COVID 19 INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS 

Information as of March 17, 2020

The following is information for our existing patients and those who wish to see Dr. Holbreich for a new patient consultation. We will update as needed Our Mission During this time of national emergency we are dedicated to keeping our patients, existing and new as well as our staff safe. We are planning to provide consultations via TeleHealth or virtual appointments that can be done from your home. This can include new patient appointments, existing appointments, future routine appointments and sick visits.

Impact of COVID 19 on patients with allergies and asthma

The current information that we have is that patients both children and adults are not at higher risk because of allergies or asthma. If you or your child is using corticosteroids inhalers, topical steroids for eczema or swallowed steroids for EoE, these medications DO NOT affect your immunity and they should be continued. Seeking emergency services Patients should not go to the emergency room for increased asthma or allergy symptoms. Emergency departments are not a safe environment. For food allergic reaction administer injectable epinephrine if indicated and contact Dr. Holbreich. Most patients can be observed at home and emergency care is not needed as epinephrine is the only medication that will reverse a reaction. For increasing asthma symptoms contact Dr. Holbreich. If you have a peak flow meter make sure those numbers are checked and available when you call. For questions about whether you should go to the ER contact Dr. Holbreich first. For emergencies you can reach him at 317-372-4801

Allergy Injections

As of the week of March 16 we will be giving allergy injections on a limited basis. We will continue this as long as we feel it is safe. For those of you on injections our staff will be giving you detailed information about how we will be going forward.

 

Patients new to our practice

If you currently have an appointment as a new patient or wish to see Dr. Holbreich as a new patient we are making every effort to accommodate you during this time of national emergency. We will be offering TeteHealth or virtual appointments for your or your child’s initial appointment. Once the national emergency is lifted and it is safe to be seen we will schedule an appointment in our office. Dr. Holbreich can advise you on the best management until a face to face visit can be scheduled. Insurance coverage for TeteHealth has been expanded and your insurance may cover a new patient visit. We encourage you to call your provider and ask if a NEW visit is covered as some insurance will only cover Telehealth visits for existing patients. This is changing with new guidelines concerning TeleHealth. In the event that your insurance does not cover a new visit you will not be charged for this initial consultation. Existing patients For those of you who have been with Dr. Holbreich as established patients we want you to continue to receive the quality care that you have received in the past. We are working hard to arrange for TeleHealth visits to discuss your allergy and asthma issues or to schedule you at a time in the future for non-urgent issues. We know that concerns about you or your child’s medical issues can be worrisome and we are doing our best to have Dr. Holbreich available either by phone or TeteHealth
