Important News

                                                                    UPDATED JULY 26, 2021

Due to the increase in covid cases recently we are also encouraging ALLERGY Injection patients to hold off on receiving their allergy injection(s) for the next few weeks if possible.  Otherwise, please increase your time between injections – weekly could go to every other week , every other week could go to monthly and monthly could go to every 6 weeks.  Also if you do choose to come in and receive your allergy injection(s) over the next few weeks, please note that there may be longer than normal wait times due to staffing.    

For Xolair, Nucala and Dupixent, you should still come in as usual for your injection(s) however we request that you call ahead to schedule a time.  Otherwise, you may also have longer than normal wait times. 

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time of increase in covid cases.
