To participate in this service, you must first meet with a SHS registered nurse (RN) for a consultation and your allergist must provide an initial referral at our clinic along with the antigens and injection instructions.

    Please do not send your antigens prior to meeting with the RN for a consultation.  We will not be able to accept the antigens until we receive a referral from your allergist and you have met with the the SHS RN. If you are interested in this service, please call for a consultative appointment with a RN at (310) 338-2881.
