FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - We stopped by the Allergy & Asthma Center to talk about medical related allergies. Below you can find some of the answers to some common questions they receive.

Why should I choose The Allergy & Asthma Center?

We believe that most of our patients choose us because they trust that we can help them feel better. Many patients also comment that they appreciate how our friendly and professional staff helps them with all of their questions and concerns.

When should I call the Allergy & Asthma Center and when should I call my family doctor?

If you are exhibiting symptoms such as increased cough, wheezing, chest tightness or pain, increased nasal drainage and congestion, or headache, please contact the Allergy and Asthma Center. It is likely that you are experiencing an exacerbation of your allergic disease, asthma, or both.

Are samples provided to patients when new medications are ordered?

When we prescribe a medication to a patient for the first time, we often provide samples of the medication for the first week’s dose. That way, if the medication does not work the patient has not paid for something they won’t use. The following is our “Samples Policy”: The Physician–Patient relationship must be intact in order for samples to be dispensed (i.e. follow-up visits must be up to date).2.) Samples are given for a trial period. If the sample medication is well tolerated, a prescription will be given to the patient for use over a longer period of time.3.) The responsibility for the payment of prescription medication rests upon the patient. Samples may not be available for all medications we prescribe.
