Do you suffer from allergies, sinusitis, or asthma but struggle to find a qualified allergy specialist to provide the treatment you need? Board-certified allergist and immunologist Julie Wendt, MD, at Relieve Allergy, Asthma & Hives has a solution: telemedicine. Dr. Wendt is based in Scottsdale, Arizona, but uses telemedicine to provide comprehensive care to people living anywhere in Arizona. Call the office or connect online today to schedule a virtual visit for asthma and all types of allergies.
Telemedicine gives you the ability to get medical care from Relieve Allergy, Asthma & Hives without going to the office. No matter where you live in Arizona, you can use your smartphone, tablet, or computer to meet with your provider online and get help for allergies, asthma, sinusitis, hives, and eczema.
You can schedule your initial and follow-up appointments through telemedicine. As you meet through a video conference, your provider learns about your medical history and symptoms and explores your exposure to allergens, irritants, and other things that trigger your symptoms.
Many people get all the care they need through telemedicine. You may be able to take care of some allergy testing at home. Your provider can order an at-home allergy test kit that uses a small blood sample taken from your finger. After you take the sample, you send it to a lab that tests for signs of specific allergens.
However, if you need other allergy testing, like a skin prick or patch test, your provider recommends a walk-in lab or clinic that’s near your home.
Your provider guides your treatment through telemedicine visits. They use virtual appointments to create plans that help you avoid allergy and asthma triggers. And if you need medication, they send the prescription to your local pharmacy, where you can pick it up at your convenience.
In the event you need immunotherapy, you may be able to get oral sublingual drops (that go under your tongue) rather than allergy shots, depending on the type of allergy.
You only need to connect with the Relieve Allergy, Asthma & Hives team, either with a phone call or through the online booking feature.
After learning you’re interested in an appointment, they schedule a time and send you the instructions for accessing your video conference with the doctor. They also let you know if you need to complete any forms and information they may need from you during your online visit.
Relieve Allergy, Asthma & Hives contract with many health care providers. Most cover the costs for telemedicine services, paying the same as they would for in-office care, but check with your provider to verify the coverage provided by your plan.
