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!
