Covid-19 Update + Telemedicine

Administrator · 03/30/2020 ·

Chattanooga Allergy Clinic is committed to continuing to provide the highest standard of care in the area despite the growing numbers of COVID19. We continue to fine tune our response to make sure all of our patients can have their needs met and STAY OUT OF THE ER for allergy and asthma related disease.

Keeping that in mind, all of our offices remain open for visits (both new patients and established). We continue to give allergy shots during business hours (extended hours are temporarily paused). We are offering call ahead check in along with waiting in the car for an available room or shot nurse. Patients can also wait in the car after shots if desired.
We are practicing social and physical distancing and increased cleaning and disinfecting our offices and decreasing wait times in our waiting room.

We are excited to offer Telemedicine through Doxy.me. This service is very easy! At the time of your appointment, you will receive a text with a link to start the visit! We are contacting our existing patients to transition appointments to Telemedicine.
We do ask that patients try to minimize visitors to no more than one guest(if the patient is a minor) with the patient in the office.

Thank you again for your patience and for being our patience!

Stay safe out there, follow social distancing guidelines, wash hand frequently and if you have to cough, cough in your elbow!

Your friendly, neighborhood CAC!

CAC COVID 19 Update

Administrator · 03/18/2020 ·

CAC COVID 19 update:

We are continuing to monitor communications from the CDC and other sources to maintain a safe environment for our patient and staff.

For this reason, we have decided to temporarily suspend our extended shot hours and Saturday shot hours. All offices will be open for shots 8:30 to 4:45(3:45 on Fridays). Each office will maintain the usual days of operation. We will no longer have late night on Tuesdays or Saturday in Hixson and Lee Highway. We will restart these hours as soon as we can!

We ask for patience as we continue to screen everyone who enters the office for fever and risk factors. We ask everyone to practice safe distancing in our office. Please only bring essential visitors(other than the patient) to the office.

We are testing Telemedicine today and hope to offer this to everyone who wants it in the next few days!

We will continually review CDC and governmental recommendation and update regularly!

Patient Recommendations regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Administrator · 03/14/2020 ·

Dear Patients of Chattanooga Allergy Clinic, 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has progressed to both Georgia and Tennessee with the number of confirmed cases continuing to grow. It has even prompted the state of Tennessee to declare a State of Emergency. CAC is highly concerned about the spread of this virus especially for many of our patients that are at a higher risk due to their immune deficiencies and/or underlying asthma. 

We feel that it is very important during this time for CAC and its patients to work together to be proactive in preventing the spread of this virus for the safety and care of our patients and staff. Patient Recommendations: 

  1. Take your prescribed medications as instructed. Strict compliance is very important.
  2. Frequently wash your hands with soap through the day. Use soap and water for 30 seconds. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are unavailable. The sanitizer should be at least 60% alcohol. 
  3. Use proper coughing and sneezing etiquette. Use your elbow. Wash hands afterwards.
  4. Do not shake hands and keep your distance from others. 
  5. Stay home if you’re able. Avoid large gatherings and social events as much as possible.
  6. If you are experiencing fever, cough, shortness of breath, body aches, severe headaches, vomiting, diarrhea, or any other feelings of illness, please call our office BEFORE coming in for your shots or appointment. 
  7. If you have traveled in the past three weeks or have been in close contact with someone who has traveled in the past three weeks, please call our office BEFORE coming in for your shots or appointment. 
** If you have had a FEVER within FIVE days or have an active FEVER, DO NOT come in for your shots or appointment. Call our office to discuss with a nurse/provider and to reschedule. (423) 899-0431.

We are working diligently to stay up-to-date on all the information available related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will continue to update our patients and staff as new information becomes available. Please exercise extreme caution and do not hesitate to contact our office with any questions. 

Thank you for your understanding during this time as we work together to stay healthy and safe. -Chattanooga Allergy Clinic
