How to Access Allergy & Asthma Services
- New Students/Patients: If you have asthma or chronic allergies, we encourage you to make an appointment with a CSU Health Network primary care provider when you begin your studies at CSU. Your primary care provider, in conjunction with your allergist and the CSU Health Network allergy nurses, can assist you with management of your condition, medication refills, and prescription assistance (if you qualify).
- Allergy Injections:
- We encourage you to make an appointment for your allergy injections. Appointments can be scheduled for the entire semester, and you will receive an email reminder prior to each visit. Appointments can be scheduled in person or over the phone.
- Patients who walk in without an appointment may have to wait longer. Priority is given to students who have an appointment.
