purpose of your visit is to obtain extensive medical information
concerning your condition. The first visit will include detailed
medical history, physical examination, and laboratory tests as
necessary. If skin testing is indicated, the initial appointment may
last around two hours. Your scheduled arrival time will be somewhat
earlier than the time you actually see the doctor to allow time for
pre-evaluation testing. We recommend that you make arrangements for the
care of young children who are not being evaluated.
We encourage the primary caretaker of the pediatric patient to be present for the initial visit. When all of the appropriate information has been obtained, usually at the time of the first visit, our findings and recommendations will be reviewed. Your entire problem will be discussed and a course of treatment outlined in detail. You are encouraged to ask questions.
