Effective Allergy Management in Aberdeen, SD

Patient Preparation:
At Aberdeen Asthma & Allergy we pride ourselves in giving you the best care possible. We need your cooperation by being prepared for your visit.
We ask you bring a current list of all medications and any paperwork relevant to your appointment.

Prescriptions:
Are your medications running low? If you are unable to make it until your next visit before your medications run out, please contact your pharmacy to refill any medications.

Financial Responsibility:
Payment is due at time of service for all co-pays, deductible and/or co-insurances. Please contact your insurance company to find out how your office visit and allergy testing will be covered. For patients with insurances that we do not participate with, 100% of you visit will be due at the time of your visit.

New Patients

For your first visit, you will need to provide a photo ID, your current insurance card and the appropriate filled out paperwork. For those not on Medicare, we will provide testing on your initial visit. Please with hold taking any medications with an antihistamine four days prior to your appointment to allow testing results to be accurate. If you have questions regarding any medications, please contact your pharmacy. Your initial appointment may take as long as 2 to 3 hours.

Cancellations:
Your time and ours is very valuable, please contact our office 24 hours in advance if you are unable to keep your appointment so we can offer your spot to someone else.

What to expect:
With all visits, our nursing staff will start with taking your vitals, review your medications and possibly do a pulmonary function test (spiro). Once in the exam room, Dr. Luzier would then go over all paperwork/office notes. Dr Luzier will inquire about your symptoms, exposures and timing of all issues that occur.

Pulmonary Function Testing (Spiro):
The measuring of how well your bronchial tubes are working. We have a special machine you blow into which collects data to see how well your bronchial tubes are working or how obstructed they are.

Allergy Testing:
We test toward many different elements of foods, animals and environments. There are two different kinds of skin testing. Prick Test is when a small drop of an allergen is placed on an applicator and then the skin is pricked. Usually this test is done on the back. Results start to show in 20 to 30 minutes. Intradermal Testing is when a tiny amount of an allergen is injected into the skin on your arm.

We are closed on all major US holidays.
During severe weather conditions, please call us before your appointment to verify that we are open.
