Atlanta Allergy & Asthma Announces Telehealth Visits and Additional Safety Measures

Updated on Monday, March 23, 2020

COVID-19 Update – March 23rd, 2020

Dear Atlanta Allergy & Asthma patients,

We continue to take precautions to promote social distancing and minimize risk of COVID-19 exposure while still providing care to those that need it. Our physicians take care of many patients with immune deficiency and chronic lung disease who must continue to receive important medical care during this crisis. However, Atlanta Allergy & Asthma is committed to protecting ALL of our patients and staff and have been adding and adapting procedures as the situation evolves.

In addition to the previously reported measures we have taken, we are rolling out telehealth visits with the goal of greatly reducing the number of patients coming to our offices. The first group of providers will begin on Monday, 3/23 and we hope to have everyone up by the end of the week. Established patients with scheduled appointments will be contacted and moved to a telehealth visit. If you feel you need to be seen in the office, your Atlanta Allergy & Asthma provider will be contacted for guidance.

Patients on allergy immunotherapy and those receiving biologics will continue to come to the office for their injections at this time. An adjustment to your injection schedule may be necessary if you are not able to come to the office for an extended period. Call your AAA office for guidance.

It is important that community-based medical practices continue to operate so that vital needs of the public can be met outside of emergency rooms and urgent care centers – which must be reserved for the critically ill. We appreciate your help by following our screening guidelines. If you plan to come to the office, please bring as few guests as possible.

Future updates will be sent as needed. Until then, please stay home as much as possible, wash your hands, adhere to social distancing guidelines, and stay well.

We wish you good health and a speedy resolution to this crisis.
