Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, our office has instituted several important changes.
For the safety of our patients and our staff, we will be limiting physical contact and supporting decreased travel.
It is still our goal to continue to support and care for our patients, including those with asthma, immunodeficiency and allergies, throughout the COVID pandemic.
We deeply value our role as your healthcare provider. Thank you for understanding and for working with us as we implement these changes.
- Patients will have the option of utilizing telemedicine for their visits, if they prefer.
- We recommend elderly and those with compromised immune systems strongly consider utilizing telemedicine.
BIOLOGIC MEDICATIONS (Xolair, Nucala, Fasenra, Dupixent):
- We continue to administer biologic medications without interruption.
Coronavirus continues to impact our state and local region, affecting how we deliver care. We continue to strive to best serve our patients while following state and local guidelines. Below is our current allergy shot policy, which is subject to change. Please feel free to call with questions. Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time.
Shot days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
If you are receiving your allergy shot at an outside clinic, then please consult with the clinic administering your shot for their specific policy.
The following safety measures will be in effect for allergy shots:
- Please do not come for an allergy shot if you have symptoms potentially compatible with COVID (fever, cough, aches, cold symptoms)
- Please do not come for an allergy shot if you have had recent direct exposure to known COVID patients
- The number of people in the shot waiting room will be limited to 10 to minimize potential transfer. Therefore, you may be asked to wait for your shot until the waiting room has cleared if it is already full.
- Please do not bring anyone with you to your allergy shot.
- Please stay 6 feet away from other patients.
- We will be administering allergy shots through the shot window, as opposed to physically entering the office.
- Patients also will have the option to receive allergy shots outdoors. In that case, please call our office when you arrive and a nurse will come down to administer your shot. We are doing this on the North side of the building (This is the canal side of the building). In that case, please feel free to pull around and park in the employee parking lot, which is closer to the outdoor shot area. There is parking labeled "shot patients" at the north end of the employee parking lot.
Please call with questions, or if you have ideas of how we can better serve you during this challenging time.
We will keep our policy updated on our website: https://www.allergywesterncolorado.com/blog/covid-policies
We wish you and your loved ones the best as we all get through this challenging time together. Please do not hesitate to reach out if there is something our clinic can do to help keep you healthy during this time.
