For the immediate future, offices will remain open with abbreviated hours (see below) for patients to receive allergy shots and biologics (Xolair, Dupixent, Nucala, Fasenra, Cinquair) that they are already receiving in our office. Because injections are your “medicine” we encourage you to continue coming in if possible. Gov.Lamont’s “Stay safe, Stay home” edict starting at 8 PM on 3/23 allows you to come in for your regularly scheduled dosing, as health care providers are permitted to remain open for non-elective procedures. We will be sure that those of you waiting for and after injections have room to socially distance from one another.
In the important spirit of “Stay safe, Stay home” however all office visits will be done telemedicine. We will not do any in-office follow-up visits, food or medication challenges, testing, or pulmonary function testing until the current crisis ends. Telemedicine office visits will be done through Zoom.com. You do not need a Zoom account. Just click “Join Meeting” a minute or so before the appointment time. Our office staff will provide you your doctor’s “Meeting Identification Number.” Please be patient if the doctor does not pick up right away as he or she might be finishing up another office visit first.
Patients already scheduled for any testing or challenging might still need to be seen via telemedicine if there are any problems requiring follow-up.
Please check this website regularly for updates. Stay well.
