Starting an Allergy Drops or Tablets Program During Modified Process for COVID-19

We have modified our process for first dose of sublingual immunotherapy (drops or tablets) due to the current pandemic. To best prepare you to start your program, you will need to schedule your first administration. Patients on allergy drops will also need a follow up appointment in 2 weeks for the first drop from the next bottle.

Before your appointment for your first drop or tablet, you will need to review the following materials and have a phone call with staff (we will call you the day prior to your scheduled appointment). If you do not speak with staff prior to your appointment, your appointment will need to be rescheduled. Please be prepared to review any questions with staff during this phone call.

What to Expect:

  • When you arrive for your appointment, please let the screening staff know that you are here for your Drops/Tablet Appointment.
  • Once roomed by staff, you will give your verbal consent and receive your first drop or tablet.
  • You will have a 30-minute wait after administration in one of our waiting rooms to monitor for reaction. (For minors able to self-transport: a parent/guardian must be present at first administration to give verbal consent).
