Allergy Asthma & Immunology of the Rockies Important Update

Dear Patients of Allergy Asthma & Immunology of the Rockies, P.C.

UPDATE FOR IMMUNOTHERAPY:

You may continue your injections in the Glenwood Springs and Willits office. Aspen patients can receive their injections in the Willits office given the closure of the Aspen hospital facility.

Our Avon office is open on Fridays since we are not able to see patients in Eagle at this time. We are also offering shot hours on Friday which will be the same as it is during the week, from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and then 1:00 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.

For patients that are 60 years or older; you are encouraged to come in for your allergy injection from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., if you wish.  This will be at our Willits office on Monday and the Glenwood Springs and Avon office on Tuesday. Again, only patients that are only 60 years or older are encouraged to come during this time as a means to protect each other.

For patient safety please be aware that our staff will screen patients for temperature and any active symptoms of infection upon entering the office. Please do not come in for your injection if you are having fevers, shortness of breath, cough, malaise, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

If you typically perform a peak flow before receiving your injection, please perform a peak flow yourself before coming into the office. Inform our staff member that is administering allergy shots your peak flow number for the day. If you don’t have a peak flow meter, please contact our office so we can prescribe one.

For patients receiving biologic medications such as Xolair, Nucala, Fasenra etc., please contact our office for additional instructions.

Should you have an acute illness or worsening asthma or allergy symptoms, please contact our office and we will determine the best route to take care of you. We will be seeing patients in our offices in Glenwood Springs and Avon to assist in your acute health care needs.

We will provide care as long as possible in a safe and effective way. As a reminder we ask that you wear a mask to our office. We request that you do not bring any friends or family members to your appointment or allergy shot unless you are a minor; in that case we ask only one parent accompany you. Thank you for your understanding as wait times may be longer than usual to help comply with social distancing. We are continuing to see patients via telemedicine and office appointments. Please call our office at 970-947-0600 if you wish to make an appointment. 

Thank you for your continued trust and loyalty as we work together to stay safe and healthy.

If you have additional questions about coronavirus or the COVID-19 pandemic, please contact the hotline at 970-945-1377 ext. 2020.
