Now you can provide a complete allergy testing and immunotherapy service line.

Your patients no longer have to suffer from seasonal allergies and you don’t have to risk losing them by referring out to specialists. By offering this service line, physicians are able to provide a higher level of care to a large portion of their patient base, while generating a new revenue stream.

About United Allergy Services: • We hire and train a Certified Clinical Allergy Specialist to test, educate and custom build immunotherapy under the supervision of the on-site physician. • Provide all supplies and materials related to the service line.

• Focus efforts on patient safety, patient compliance and patient outcomes. • Allow you to treat allergy patients rather than cover their symptoms with medications.

“The allergy testing and treatment process has been simple, safe and effective, and the clinical improvement and response from our patients has been positive. Our allergy testing and immunotherapy has also generated healthy reimbursements and a new revenue stream for the practice.” - Bernice Gonzalez, M.D., Vital Life Wellness Center, San Antonio, TX

Things to do in Austin Surrounded by Central Texas’ rolling hills with Lady Bird Lake running through the city, Austin is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Enjoy a scenic stroll or cycle along the Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail, covering more than 10 miles. Try water activities on the lake by renting a kayak or paddle board. Picnic at Zilker Park and swim at Barton Springs Pool, and stay to watch the free Zilker Summer Musical production of the Sound of Music in the evening. Observe city-meets-nature as Austin’s resident bats fly from under the Congress Street Bridge at dusk. Many Austin attractions are minutes from the hotel including the Texas State Capitol Building, the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, the Blanton Museum, the Austin Children’s Museum, South Congress shopping, and the up-and-coming 2nd Street District. Questions? Ask the concierge or stop in to the Austin Convention and Visitors Bureau, located at 301 Congress Avenue, Ste. 200. Or call 800-926-2282 or go to www. austintexas.org.

Navigating downtown Unlike the rest of the city, it’s easy to get around downtown! It’s set up as a grid with numbered streets starting at Cesar Chavez/1st Street, parallel to Lady Bird Lake, increasing numerically as you travel north. As a frame of reference, the Texas Capitol sits between 11th and 15th, and forms a T with Congress Avenue, dividing the downtown east-west streets. The east-west streets are named for the Texas rivers from south to north, so if you know your Texas geography, you can start at Rio Grande Street west of downtown and work your way east past Nueces, San Antonio, Lavaca, Colorado, Brazos, San Jacinto, Trinity, and Neches to Red River Street. If you need to venture farther from the hotel, cabs are available at the entrance of the hotel. To return, call Austin Cab Company at (512) 478-2222 (credit cards accepted and preferred) or Yellow Cab Austin at (512) 452-9999.

Work in a work out There’s no reason to take a break from your normal exercise regimen; Annual Session attendees have several options to get in a workout while in Austin. The Hilton Austin’s Tower Health Club and Spa features a 16,000 sq. ft. facility including a cardio fitness room, health club and spa, outdoor pool and hot tub, and strength training room. Access the Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail from Congress Street, just a little more than a half-mile from the Hilton Austin. Below are the approximate roundtrip trail distances from Congress Street Bridge, traveling west (away from Interstate 35):

United Allergy Services................................... 328

To South 1st Bridge – 1.08 miles To Pfluger Bridge – 1.96 miles To MoPac Bridge – 4.94 miles
