COVID-19: Important New Safety Measures

First, we want to thank our patients for being patient with us for the past week while we cleaned and developed a plan to continue to serve our patients in a safe environment.

Our clinic is currently open with normal business hours.

If you are ill, have been around anyone that is sick, or have been exposed to anyone with COVID-19 please stay home.
• Please call ahead to make an APPOINTMENT for your allergy shot.
• We will only let 1-2 allergy injection patients in the office at a time to allow for little exposures and safe distances.
• We will only be allowing about 10-15 allergy shots an hour to allow for distancing and time for staff to properly clean.
• You will still be screened at door for recent exposures, travel, and your temperature will be taken.
• If you are an “at risk” patient (elderly, asthmatic, pregnant, immune compromised, etc.) please call and discuss a plan to continue your allergy injections at this time.
• We ask all patients to come in only every 2-3 week intervals for allergy shots to minimize exposures to yourself and our staff.
• Pending spread of COVID-19 in the community, shot hours may change in the near future to minimize exposures to our staff and patients.

Please be patient with us during this difficult time for our nation, as we are here to provide the best care in the safest environment as possible.

Please do not hesitate to call with any questions or concerns. We are here to serve you.

Continue to follow us daily on Facebook daily for updates and changes that could occur.

When is the right time to see an allergist?

Read further to investigate what a Board Certified allergist like Allergy and Asthma Care of Waco’s Dr. Daftary can help you with. Allergists are able to diagnose patients accurately with respect to having allergic, non-allergic or mixed nasal symptoms and breathing difficulties. Appropriate therapy can therefore be recommended in consideration with patient needs.

Allergists can customize immunotherapy (allergy injection serum), which in studies has shown to be more effective than low dose injections often used by general practice physicians who practice allergy. Allergists recommend avoidance measures, which is an important part in the overall prevention and treatment of allergy.

Allergists improve quality of life and reduce health care costs. Allergists are internists, pediatricians or medical/pediatric physicians who do a subspecialty fellowship in allergy and immunology.

Why Allergy and Asthma Care of Waco?

Our primary goal is to improve your quality of life by determining what triggers your allergy and asthma symptoms, providing extensive education on how to modify your environment to better control exposure to allergens, and providing you with other treatment options such as medications and immunotherapy (allergy injections).
