What To Expect On Your First Visit

Your first visit to Windom Allergy establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. The doctor will spend time talking with you about your problem and performing an examination. Following this you may be asked to return for skin testing, basic breathing tests, blood tests, or x-rays. At this point, the doctor will write a letter to your primary doctor explaining his impression and recommendations. The need for follow up visits with him will depend on the severity of your condition. As a matter of office policy, we do ask for payment at the time of service.

Follow Up Visits

At a follow-up appointment you may be scheduled for specific testing or a routine check up with the doctor. If you are having skin testing the following restrictions apply:

Skin Testing

Do not take classical antihistamines for 2 days before your appointment (Benadryl, Tylenol PM, Nyquil, or other OTC cold/allergy/nighttime medications). You must withhold for 5 days – Claritin (Loratadine, Alavert), Zyrtec, Allegra (fexofenadine), Xyzal, or Clarinex.

Spirometry (breathing test)

Do not take short-acting bronchodilators for 6 hours (albuterol, Proventil, Ventolin, Maxair, Proair, or Xopenex). The long-acting inhalers have to be avoided for 12 hours – Foradil, Serevent, Advair, Symbicort, and Dulera.

Rhinoscopy

Come as you are for this simple fiberoptic examination of your nose, sinuses and throat.
