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.
Our patients with asthma are closely monitored. We will see your child in the office every 6 months at a minimum – At their well child exam, and again six months later. During your visit, your child may undergo pulmonary function testing and you may 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.
