Welcome to the website of Allergy and Asthma Healthcare in St Louis, MO. Thank you for allowing us to participate in your care. We are a group of board certified allergists who are committed to providing excellent care to patients aged birth to adult. Our highly trained staff of physicians, nurses, and medical assistants are dedicated to providing compassionate, comprehensive, and quality care to our patients individual needs. Our three offices in Kirkwood, Festus, and Lake St. Louis are equipped with the most current technology for diagnosis and treatment of allergies and asthma.
Appointments for all three offices can be scheduled via our Kirkwood office phone at 314-821-2100. Please specify for which physician and office you are scheduling.
Your first visit will, most likely, be for a consultation with the physician. It is important for our physicians to meet you, review your medical history, and perform a physical exam as part of your diagnosis and treatment. If necessary, testing for allergies or asthma may be performed on this first visit. Each patient is treated individually, therefore it is difficult for our staff to anticipate what will be done at your first visit. Please bring along a list of all medications that you are taking as well as any pertinent medical information.
Our receptionist will ask to make a copy of your insurance card. If your health plan requires a written referral from your primary care physician, then there must be a CURRENT referral form in our office on the day of your visit. If your health plan requires a referral and you arrive for your appointment without one (or if it was not sent by your primary care physician), you can either pay for the services at the time of your visit or reschedule your appointment. We suggest that you check with your primary care physician several days ahead of your appointment to confirm that they have sent the referral.
We are required to collect payment for services and all co-payments at the time of the visit (except Medicare). For patients with Medicare, we are a participating provider and accept assignments of all Medicare claims.
We thank you for entrusting us with your medical care and look forward to seeing you soon!!
Dr. Sabio, Dr. Ruiz and Staff
