INITIAL EVALUATION VISIT
We want to make your first and every visit a satisfying experience. Please help us accomplish that by expecting our team to gather demographic and insurance information during the time of scheduling your initial appointment. Once your appointment is scheduled, our reception team will direct you to the online registration system known as “Phreesia”. The Phreesia Patient Management System will make registration for your initial evaluation and follow-up visits secure, easy, and fast. Please let our reception team know if you need assistance completing the registration process. We will ensure that all of the required paperwork is completed prior to your visit.
We strongly advise patients to complete the New Patient forms prior to their appointment as well as completing the Check-in process with Phreesia 15-minutes prior to their scheduled visit.
For your security, please be prepared with the following information:
All insurance cards
Driver’s license or photo identification
List of all prescriptions and over-the-counter medications you currently take
New Patient forms (please click on the link, print and complete prior to your arrival)
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR ALLERGY EVALUATION VISIT
Our goal is to present you with a diagnosis and recommend a treatment program at the conclusion of your initial evaluation. We will begin a thorough evaluation by listening to your allergy journey, followed by a detailed medical history, physical examination, and allergy testing as indicated. In order to perform allergy testing during the initial visit, certain medications need to be discontinued prior to your visit to avoid their interference with the testing results and interpretation. Please review our Allergy Testing Dos and Don’ts upon scheduling your initial evaluation appointment. After your initial visit, your Sher Allergy allergist will send a letter to your primary care or referring doctor to facilitate care coordination integral to your health and wellbeing.

“I was really struggling with asthma. I didn't often get sick but when I did I was really sick. Since I have been taking allergy shots with Dr. Sher, I have not been sick. It is a process. It doesn't happen overnight. But it has really worked for me and I think it would work for you.
