Policies & Information
Alvernon Allergy & Asthma P.C. congratulates our physicians voted among Best Doctors in America. The doctors in our practice include; Dr. George Makol, Dr. Christine Kucera, and Dr. Kudagal Murthy (left to right).
Previously the Department of Allergy, Thomas-Davis Medical Centers, we have provided comprehensive allergy and immunology services to the community since 1982. Besides environmental and food allergies we offer evaluation and treatment of asthma, urticaria (hives), eczema, immune disorders and sinus diseases.
We welcome patients of all ages and accept most insurances.
As of May 1, 2020 Arizona has recorded 7648 confirmed cases of Covid–19. Of course over half of these persons have recovered and would likely not be shedding virus. However even if you doubled the amount of cases, assuming that everyone has not counted, and divide that by the 7.5 million people in this state you come up with 0.2% incidence of confirmed disease. This means that 2 people in a thousand have this illness and in one of the two the illness is not active.
Continue to take sensible precautions as we do in our office.
We are open and patients can come in safely to maintain their asthma management or to receive allergy injections. We are doing this by appointment and have a minimal number of persons in the office at the same time
We have made some important changes in office policy so that we can remain open and as a medical resource to the community. Our allergy injections are now by appointment only, so we are controlling patient flow; we often have no more than 2-3 persons in our entire large waiting rooms. We are maintaining social distancing, wearing masks when in proximity of patients, disinfecting surfaces all day. Hence you are probably safer coming in to our offices for an appointment than you are going to the grocery market or your pharmacy.
Effective 3/31/2020, ALL SHOTS will be given by appointment ONLY.
Please call our office at 520-322-8361 (Main) or 520-544-7580 (Northwest) to schedule an appointment.
Only shot patients will be allowed in for shots.
If a minor is receiving the shots, then only one (1) legal guardian can accompany them.

Our two offices are currently open and we are giving allergy injections according to our customary schedules. We are directing patients with dry cough and fever to go to the medical centers like Banner Hospital emergency or urgent care, where testing is available by appointment. We are using social distancing as much as possible at our office, and when appropriate our staff are wearing masks and we are thoroughly disinfecting all surfaces frequently. As of March 27 there are 500 or so cases documented of covid – 19 out of 7 1/2 million Arizona residents, and although this number may eventually rise there is no reason for panic, nor hoarding of household supplies. We are Americans; we got through the Vietnam War, the Cold War, the 2008 housing/banking crisis, and now we will get through this.
