Please bring a list of all medications that you are currently taking and records of previous treatments
including written x-ray reports, lab, skin tests, or blood test results. Many times if you call your family
doctor and ask, s/he will send a letter describing your treatment along with pertinent medical records.
Your primary care physician’s office can provide a Release of Information form which can be sent to
other physicians or hospitals prior to your appointment
If you will be seeing us in regard to nasal allergies, sinus trouble, and/or asthma, we may need to do allergy skin
testing, which means you should not take antihistamines for 5 days prior to the scheduled appointment. Many
over the counter medications that say “allergy” contain antihistamines. If in doubt ask your pharmacist.
Antihistamines that will need to be stopped 5 days prior to your appointment are Allegra (fexodendaine),
Allegra D, Claritin (loratadine), Claritin D, Clarinex, Clarinex D, Zyrtec, Zyrtec D, .Xyzal pills & Astelin,
Astepro, Patanase nasal Sprays. If you are taking blood pressure medicine, call before your appointment to
speak with a nurse. Most other medications, including asthma medications, will not interfere with skin testing
and should be continued. If you have a skin rash or hives, it is not necessary to stop your medication for the first
visit. Please call us at 284.4050 with any questions.
Our office is located 8/10ths of a mile North of McGalliard Road on the West side of Wheeling Avenue
and 2/10ths of a mile South of Riggin Road.
You are scheduled for a 2-hour appointment. Please plan on being here the full time if necessary. If the patient
is a young child, it is helpful to bring along favorite toys or even a second adult to keep the child occupied for
this length of time.
Thank you for your cooperation as we are making every effort to see you in a timely manner. Please visit our
website listed above for directions to our Muncie and New Castle locations.
