Lots of winter rain, watch for spring trees to bloom

At Alvernon Allergy & Asthma PC, we now have 3 trained specialty allergist/immunologists, all accepting new patients at this time. At all new visits and any recheck visits patients always see an MD with a two-year fellowship completed in Allergy and Immunology.

Physicians in our practice have consistently been listed as national top doctors as reported annually in Tucson Lifestyle Magazine. At times Alvernon Allergy has taken 3 of the 5 slots for local top Allergists/ Iimmunologists.

The American Board of Medical Specialties list only 5 local allergists as having achieved the “maintenance of certification”.  This indicates their board certification is up-to-date and they have passed all continuing education and testing requirements. 2 of these 5 doctors practice within Alvernon Allergy.

Last, but certainly not least, Medicare rates the cost effectiveness of every doctor that sees Medicare patients.  One  may look this up for any MD and  any specialist by googling “Medicare Unmasked, Behind the Numbers”, putting in the city/state/doctor’s specialty. These numbers can give you a relative idea of what you will be charged at various practices; our doctors are the most cost-effective of any private practice of Allergy and Immunology in the city of Tucson, and in the very top percentage for the state of Arizona. This of course with the patient responsible for increasing co-pays and coinsurance, is important for commercially insured patients also, as our cost effectiveness is across the line with all products. Certain local Allergy practices are listed at charging 200% – 300% more than our physicians.

We are ready to see you!

 

 

 

 

Summer/Fall 2013 update

I am happy to announce that we now have 3 of our doctors listed in the prestigious Best Doctor’s national listing, as detailed in the July 2013 edition of Tucson Lifestyle Magazine.  This is a first for a Tucson allergy/immunology practice, and we are quite honored.  All of our doctors are taking new patients, and we  see patients with allergies, asthma, hives, eczema, food allergies, adverse drug reactions and immune disorders.

FALL 2012

We have been having a brisk monsoon season, the first I can remember in some time. We therefore expect a relatively heavy pollen season for the fall months.  Our practice has been honored once again in the national listings for exceptional physicians.  Three of our senior doctors are listed in the Consumers Research Council of America’s “Guide to America’s Top Physicians” for 2012  (www.consumersresearchcncl.org). One of our doctors is listed in the national “Best Physicians” listings, and also in the prestigious Castle Connally “America’s Top Doctors”, the only allergist in Tucson to be so listed. We are gratified to be so honored, and thank our patients and referring physicians.
