Asthma & Airways Disease Program
Our asthma and airway disease experts offer comprehensive, multidisciplinary treatment for a broad spectrum of conditions including:
- Treatment-resistant asthma
- Steroid-dependent asthma
- Steroid-resistant asthma
- Environmental and occupational asthma
- Exercise-induced asthma
We frequently take care of patients with chronic cough, asthma that is difficult to control, as well as those whose condition is difficult to diagnose and who may be significantly affected by such co-occurring illnesses as gastroesophageal reflux, sinusitis, or vocal-cord dysfunction. We develop individualized care plans for all patients, with the goal of forming a working partnership with the referring primary care provider.
Our skilled group includes three pulmonologists, one physician assistant, asthma nurse coordinators, and pulmonary function technicians trained in asthma education. We work closely with our colleagues in allergy and immunology, otolaryngology, gastroenterology and occupational and environmental medicine to coordinate an efficient and comprehensive process of evaluation for patients with complicated asthma. In conjunction with occupational and environmental medicine specialists, we may perform workplace or home environmental evaluations.
