The initial KCAA appointment is devoted to identifying patient needs, answering questions, and creating a preliminary treatment plan.
When the appointment is made, we provide login information to our patient portal. It is important to log in and complete the necessary paperwork prior to the appointment. This helps us keep the appointment on schedule and provides essential information to KCAA care providers.
Be sure to bring a current insurance card and photo ID. Patients are responsible for any copays or deductibles at the time of service. KCAA accepts VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and AMEX.
IMPORTANT: Do not take antihistamines for at least 4 days prior to testing. Antihistamines can interfere with the results. Click HERE for a partial list.
