Charleston ENT & Allergy remains committed to the health and safety of our patients and employees as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread. As a reminder, the current situation is very fluid and changing hour-to-hour. Patients are encouraged to check the following resources for up-to-date information on COVID-19:
Charleston ENT & Allergy is now taking aggressive steps to minimize person-to-person interactions and therefore have temporarily closed several offices. We encourage our patients to utilize our telehealth services (see Telehealth Services below) during this time.
We are currently only scheduling in-office appointments if you have an urgent medical need. If you have an issue that cannot be remedied via teleheath services, you may make an appointment at one of our open offices.
Please remember that we are unable to test for COVID-19 in any of our offices. If you think you may have the virus or have been in contact with someone that has tested positive, we encourage you to take part in a virtual health screening (see Virtual Screening Resources below) and avoid contact with other people.
Call if you require an urgent in-office appointment: 843-766-7103.
Telehealth services are now available for established Charleston ENT & Allergy patients. Simply call to make an appointment. Our staff will then send you a link to access when it’s time for your visit and you’ll meet with a provider from the comfort and safety of your home.
Call to make your telehealth appointment: 843-766-7103.
Allergy Shot Patients:
The current guidance from the CDC and ENT/Allergy governing body is that only urgent or emergent clinical visits and procedures be performed. In line with these recommendations, allergy immunotherapy (allergy shots) will be indefinitely postponed until we can more fully ensure the safety of our patients while continuing to adhere to best practice guidelines. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this public health concern, and remain committed to participating in your healthcare.
We are actively evaluating other ways to serve our patients. Sublingual immunotherapy may be an option to treat your allergies. Please call if you’re interested in learn more.
