I chose to specialize in Allergy and Immunology because the symptoms associated with allergic disease can severely impact a patient’s quality of life. I take great joy in diagnosing, educating, and helping patients of all ages enjoy life again. I also find the intricacies of the immune system to be fascinating. I practice with a focus on patient-centered care, addressing my patients’ concerns and improving their health and well-being.
ARC has adjusted allergy shot frequency and clinic schedules to allow for greater time between shots and social distancing in our lobby areas where patients must wait for 30 minutes after their shot.
This safety precaution results in less open slots per day. Your allergist will notify you about your new schedule. We appreciate your understanding as we continue to balance patient care and safety.
When she is not at work, Dr. Adkins enjoys cooking and trying new recipes. When the weather is nice, she loves spending time outdoors, swimming, playing tennis and golf. Most of all, Dr. Adkins enjoys being with her husband and two children. As new Austin residents, she and her family are enjoying exploring all that Austin has to offer, including delicious Tex-Mex and barbeque.
