- Due to the nature of our clinic, do not wear any perfumes or other scented products as this puts our other patients at risk.
Bring a list of all medications that you are currently taking. IF you have concerns about certain food allergies:
- Feel free to bring a small amount of the raw food in separate sealed containers or baggies so we can use it for skin testing, if needed.
- Please bring labels (ingredients) of packaged food that you feel may have caused the problem.
- Check out the current clinical trials Dr. Ellis is seeking volunteers for.
Cancellation Policy. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please give at least 48 hours notice.
For Follow-up Patients. You do not need to stop your antihistamines unless Dr. Ellis has specifically told you to do so. Please continue to bring your medication list with you at every visit.
