NEW PATIENT EVALUATIONS
Please arrive at least 15 minutes early for your appointment. Your first visit can take up to 1 hour if skin testing is not involved, and from 2 to 2 1/2 hours if you are having skin testing done. A new patient visit consists of a review of your complete medical history, a physical exam, allergy skin testing or allergy blood testing, and preliminary laboratory tests. At the conclusion of your testing, your physician discusses your symptoms with you and proposes a course of treatment for you.
