Health Update

Your Health and Safety Are Our Top Priority!

Mask Update
In a continued effort to keep our staff and patients safe, we will still require masks to be worn in our clinic. Thank you for helping keep our community safe!

We are OPEN and accepting new and established patients for in-office and virtual consultations. Treating your allergic rhinitis, sinus issues, skin allergies, food allergies, asthma, and administering your allergy shots are our top priority.

Our staff has conducted a thorough deep clean of our entire office and exam rooms. Additionally, we are following our usual infection control measures along with extra sanitizing of all surfaces between every patient that enters our clinic. 

For the safety of our patients, providers, and staff, we ask if you are ill or have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus, please alert us and we will reschedule your appointment. 

We need your assistance, patience, and cooperation as we navigate through these unprecedented times. 

We are asking the following of all our patients: 

  • Existing patients, please notify our staff prior to arrival when making an appointment of any changes in your information (address, phone number, email, insurance information).
  • In accordance with the Texas Medical Board guidelines, physicians and their representatives, along with any parties entering our facilities are required to wear a mask or facial covering.
  • Our waiting room will not exceed more than 25% of capacity at any point leaving plenty of room for social distancing.

Thank you for your patience and assistance in helping limit the impact of this virus within our clinical care setting and community. 

COVID-19 Vaccination Announcement

At this time, we do not have the COVID-19 vaccine and are uncertain if we will be dispensing it in our office. It is not readily available to specialty practices as it has strict storage guidelines. Should this change, we will let all our patients know. Please stay tuned to our social media platforms and sign up for our monthly newsletter for any updates.

We request that everyone contact your local state health department and look out for news regarding all major hospitals and urgent care pharmacies’ vaccination schedules.

Please know that individuals with food and environmental allergies and respiratory symptoms, including asthma, can safely receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

We hope this information provided helps guide you to receive your COVID-19 vaccine. Should you have any further questions or concerns, please schedule a virtual telemedicine appointment to speak with a provider.
