Patient Information

DeMera Allergy Asthma & Immunology Center | Fresno & Visalia, California

Welcome to DeMera Allergy Asthma & Immunology Center! We are delighted that you are giving us this opportunity to take care of you and/or your loved ones! We hope you find that we strive to give the utmost attention to our patient care and customer service.

If you are scheduled to see Dr. DeMera, you will be attended by a board-certified internist/allergist who will conduct a thorough examination and discuss your medical history with you. After assessing your current condition and reviewing your past medical history, Dr. DeMera will advise you of any future testing or imaging you may need. When all pieces of information are gathered, a customized treatment plan is put into action. Please be ready to experience your next allergy/asthma season DIFFERENTLY!

If you are scheduled to see Dr. Sherman, you will be attended by a board-certified otolaryngologist and sleep specialist who will help you define your specific problem, review your past medical history, and conduct a thorough and complete ear, nose and throat examination. All of Dr. Sherman’s patients will be seen exclusively at the Fresno location. Simple procedures such as microscopic ear cleaning or endoscopic evaluation of the vocal cords will be carried out in the clinic. Dr. Sherman may propose additional testing, imaging, or specialist referrals as indicated, and will fully explain the rationale behind such actions. Because of the reduced clinic time Dr. Sherman maintains, those patients who do see him will experience the personal, hands-on style his practice is well-known for.

*For your first visit with Dr. Richard S. DeMera M.D., we ask that new patients refrain from taking antihistamines 4 days prior to the first appointment.

**Because this is a “new” practice, all of Dr. Sherman’s patients must be scheduled and treated as if “new” — whether they are truly new or actually old/returning patients from his previous practice. Be mindful of insurance billing as a new consultation, and have all old records forwarded to DeMera Allergy Asthma & Immunology Center. Regrettably, space is limited and the practice will unfortunately not accommodate all patients and all schedules, regardless of past professional relationships. Your patience and understanding in this manner is greatly appreciated.

***All our forms are now accessible online. We invite you to print and fill out these forms in their entirety. A copy or the insurance card itself, if applicable, is always encouraged so we can compile as much detailed information as we can. A list of any and all current medications, along with their dosing, is very helpful.

****If you have any questions feel free to call the office with any of your concerns or questions.
