Chattanooga Allergy Clinic Celebrates New Headquarters With Ribbon Cutting, Prizes, And Food

Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Chattanooga Allergy Clinic celebrates the grand opening of its new headquarters, 6734 Lee Hwy., with a ribbon cutting on Wednesday starting at 3 p.m. The Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting this event.

“After a year of careful planning and construction, we are pleased to present our newly renovated and expanded headquarters to the community,” said Dr. Marc Cromie, Chattanooga Allergy Clinic CEO. “Our priority has always been our patients, and these changes will make it even easier to schedule a visit with us. We’ve expanded parking, doubled patient rooms and added more staff to meet the increased need for appointments in this area.”
 
The completed renovations result in a larger waiting area, an increase in patient exam rooms from nine to 18, a larger shot room, and additional administrative offices. Parking has more than doubled, as well. Out of its eight allergy practices, this new Lee Highway location is the largest CAC facility with 11,810 square feet.
 
This ribbon-cutting event is free and open to the public. The CAC’s physicians, Dr. Marc Cromie, Dr. Todd A. Levin, Dr. Lee M. Perry, Dr. Hyman Kaplan, and Dr. Jennifer Patel, will be in attendance to mingle with guests. There will be a live remote with radio host David Karnes from 3-6 p.m.

Guests will receive free pizza, Chick-fil-A, and salad. Guests may enter to win prizes, such as two tickets to Dollywood or a free allergy test.
