This is an unprecedented time. COVID-19 unfortunately has proven to be a true pandemic and we must do what we can to help minimize its effect on our health care system, economy and society in general. After careful and difficult deliberation, we at Allergy and Asthma Care will be temporarily closed starting Friday, March 20 at 4:30 pm.
As the impact and breadth of COVID-19 changes daily, so will our response. Our plan beginning Saturday, March 21 (subject to change and will be updated on this account) is to be available to provide care for you in as safe a way as possible, detailed as follows:
-Phones will be answered by minimal staff from 9 am-3 pm Monday through Friday.
-No patients will be seen in the office.
-Drs. Berson, Kemp and Park will be available for telemedicine appointments (more information to come).
-Allergy shots are suspended until further notice. Patients on Xolair, Nucala, Dupixent or other biologics, please call the office to determine care.
We are in unchartered territory and ask for patience as we navigate a new way of practicing medicine. There may be wait times when you call, and there may be modifications of this plan as circumstances change. Please trust that we are committed to resuming our regular face-to-face personal way of caring for you and your family as soon as we can. This was an incredibly difficult decision for us but we truly believe that it is the right one for helping prevent the spread of COVID-19 and for keeping us all safe!
As always, thank you for your understanding and trust. Wash your hands, don’t touch your face, avoid unnecessary social interaction, and BE SAFE.
With gratitude, Drs. Berson, Kemp, Park and everyone at Allergy and Asthma Care of St. Louis
