Click here for a COVID UPDATE: Vaccinate Children and Changes in Mask Recommendations

Get your child vaccinated as soon as possible


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.

We are seeing patients in office but if you prefer telemedicine, this option is available as well. We are following appropriate Covid hygiene protocols for the safety of all. 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 3 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.
