We are having a warm winter as far, with some rain. It is likely this will lead to an active spring pollen season. Fortunately now our practice has four MD specialists with plenty of available new openings due to the recent addition of our latest physician. That means on every visit you will be seeing an MD specialist who has completed 3 years of either internal medicine or pediatric training, and a 2 year fellowship in adult/pediatric allergy and immunology. Our waiting time for a new patient has been dramatically reduced, and sometimes we can get patients in the same week that they call. Remember, if you think you may elect to have allergy skin testing, stop all antihistamine medications at least 5 days prior to your scheduled visit.
