Important Announcement for Alabama Asthma & Allergy, PC as of Sunday, April 19, 2020

 

1) We will resume providing prescheduled allergy shots outdoors on Monday April 27, 2020 and provide shots two days a week, Mondays and Thursdays 8:00AM - 4:30PM. All patients coming to the clinic must wear a mask or form of face covering and have a charged cell phone available. In addition, shot patients must have their Epi-Pen with them and wait in their car at least 30 minutes after their shot and have the nurse recheck them afterwards. Please fill out a COVID-19 screening questionnaire that is provided to you outdoors before we can proceed with your treatment. Please come with a minimal number of family members. Again, all shots must be scheduled ahead of time for now.

 

2) The Tuesday Enterprise satellite clinic will likely be closed until the end of May 2020. All Enterprise shot patients are welcome to come to Dothan or set up with us to get allergy shots with your local physician for now.

 

3) We hope that new patients and allergy testing patients will begin to be seen in June if we have seen a 14 day decrease in new COVID-19 cases in Alabama prior to this.

 

4) Follow-up appointments, however, will continue for now as telemedicine. Please call 334-794-2718 to schedule your appointment.

 

Thanks for your consideration and we wish all our patients to stay safe.
Sincerely,
Alabama Asthma & Allergy, PC
