John Edsall-John Wood Asthma Center
The John Edsall-John Wood Asthma Center provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art care to adults with asthma. We recognize that each patient responds to asthma and treatments differently. Our pulmonologists work to create an individualized treatment plan focused on improving a patient's everyday quality of life.
Our pulmonologists will provide a complete evaluation to help you manage your asthma. We will discuss your symptoms, review your complete health history, conduct a physical exam, and perform tests on site to determine the best treatment options. Our team will review your home and work environment to determine which indoor and outdoor allergens might be triggering symptoms.
Patients are taught early warning signs of asthma, triggers, environmental control measures, medications, and the correct use of inhalers. Spacers and peak flow meters are provided for home use. All patients have access to consultants, such as:
- Exercise physiologists
- ENT physicians
- Respiratory therapists
- Visiting nurses
- Social workers
The center will coordinate care with your referring physician and provide a written summary with treatment recommendations for each patient visit at the Asthma Center.
