You’ll Be Surprised By The Advancements In Allergy Care — With Notes About Cost For Plan Sponsors
Mention “allergies” and we all think of hay fever, mold and pollen counts and kid and adults lining up in allergy clinics for those weekly shots.
But a lot has changed recently with new treatments for nut allergies, a spate of new and expensive specialty drugs and a continued focus of mold and so-called sick building syndrome. And those weekly shots? Many have gone monthly, a big savings in both time and dollars.
Lynn Wiens MD is a board-certified allergist and is the lead allergist in Allergy and Immunology at Warren Clinic, the largest private multispecialty clinic in Oklahoma with over 375 providers.
He’s a graduate of University of Kansas School of Medicine and did his residency and allergy fellowship at Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinic in Kansas City, MO
Dr Wiens and I talk about these topics and other aspects of allergy important to healthcare purchasers and benefit advisors — and allergy sufferers as well.
