Chattanooga Allergy Clinic Extends Shot Hours Downtown

Monday, November 13, 2017
Chattanooga Allergy Clinic’s downtown location, at 325 Market Street, has expanded its Wednesday hours and will now offer allergy shots from 8 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. to increase access and convenience for patients.

The downtown location recently expanded its square footage and increased the number of exam rooms.
As demand continues to rise from those that live and work downtown, there was a need to also accommodate patients by offering extended hours.   

“As many of our patients find permanent relief from common allergies through allergy shots and tell others their success stories, the demand continues to grow,” said Dr. Marc Cromie. “Extending hours helps our patients have more access to care, and that means fewer missed appointments and faster overall results from the treatment.”

Chattanooga Allergy Clinic’s extended hours are Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. Hours will remain the unchanged the rest of the week; the office is open Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Shot hours on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays are 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and Fridays are from 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
