We give allergy shots to our established pediatric patients as part of their complete medical care.

After you have been prescribed desensitization by one of the allergists in the Nashville area, we can give your allergy shots in our office.  We give allergy shots on Monday afternoon, 1:30 to 3:45, on Wednesday, 9 am to 11 am and 1:30 to 3:45, and on Saturday morning, 9:00 to 10:45 on a walk-in basis. You can  contact your allergist to make arrangements.
