The specialists at the AllergyCorp Group Clinics are nationally-renowned, and are committed to finding the right balance of treatments for your specific allergy, rhinology, respiratory, or allergic skin disorders.
There will be a great deal to accomplish in your first visit. Our doctors may prescribe a series of outpatient treatments, or they may recommend an intense and immediate treatment necessary to stabilize your condition and create an effective, long-term outpatient plan.
It is important to emphasize the following points and recommendations before your first visit:
- This will be a diagnostic and treatment experience unlike any you’ve had before. The questions will be more specific about your allergy, rhinology, respiratory, or allergy skin condition and the initial examination will take longer. The first visit may take one to three hours, and it may require more than one visit to gather all the necessary information to create a full medical profile.
- Our care begins with the collection of a thorough medical history. We provide our forms online to give patients plenty of time to prepare. Involve your family in this process, if needed.
- An assessment of the quality of your life will be conducted to help determine if and at what level these disorders contribute of changes in your normal life activities. Observe and document any changes in your own normal daily activities.
- Some tests already performed by other referring physicians may need to be repeated. Please be patient through the evaluation process. It takes time; but it’s worth it!
- You may be asked to keep a daily information of conditions symptoms, recording the severity of your condition; the amount of and types of medications used; the degree of relief obtained by your medications; and provocative factors, such as home or work environment, life style component, and the time of day.
Based on the total evaluation, the clinic physician will recommend an individualized treatment regimen that includes:
- The medication component: your clinic physician will suggest a program of specific therapeutic agents. Patient response is closely monitored to evaluate efficacy and minimize side effects
- Different medical procedures like the allergy testing or nasal endoscopy as part of an active component of a comprehensive medical management program.
- A lifestyle-modification component: the patient is instructed in the areas of home and work environment, safety, diet, recreation, and other habits linked to their condition.
