We are using developmental screens in our office at many checkups to make sure we don’t miss any subtle problems. Our office has a special developmental nurse, Janice Genova, who can, when needed, perform more in-depth screens of preschool age children to better define their strengths and weaknesses.
Asthma affects one in ten children and is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood. As a practice, we are committed to helping you and your child control their asthma symptoms so that they can have a normal and active lifestyle. Asthma Clinics are offered monthly by Brenda Poirier, PNP in our Cary, Apex and Fuquay offices.
During your visit, you and your child will meet with one of our experienced asthma nurses. He or she will undergo pulmonary function testing and you will be asked to complete an Asthma Control Test. These tools help us understand how well your child’s asthma is controlled.
Your child will also have an examination and we will review his/her symptoms and medication use.
Clinical advice is available 24/7 by calling the office during regular hours or after hours with our triage service or physician on call.
