Commonly asked questions:
a. I would like an evaluation with an allergist. How do I make an appointment?
You will need a referral from your primary care provider to the Allergy Clinic in order to make an appointment. Once your provider has placed the referral, you may call the central appointment line at (719) 524-2273 in 2-3 days to schedule your visit.
b. What do I need to do to prepare for my appointment?
Some allergy testing requires patients stop their antihistamines for seven days. Examples of antihistamines are Claritin (loratidine), Zyrtec (cetirizine), Allegra (fexofenadine), and Benadryl (diphenhydramine). Some nose sprays, eye drops,  and cold medicines also contain antihistamines. Please continue all other medications, including asthma inhalers. We will still be able to have a productive appointment if you are unable to stop your antihistamines. Please call with questions.
c. How long will my appointment last?
Most initial appointments are about one to two hours, but some can last three to four hours. Most follow up appointments are 40 minutes.
