A healthcare provider will diagnose your asthma and create a plan for managing it. In addition to your doctor, your pharmacist plays a crucial role in your asthma care. Additionally, your respiratory therapist and Certified Respiratory Educator (CRE) may be part of your care team. You may also be referred to an allergist by your doctor if you have allergies or know what triggers your allergies.
If you have any problems or concerns regarding asthma control, talk to your healthcare provider honestly.
As a member of your healthcare team, your family doctor plays a vital role. Asthma specialists know not only how asthma affects you, but also your medical history and current health status.
When you are still experiencing problems with your asthma even though you are taking your medications as directed, when you have been admitted to the hospital for your asthma, or when you are experiencing side effects from your asthma medication, your family doctor may refer you to a specialist. Additionally, a specialist may be required if you suspect that your asthma is caused by the environment you work in or live in (occupational asthma); skin testing can help identify potential allergens.
You might be referred to an allergist if your asthma is associated with allergies. You may be referred to a Certified Respiratory Educator if you need help managing your asthma. You may need to see a respirologist if you have difficulty managing asthma.
Regardless of the course of action your doctor chooses, the outcome of your referrals will be monitored by them. Your doctor and you can then determine how well all of the elements of your asthma management are working by keeping “the big picture” in mind.
Asthma clinics are always accepting new patients by referral or appointment. Asthma is an extremely common condition that affects millions of Americans. There are 8.3% of Americans who suffer from asthma.
Of the 26.5 million with the condition, 20.4 million are adults and the other 6.1 million are children. Asthma patients report visiting 11 million doctors and 1.7 million hospitals for outpatient treatment, annually.
Asthma clinics have pulmonary medicine specialists who specialize in treating asthma and childhood asthma. Our medical professionals will listen to your concerns, assess your health, and provide you or your child with personalized optimal care options.
You or your child can go about daily activities without limitations if you keep your asthma under control.
Due to the fact that asthma can mimic or occur along with other conditions, it can be difficult to diagnose asthma. Asthma can also be divided into different types, each of which requires a different treatment. Choosing a doctor with experience in every aspect of this condition is crucial.
A pulmonologist (doctor specializing in pulmonary medicine) will ask you or your child questions about the signs and symptoms of breathing problems, as well as your personal and family history. Your doctor will then conduct a physical examination on you or your child and review the results with you. It might also be necessary to conduct further tests. Asthma action plans and lifestyle counseling are individualized based on these test results and the clinical evaluation.
