I never feel rushed by them. I leave feeling like I have been listened to and given ample time to ask any questions I have about my child. I appreciate the organization and efficiency of the practice and the level of care we are receiving.

Thankfully, asthma can be easily treated so that your child can continue to have an active lifestyle. The best first treatment for asthma is to identify triggers and learn how to avoid them. One of the ways we can do this is through allergy testing. Next, we recommend medications, such as an inhaler to help with acute asthma symptoms, including wheezing, chronic cough, and tightness in the chest.
If asthma symptoms are persistent, we prescribe medication to prevent asthma exacerbations. Some children only need these medications for a few months each year, and others need treatment year around. In many children, we see asthma improve with age; though some may end up needing treatment lifelong.
