Appointment Information

We are currently accepting new patients. The office is conveniently located in Rockville Centre, two blocks north of Sunrise Highway and the Rockville Centre LIRR station.

Office appointments are available on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings.

Appointment Time

You should allow at least 2 hours for your initial appointment especially if allergy testing is performed.

Forms Needed

Having your current insurance information verified and referral from your primary care physician (if needed), patient information sheets filled out and pertinent medical records available prior to your appointment time will expedite the check-in process. We have provided all information sheets needed at your first appointment on this website. You should download them from this site, print them out, fill them in and bring them with you for your appointment.

Allergy Testing

Routine allergy testing can be performed within the allocated appointment time provided you are not currently taking antihistamines. Specialized allergy testing including antibiotics, drugs, stinging insects or other biologicals can not be performed at the initial visit unless prior arrangements have been made with our testing nurse (not front office staff). Serum or blood testing for allergens may be drawn or ordered at your initial visit even if you are on antihistamines. Results of blood tests may take up to 2 weeks depending on the laboratory used for your insurance plan.

Please refer to the following list of medications to stop prior to your visit so that testing may be performed. You may need to consult with your primary care or other prescribing physician about the appropriateness of stopping any medications.

The list of medications can be found here.

Availability

We are committed to seeing patients as quickly as possible. We are often able to give you the same day appointment for emergencies.
