestions, please ask.
Wishing you and your families well
– Drs. Kreiner, Strauss, Ahmad, Sussman and the Staff of Strauss Allergy and Asthma Division of Allied Physicians Group
