To Our Windom Allergy Family
We continue to always be available to our patients during this viral pandemic. Here is an update on office services:
We are seeing patients in the office, but for those preferring to stay home, we’re happy to arrange a telemedicine visit. Just let us know whether you want to come in or see us virtually when you call for an appointment or when we callyou to remind you about an upcoming appointment.
With fewer people in the office (doctors, nurses and other patients), it is a good time to keep up on your oral immunotherapy (OIT) dosing. Give us a call, text Wendy through OhMD, or writeus from your patient portal, telling us when you’d like to come in.
As above, with a less crowded office than usual, staying on top of your allergies with your regular allergy shot is a safe and simple process.We encourage our shot patients to park in the South parking lot, so they enter the door directly into the shot waiting room.If there are more than 3-4 people in the waiting room, you are welcome to sit outside on the porch and spend your 30 minutes looking for alligators in the creek.New hours: 8:30-4.
BIOLOGIC MEDICATION INJECTIONS & IMMUNOGLOBULIN THERAPY
Patients on biologic medications (Xolair, Dupixent, Nucala, Cinqair, and Fasenra) should maintain their current schedule. The same goes for our immunodeficiency patients receiving immunoglobulin replacement therapy.
It is hard to believe that it has been 12 years since Gerard Marsalisi joined Windom Allergy. Gerard came onboard ‘locked and loaded’, having previously worked in an allergy office in St. Petersburg. As the most experienced nurse in skin testing, pulmonary function testing, patch testing and everything allergy, he is leaned on heavily by others learning how we do things. He’s also a favorite of many long-time patients in the practice. Outside of work Gerard sings like an angel for his church, has two daughters, and lives in Parish.
