New Patient Information & FAQ’s
How to Schedule
What to Expect
Due to precautions necessary from the COVID-19 pandemic, all new patient appointments and routine follow-up appointments are scheduled as video visits. At a new patient appointment, the doctor will be able to do a full evaluation of your symptoms and health history, create a treatment plan with you, order tests, and prescribe medications. If it is determined that allergy testing is recommended or in person evaluation is necessary, an in-office appointment will be offered for soon after your video visit.
In some cases, exceptions can be made if deemed medically necessary. Please call our office with any questions or concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions
I underwent allergy testing, should I bring in my old results?
If you have had a prior allergy work-up, any allergy-related clinical information can be helpful. We encourage to have your previous records sent to our office when possible. Alternatively, you can bring these records with your to your appointment.
Are otolaryngologist or ENT (ear nose and throat) doctors and Allergists the same?
Our allergists / immunologists (Dr. Davidson and Dr. Gupta) are board-certified or board-eligible physicians who are trained in Internal Medicine and/or Pediatrics followed by 2-3 years of specific specialized training in Allergy/Immunology. They specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of allergic diseases and immune deficiencies.
An otolaryngologist is an Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist trained in the surgical management of disorders of the ears, nose, and throat. Many ENT physicians also perform allergy skin testing for disorders that affect the nasal passages, sinuses, and airway. Our ENT-allergist (Dr. Piepergerdes) treats many of these common disorders in adult patients.
For our young patients with allergic symptoms, or for our patients with food allergies, skin allergies, breathing issues, or immune concerns, we recommend you see one of our medical allergists (Dr. Davidson or Dr. Gupta).
I currently receive allergy shots, can I transfer my treatment to your practice?
Our practice currently does not accept transfer of allergen immunotherapy. We will likely start accepting transfers in Spring 2022.
What happens if I need to cancel my appointment?
If you cannot keep your appointment, please cancel 24 hours in advance. Failure to cancel an appointment 24 hours in advance of your scheduled time may generate a fee.
Do you offer telemedicine?
Yes – contact us today to schedule
Can kids under 18 come to appointments alone?
For new patients who are under 18 years old, a parent or legal guardian must be present.
