Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Allergies are the result of an over-sensitive immune system and may be a major trigger of respiratory illness. Symptoms include sneezing, nasal congestion, runny nose, wheezing, cough and difficulty breathing.

Patients who suspect their respiratory distress is the result of an allergen can turn to the Atlantic Respiratory Institute for expert diagnosis and treatment. Our pulmonologists may perform blood tests and pulmonary function tests, or spirometry, to determine which specific allergen is causing the symptoms. Depending on results, they may prescribe medications, such as antihistamines or nasal steroids, as well as lifestyle changes to prevent flare ups and improve quality of life.
