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.
