Important Updates on COVID-19
Dr. Garcia and the staff at Allergi Group are committed to follow rules and regulations proposed by CDC and other Health organizations. We will provide treatment to our patients with every available technology at our disposal.
Dr. Garcia supports 100% Telehealth – Expanding Services During the Pandemic as proposed by both the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology (AAAAI) American College of Allergy, and the Asthma, and Immunology (ACAAI).
Both AAAAI and ACAAI suggest that Providers who wish to limit their exposure to infected patients may choose to see patients from their home. To do this, patients would go to the allergist’s office where they could be seen by the allergist using facilitated telehealth. To reduce patient exposure, established patients could be seen from their home. This can be done if the visit is performed either with a 2-way video connection or by telephone.
Most insurance are paying for such visit including Medicare. If you have a follow up visit we may be able to treat you over the phone. Please check with your health insurance carrier and let us know.

How Many People Do Allergies Affect?
For some, allergies are a nuisance that is often transient (seasonal) or persistent (perennial) that may be easily treated with over the counter remedies or prescription allergy medications. However, these medications have side effects and need to be taken on a daily basis. For others, allergies are substantial health issues that impact all aspects of their quality of life. For these individuals and their families, allergies are life-altering conditions.
Often, nasal congestion, sneezing itching and wheezing may be the tip of the iceberg when it comes to allergies and asthma. Allergies and asthma are chronic medical conditions that require proper long-term treatment to overcome visits to the emergency room and missing days at work or school. In addition, allergies and asthma, if not treated, can lead to sinus and ear infections, lack of concentration, fatigue, and sleep deprivation
In addition to receiving the most current scientific medical care and diagnostic procedures, patients requiring “desensitization” have access to advanced, state of the art European standards of treatment. This approach (SLIT) "sublingual immunotherapy" or drops is unique to the Allergi Group in the Tampa Bay area. If you are suffering from allergy-induced symptoms, please give us a call for an evaluation.
