2. Telemedicine.  See a doctor conveniently from your home!

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
There are 5 simple steps for Telemedicine Visit:
 ​​

Step One:  Get Started

Click below to enter your basic information.  The medical assistant will help you fill out your allergy questionnaire and then have you speak to a medical provider (or schedule an appointment).

Step Two:  Doctor Visit

Talk with a medical provider (via phone or via video conference).  The medical provider will review the completed patient allergy questionnaire and your history and symptoms.  If appropriate, the medical provider will order your fingerstick test.  You will then sign the Requisition Form (via DocuSign).

Step Three:  Fingerstick Test

We will mail the test kit to your home, along with instructions on how to properly draw blood (see below buttons to view a PDF and/or an instructional video).  You will then:
  • Prick your finger.
  • Mail your blood card to Lab (envelope provided).  
    • Note:  Your provider will mail directly to the lab the following items on your behalf:
      • Medical Provider notes 
      • Completed Patient Questionnaire (that you completed via telemed)
      • Completed Requisition Form (that you signed via DocuSign)
      • VA Insurance Information 


Step Four:  Results

Your medical provider will review with you the results of the test (which can also be sent to you).  If the test has positive results, you can elect to receive treatment (brush your teeth with our unique prescribed toothpaste).  Your medical provider will write the appropriate prescription and send to our compounding pharmacy to fill. 

Step Five:  Receive Allerdent Toothpaste

The doctor will write an oral mucosal immunotherapy (OMIT) prescription for non-food-based allergies and send to the compounding pharmacy.  The pharmacy will send to your home a 90-day supply pharmaceutical graded metered pump.  The pharmacy will then automatically mail another 90-day supply to your home for the next three quarters to complete your one-year prescription.

Note:  You will want to set up another visit in a year for another fingerstick test to review your progress.  The average OMIT regimen is typically 3-5 years.
