Welcome to Our Practice

 Connecticut Asthma and Allergy Center

 CAAC does not have COVID-19 vaccine to administer to patients. We will update all our patients if we receive any doses to administer in the future. 

April 22nd, 2021 update

Mask requirement

Governor Lamont has recently announced starting in May, he will be pulling back on the restrictions businesses have regarding capacity.  It is not yet clear if the mask requirement will change from required to recommended.

At CAAC, we will continue to maintain the same strict mask policy for all patients above the age of 2 years old within our waiting room and office space.  This is a requirement of our office to maintain the safety of all our patients.  If you or your child is unable to wear a well-fitted cloth or surgical mask within our office space, please notify our scheduling team with specific information when booking appointments as we may need to make special accommodations.  All patients receiving allergy shots must continue to wear a well-fitting cloth or surgical mask while in our waiting room. 

 

Please read the following updates in advance of your appointment.

CAAC response to COVID-19
CAAC is dedicated to keeping our patients and staff protected from exposure to COVID-19.

  • We require ALL patients over 2 years of age to wear well-fitting cloth or surgical mask when they come in. If you or your child are unable to wear a well-fitted cloth or surgical mask, please notify our scheduling team upon booking your appointment as we may need to make special accommodations for you.
  • We are sanitizing the waiting room chairs and surfaces at least twice per day. We are sanitizing every exam room from top to bottom between each patient visit. All equipment such as blood pressure cuffs, otoscopes, and stethoscopes will be sanitized between patients. 
  • We are asking that patients who are symptomatic with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 schedule telemedicine visits.
  • If you have traveled out of state within 10 days of your appointment, please call in advance to review our office policy with our scheduling team.
  • There is a health screen implemented by Hartford Healthcare that all patients must complete upon booking and checking in for appointments. 
  • We are asking ALL patients to not bring additional family members to appointments.  Minors should be accompanied by only one adult.  Siblings and other family members will not be permitted into the office unless they are also scheduled to be seen.
  • Please bring a video capable device with Zoom downloaded in advance to your office visit in order to aid in the history taking process.
  • Patients with office visit appointments in all offices will be checked in by phone and wait in their car for an exam room to open. 
  • Our shot patient appointments are limited to avoid crowding in the waiting room.  Shots are by appointment only.  Please arrive at your scheduled appointment time. Early or late arrivals will be asked to reschedule by phone from their vehicle. 

Thank you all for your compliance with these rules as we navigate this difficult situation.  As information continues to evolve, we will keep our website updated.
