Attention: Due to the Covid-19 virus please note the following changes:
For our Patients coming in for an appointment:
1. Our clinic is not an acute care clinic, and we are asking for the sake of our potentially immune-compromised and chronic respiratory patients that you do not enter our facility if:
a. you have been ill with a fever in the past 14 days
b. you have developed recent cough or shortness of breath following travel in the past 30 days
c. you have traveled outside of Minnesota within the past 14 days
d. you have been in close contact with someone who has been ill with cough and/or fever
who has traveled internationally within the past 30 days
e. you have been in contact with someone being investigated or confirmed for a case of
COVID-19 within the last 30 days.
2. Please do not bring along any additional people to your appointment (children, family, friends) as we are hoping to limit risks to our patients and staff by practicing "social distancing" as much as possible.
3. We do not have an in-office lab and are not able to perform testing for COVID-19 or influenza viruses. This needs to be done at your primary clinic.
4. Wearing a mask or other appropriate face covering is required according to the Governor's order. If you unable to wear a mask please let us know prior to your appointment and we will make proper accommodations.
5. While it is not our intent to cause undue alarm or disruption to your care, we have decided to act conservatively and in the best interest of our community and country.

1. As a reminder, for safety reasons, we do not administer allergy shots to ill patients. Stay home if you are sick.
2. Additionally, if you have recently travelled and developed respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness of breath) and/or a fever since travelling, please wait until you are well before visiting our clinic for your injections.
3. Also, we are asking to not bring in any additional persons (including children, family members etc) into our facility.
4. For your safety, we will still be asking you to wait the 30 minutes following your injection, but we ask that you practice social distancing in our waiting area, and if the area becomes too full, we may ask you to wait in your vehicle until your time is up.
