WELCOME

 

Welcome and thank you for choosing us as your allergists!!!

 

Dr. Bernard C. Fruge, Jr., Dr. Bina Joseph, M.D. and Dr. Andrew Collins are fellowship trained and board certified Asthma, Allergy and Immunology specialists, who treat recurring ear and sinus infections; asthma, persistent cough and congestion; skin, food, insect and drug allergy; ear, nose, throat and sinus allergies; and immune disorders.

 

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment.  If you made an appointment for allergy skin testing, you must be off all antihistamines five days prior to your testing appointment.  Some tranquilizers can interfere with testing.  Speak with your primary care doctor to see if they can be safely stopped.  Please keep your appointment in the event you are unable to stop your antihistamines.  Continue all other prescribed medications, especially those for asthma, diabetes or heart conditions.  Speak to your primary care doctor if you are unsure of which medications to discontinue.  Bring any recent laboratory tests, x-rays or allergy testing results with you to your appointment.  This will alleviate the need to repeat any tests unnecessarily.

 

Our staff reserved 2 (two) hours for your initial consultation.  As a courtesy, if you are unable to keep this appointment, please call within 24 hours to cancel.

 

We require that all patients have their own primary care physician, internist or pediatrician in the event that you or your child requires emergency room care or hospitalization.

 

**Any new patient that is not of legal age (less than 18) must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

 

Physicians and the staff of AAICSWLA will not be responsible for the risks involved to the patient for non-compliance on follow up appointments, tests or procedures ordered on the patient at previous office visits.

 

Thank you for your confidence in our practice!
