Provider Reviews of Allergychoices

Allergychoices Changed the Way She Treats Allergy

“Basically, we now offer to our patients both allergy drops as well as allergy shots, with a high recommendation towards allergy drops for all of the reasons we mentioned before. It’s easier. Even though it’s three times a day it’s much more tolerable for patients. They don’t get stuck. It’s less costly for commercial patients as well because they don’t have a copay every week.

“It has really broadened the way we treat allergy in terms of offering it to more patients. In addition, allergy drops tend to have a lower reactivity rate, so there are less patients having anaphylaxis in your office. It tends to be much safer in your office and an opportunity to just broaden the scope of what you do.”

— Lorraine Williams, MD, FACS, ENT, Georgia

How Allergychoices Impacts Patients

“I think over the course of the years that I’ve utilized the allergy drops, what I see is patients continue to come back. They see encouragement that they can use less allergy medication, whether it’s over the counter or prescribed, which benefits them for cost. We always discuss cost of the sublingual immunotherapy with patients and the fact that it’s not necessarily covered by their insurance, but when they look at the cost benefit of not having to buy over the counter products, it really benefits them because it does pay for itself over the course of that time.

“I do use a lot of food allergy drops, even more than environmental, and we see a huge improvement in patients with less symptoms and being able to return to school on a daily basis.”

— Amy Fitzgerald, FNP, Family Practice | MN

Allergy Therapy That Fits Into Busy Schedules

“The response from patients has been fantastic. It’s convenient for families. Parents with children who need therapy who are in school are able to have the therapy at home instead of having to come in weekly for the injection therapy.

“Allergychoices has allowed us to offer our patients another alternative which enables them to free up their schedule. It’s difficult for patients with families and many other commitments, time constraints make it very difficult. Allergychoices has really made it possible for many of our patients to get allergy therapy when they just wouldn’t have had the time and ability to do it.”

— Matthew Patterson, MD, ENT | MN

How Allergychoices Impacted Her Practice and Patients

“Our ENT surgeon has a large sinus surgery practice. We also treat our sinus patients medically. We weren’t treating the whole patient before we added this to what we do. Since 60% of our sinus patients, at least, have allergies, they do so much better after surgery, they feel better, they need less medication. So it has helped our practice immensely and the patients are happy they don’t have go anywhere else; they want to stay with us. They can do everything under one roof. It’s a win-win for everybody.”

— Michelle Leonard, DNP, CT ENT Sinus Center

What Providers Should Know About Allergychoices

“What I’d like to recommend to other colleagues is that this is a seamless transition into your practice. You’re able to offer allergy drops to patients and monitor them and keep them in practice.

“The kids, of course, don’t have to get an injection every week so they’re not crying and hollering and screaming. They’re not afraid to come into your office. Kids tend to respond to it much better.

“Then, of course, you get the opportunity to treat both environmental allergens and food allergens with the allergy drops as well.”

— Lorraine Williams, MD, FACS

Introducing Allergy Drops is an Easy Process

“As far as introducing Allergychoices, I don’t think that you should be fearful. I think that it’s a very easy process. When I have questions, Allergychoices especially is very helpful on answering questions on prescribing, where to start. The pharmacists are excellent in helping with that.

“I haven’t had any issues or major reactions. Patients tolerate it very well and they really appreciate it once they get it going because it almost allows them to get their life back. That’s the fun part, when patients can start to feel better and get back to work and school. That’s what we do, and that’s why we’re here as doctors and providers.”

— Amy Fitzgerald, FNP, Family Practice | MN

Top Notch Coordination Between Clinic and Allergychoices

“The method that Allergychoices uses is something that most of us in allergy are familiar with in the use of injection therapy. It’s very easy for the clinic staff to work with the Allergychoices staff. There’s very close coordination. Patients get their materials [allergy drops] within days of requesting the materials. Orders are checked very closely.

“They do a fantastic job of not only working with the patient, but in coordinating with the clinic staff so that you can provide the services in an efficient and safe manner.”

— Matthew Patterson, MD, ENT | MN

How You Can Do More with Less Staff

“Before we started sublingual immunotherapy with Allergychoices, we did mix shots and SLIT in house; we did it ourselves. Financially, it did not help us or the patients. In fact, I think we lost money. Not just on the supplies, but on the staff. Our nurses were constantly having to use valuable patient time to mix the bottles. It just did not make sense for workflow for patient care, or financially for ourselves or our patients.

My thought, if I was going to tell another practice, if you’re adding allergy care and treatment, definitely go with Allergychoices. They’re also doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and their ancillary support customer service staff are amazing. There’s a lot of support out there for questions that come up.”
