Dear Valued Patients,
During these unprecedented times we want to inform you of the precautions we have implemented to keep you and our staff safe. We are open and are happy to announce that we are available for NEW and ESTABLISHED patients 805-482-8989. We transitioned to Telemedicine and we are following insurance company recommendations. The platform is Doxy.me and is very easy to use.
We are continuing in office:
- administration of Biologic (XOLAIR, NUCALA, FASENRA, DUPIXENT) injectable medication
- office visits approved by our MD’s
- allergy shot therapy with adjusted hours, and adjusted protocols to maintain safety
Prior to any patient entering the office a series of questions will be asked and temperatures will be taken at the front door.
Spring is here and we are expecting a pollen filled season. We want to do our very best to prevent asthma flares and sinus infections. Our focus is to keep our immune deficient patients healthy, eczema controlled, hives quiet, and provide food allergy guidance. We do not want our patients to wind up in an urgent care or ER unnecessarily. We can do most care via telemedicine and we may elect to bring you into the office for an appointment if necessary.
We continue to focus on the safety of our patients, staff, and visitors by:
- Following protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and thorough cleaning (masks/gloves etc.).
- Screening patients by phone and prior to entering our offices so those at risk can be assessed appropriately. NO sick patients in the office.
- No magazines in waiting areas.
- Taking temperatures of ALL visitors and patients before entering the office.
- Telemedicine and referral for suspicious COVID-19 testing when appropriate.
- Reducing patient/visitors in waiting room. Patients are expedited to a room for appointments.
- Employees must be well to come to work.
Dedicated to caring for you, Caring Accessible Excellence,
Coastal Allergy Care

One of the marvels of the human body is that it can defend itself against harmful invaders such as viruses or bacteria. In some people, the body reacts to harmless substances such as dust, mold or pollen by producing an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE). When patients with one of the allergic diseases (such as rhinitis or asthma) are exposed to these substances, the immune system then rallies its defenses, launching a host of complex chemical weapons to attack and destroy the supposed enemy. In the process, some unpleasant and, in extreme cases, life-threatening symptoms may be experienced.
Hundreds or even thousands of ordinary substances can trigger allergic reactions. These are called “allergens.” Among the most common are plant pollens, molds, household dust (dust mites), animal dander, industrial chemicals, foods, medicines and insect stings.
An allergic reaction may occur anywhere in the body, but usually appears in the skin, eyes, lining of the stomach, nose, sinuses, throat and lungs — places where special immune system cells are stationed to fight off invaders that are inhaled, swallowed or come in contact with the skin.

Tip from Our Allergists
We want to help you help yourself.
It is our belief that the first line of defense against allergy is environmental control. Scientific studies over the last several years have shown which environmental control measures are effective and which are not. The advice given here is based on those studies. By following a simple plan, you can significantly decrease your exposure to allergy-causing substances, and significantly improve your health. In some cases, exposure can be eliminated or decreased to the point that no other treatment is necessary. In other cases exposure can be decreased only partially, making other types of treatment necessary. But even in those situations, less treatment will be required, and it will work better if you have first decreased exposure. If an individual is allergic to one or more substances, the sum total of exposures at a given time (the “total allergen load”) determines whether or not the person’s threshold has been reached and will cause symptoms.
