Allergy Patient Information Taunton MA
Preparing For Your First Appointment
At your first appointment, the doctor will take a complete medical history and perform a physical exam. The doctor will then talk to you about needed tests and arrange for those tests. Once the test results are available, the doctor will see you again and recommend a treatment plan. Most times, allergy testing can be done on the same day as your first appointment and the results are discussed with you before you leave the office.
Due to the time that the doctor will spend with you and the time to needed to perform tests, new patient appointments may take up to 2-3 hours.
Please bring a list of all of your current medications to the visit.
Preparing for allergy testing
Please wear a short sleeved shirt to your appointment as most allergy testing can be done on the arms.
Please stop taking any antihistamines (such as Benadryl, Claritin, Allegra or Zyrtec) at least three days prior to your appointment. Antihistamines can affect the accuracy of the test. If you are unsure about a certain medication, please call the office before your appointment.
Continue to take your asthma medication and all other medications.
