Helping You Understand Your Immune System and Take Control of your Health.
San Diego Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Consultants
When you click below, you will be taken to Zocdoc.com where you can "book" your tentative appointment.
We'll call you within a few business hours for our 10-minute Pre-Visit Check in order to:
--Review your health plan details (if applicable) so you'll know for sure if we're in-network (we usually are) and how your plan works for a "specialist" visit with us
--Discuss your symptoms and goals of treatment
--Coordinate getting any relevant medical records before your visit
--Review common meds which interfere with allergy testing (assuming you and the doctor think testing makes sense)
--Answer any questions you may have
--Review directions to our practice
--Well, you get the idea
This call is very important if you want an organized, productive visit.
Trust us, we're a doctor.
**If booking for a skin allergy/rash/"hives" please call us instead of booking online. There are hundreds of skin conditions, most of which we don't treat, but Dermatology treats them all. Dermatology (or Primary Care) may be a better place to start unless you have allergic contact dermatitis or atopic dermatitis/eczema.
OK, go ahead and click the red button. See you soon!
Don't have time to call your health plan?
We'll call your plan and email you a detailed explanation of any cost to you for a visit here. (We can even patch you in on a conference call if you like!)

Tricare as primary insurance, but patients may choose to see us out-of-network (Tricare Standard, etc.), or as secondary insurance to Medicare.
We are out-of-network with Medi-Cal/Medicaid and Medi-Cal HMOs. We apologize but we cannot see patients out of network if they have these plans.
