Our office has reopened for allergy shots on Mondays and Thursdays, from 9:00am-5:00pm BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, in order to limit the spread of COVID-19 and optimize social distancing. To make an appointment please call 415-433-6673 to speak to our scheduling team.
There has been a gap in your treatment, so we must adjust immunotherapy shot doses. Dr. Davidson will calculate this adjustment on an individualized basis. For patients looking to return to receiving allergy injections after the gap in your treatment, we request that you schedule a video visit with him before your next shot to discuss the necessary changes to your treatment and to address any questions. If you have already completed this step, there is no need to schedule another video visit.
The 30 minute wait period following your injection is still mandatory, but will be spent in a private exam room, not a shared waiting area.
Please follow these required precautions during your visits to protect yourself, our staff, and other patients:
As always, you may visit our website at http://www.sf-allergy.com for updates regarding our shot procedures. We will do our best to accommodate scheduling requests and appreciate your flexibility during this pandemic. We thank each one of you for your cooperation and commend your efforts to keep our community safe.

1. When will you re-open for allergy shots?
As of 6/22/20, we have reopened our office for allergy shots on Mondays and Thursdays from 9:00am to 5:00pm BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. If you are looking to return to receive your allergy injections after the gap in your treatment, you must schedule a video appointment with Dr. Davidson beforehand to discuss necessary changes to your treatment and to address any questions. Please see notice above.
2. What will happen to my allergy shot dose?
If it has been 2-6 weeks since your last allergy shot, we will repeat the last dose that you received.
If it has been more than 6 weeks since your last allergy shot, we will most likely have to decrease your dose. Dr. Davidson will determine your build-up back to maintenance on a case by case basis.
3. Will you open more days for allergy shots?
Yes, as the restrictions of the shelter in place are lifted, we anticipate opening more days of the week for allergy shots.
4. What if I want to discontinue allergy shots or place a temporary hold on them?
Please call our office to inform one of our medical assistants. If your allergy serum is expiring, we will not create any new serum until you provide us verbal authorization to do so.
5. How do I transfer my allergy shots to a different physician's office?
Our office can transfer your current allergy serum to another board certified allergist of your choice. Please note: we do not create any more serum once it has been transferred out. Your new allergist would have to determine the next steps after your current serum expires or runs out. Please contact our office for more information.
