Accepted Insurances

We accept all major insurances at Uptown Allergy & Asthma.

If you have questions about your coverage, please contact us.

What to Expect

On your first visit, Dr. Mehta will review your history, focusing on whatever your main concerns are. This is followed by a physical exam and diagnostic testing. The first visit typically lasts about 45 minutes to 1 hour and the patient will leave with a detailed treatment plan that will improve his or her symptoms.

Allergy & Asthma Testing

Generally, skin testing for allergies is performed on the first visit but sometimes blood tests are ordered depending on the nature of the problem. Skin testing consists of scratching the skin and is not painful (but can itch). Pulmonary function testing is also often performed if a patient has respiratory issues.

Antihistamines must be discontinued prior to skin testing

Please discontinue antihistamines for 5 days prior to your visit with Dr. Mehta. Decongestants without antihistamines may be taken. If you have any questions about antihistamines in your medication, please contact us for guidance.

What to bring for your first visit:

(1) Completed new patient forms, (2) Your current insurance card, (3) Physician referral forms (if required by your insurance carrier), and (4) any past records, including blood tests, past allergy testing, recent imaging or other relevant documents.
