CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Due to the COVID-19 virus we have adjusted our office hours.  We will be adding additional hours each week to meet patient demand.  

Our office hours for the week of July 6 will be:

  • Monday 9:30 – 4 pm

  • Tuesday 12 – 4 pm

  • Thursday 12:30 – 6 pm 

  • Friday – 12 – 4 pm

 
 
We have instituted extra safety precautions including no patients will be sitting in our waiting room, wearing protective equipment, etc. In order to schedule an allergy shot, please call our main office phone number (203) 978-0072 during the hours listed above rather than the allergy shot hotline.  We are scheduling patients with a lot of time between visits so there is limited patient to patient contact.  We are only scheduling patients who have no signs of infection or fever.  We ask that all patients wear a mask in our office.

If you need an office visit, we will give you a choice of an in person visit as well as telehealth visits (see below).  We can manage most infections such as sinusitis and bronchitis this way, and also manage asthma, allergies, etc. via telehealth however if you are severely ill, you need to go to an urgent care center or emergency room.

If you only need a prescription refill, please ask your pharmacy to contact us electronically and we can fill your prescriptions but please allow a 24 hour turnaround time. 

Telehealth Services – Stay Home – Be Safe!  Call (203) 978-0072 to schedule

We are performing telehealth services.  You can perform the visit on your laptop computer if equipped with a camera.  Please remember that telehealth visits are more limited than office visits as certain aspects of the physical examination cannot be performed.  The telehealth visits will temporarily take the place of office visits and can be performed for all the usual problems such as sinusitis, bronchitis, asthma, allergies, etc.  In this way patients can stay safely in their homes while they get the medical care they need.  The insurance companies are covering telehealth visits during the coronavirus crisis and the charges are the same as if you had a regular office visit.  

If you would like to schedule a telehealth visit please call us on our general number at 203-978-0072 during the above times or email stamfordallergynursing@gmail.com.  Please do not email any personal or private information as email is not secure enough for this.

You can follow us on Twitter for weekly updated hours and announcements.
