Become a Patient

Patients may be self-referred or referred by another physician. The process is the same for all referrals and is outlined below:

Scheduling

For all appointments call 404-778-5050. Please allow 2wks for scheduling, wait times are shorter or longer based on individual provider availability. Currently we are only offering Asthma and Allergy Clinic visits at The Emory Clinic (TEC) Clifton Rd clinic location. Address:

TEC - Clifton Road:   1365 Clifton Rd, Building A, 4th Floor - Atlanta, GA     30322        Fax: 404-778-4431

Clinic Visits and Parking

Please arrive 30 minutes early for your initial visit to allow us time to record your insurance information and for completion of a new patient questionnaire. Bring a valid form of identification, insurance information, relevant medical documents (see below) and a responsible adult for transportation if you are having a procedure. Valet parking is available, wheelchair service is provided free of charge. Water, coffee and refreshments are frequently provided in our waiting rooms, and a cafeteria is available onsite as well.

Relevant Documentation - Important, Please Read:

We ask that you provide all relevant documents prior to your initial visit, or you may bring them with you to your appointment. This is to expedite your evaluation, prevent duplication of expensive testing and allow for comparison when new studies are required. These documents can be obtained through the medical records department of any office or hospital, typically at no additional charge. Specify the location of your initial clinic visit on the records release (see contact information above).

Please include:

1. Office or hospital notes pertinent to your complaint or condition (hospital history and physicals, office history or followup notes, consultation notes, etc).

2. Pulmonary function tests -  new and old testing, as far back as possible.

3. Lung imaging reports - Chest x-rays, CT scans, MRIs, PET scans, ultrasounds, contrasted studies, and any other relevant chest imaging.

4. Lung imaging CDs - the actual images for the studies above are invaluable and in many cases required as part of your evaluation.

5. Allergy Testing, skin and blood - if available.

6. Laboratory and pathology studies - recent common lab testing and any special tests relevant to your complaint or diagnosis, including CULTURE DATA (sputum, blood, urine, bronchoalveolar lavage) and pathology reports.

7. Referring physician contact information, including fax and office phone numbers.

As a general rule, the more documentation you provide the better we are able to help you. Be prepared to answer questions about your personal and family medical history, social and exposure history and past/present medication regimen as well.

Patient Portal

We are excited to announce the launching of the Emory Patient Portal, which allows patients on-line access to their diagnostic information including labs, radiological testing and more. You may also email office staff with questions regarding your care. Enrollment is easy, please ask your receptionist for a brochure with instructions and additional information.
