South Bay Allergists is a single specialty allergy, asthma, and clinical immunology group practice.
All four physicians in our practice are Board-certified by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology, and either American Board of Internal Medicine or American Board of Pediatrics. We see both children and adults with asthma, allergic and immunologic diseases.
We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of hay fever, asthma, sinus diseases, chronic cough, recurrent infections, hives, eczema, other skin allergies, food allergy, insect allergy, and pet allergy.
Serving a culturally diverse Bay Area, we are sensitive to different needs of each of our patient populations. Each of our doctors has special interests such as dermatologic contact allergies, saline nasal spray, food allergy, chronic sinusitis, nasal decongestant, aspirin sensitive asthma, and pollen and mold identification and counting. Dr. Xu speaks fluent Mandarin and Shanghainese, Dr. Zhang speaks fluent Mandrain, and we have staff members who speak Mandarin and Spanish.
If you have special concerns, please ask our friendly receptionists so that you may be seen by a doctor who closely matches your needs. Our office manager can also help with any difficult questions you may have.
We take most PPO’s and Medicare. We also see patients with HMO insurance through SCCIPA (Santa Clara County IPA) and PMG (Physicians Medical Group of San Jose). If you have HMO insurance, a referral from your primary care doctor is needed before your visit.
If you have called and made an appointment, Privacy and Registration forms are available on the “Patient Forms”. For your convenience, they can be downloaded and filled out prior to your visit.
We value our interaction with you from your very first call! You will be greeted by a friendly receptionist, who will do her best to help you and schedule your appointments. She will tell you about what drugs need to be withheld if skin testing is needed (for more information, click the “Skin Testing” tab above). She will also go over your insurance coverage with you. We try to avoid using answering machines except sometimes on the Chinese language line or on the billing line when specific persons are not available at the moment.
Since we have three offices, please inform the receptionist of the exact location you would like to visit. Allergy Shots and patient visits are given at all three offices. Patient visits are held every weekday at all locations.s
