Are you or a loved on suffering from asthma? If you do, you know that it can be very stressful and worrisome. Asthma is a common lung disease that causes episodes of wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness, usually starting in young children.
Dr. Frederick Shaffer, is our expert Immunologist and will help diagnose your asthma and create a personalized treatment plan for you and your family. Dr. Schaffer is board certified in asthma, allergy and immunology.
Alpha Care’s doctors will diagnose the extent of your asthma using physical tests, such as breathing or lung function tests. While diagnosing asthma in young children can be a challenge, our asthma and allergy experts can figure out whether a child’s wheezing is due to a respiratory infection, allergies, or asthma.
Asthma is a chronic condition with no cure but with proper treatment, sufferers can have little to no symptoms over time and enjoy normal activities. Asthma Treatment includes prescribing short-term and long-term medicines and avoiding certain asthma triggers.
