					Dear _________________,

This is to confirm your allergy testing appointment scheduled at ____________________ on
___________________________________. Please do not take any antihistamines or
medications that contain antihistamines for five (5) days before your appointment. If you
are taking an antibiotic for an infection, continue to do so as directed by your doctor. You may
continue to use your nasal inhaler. You must continue all your asthma medications. If you have
questions about any other types of medications you are taking, please call our office and check
with a nurse to see if they will inhibit allergy testing. Please bring a list of medications you are
currently taking, and any medications you are allergic to. If you have medical records from
another physician or allergist, it would be beneficial for us to have a copy to review.

The testing appointment itself is approximately one hour long. You may wish to bring
something, such as a book, to occupy your time during intervals in the testing procedure. An
adult, familiar with pertinent medical information, must accompany a child being tested. We
also request that parents being tested not bring their small children with them to the appointment.
If you have long hair, please wear it up on the day of your allergy testing.

If your insurance requires a referral, please make sure that we have it before the appointment.

Please notify us at least 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel or reschedule this
appointment. We look forward to working with you and welcome you as a patient.
