What are the signs of asthma? 

Children with asthma may present with a range of symptoms and not every person has the same set of symptoms. These symptoms may also be different from one asthma attack to another. Some common asthma symptoms to look out for, however, are coughing at night, shortness of breath, wheezing and chest pain. 

What should I bring with me to an office appointment? 

When you come for your appointment, please bring your child’s medical records, a list of his or her current medications, lab results and any imaging studies, if applicable, which should be placed on a CD or other electronic storage device. Please bring your original studies with you and photographs of your child’s rashes, if possible. 

When should I call the doctor if I suspect an allergy? 

You should contact your doctor if you see a rash on your child or if he or she has chronic infections, such as sinusitis. 

How often do we need to see you? 

Your treatment schedule will depend upon your child’s type of condition. Your doctor will work with you to set up a schedule that fits your schedule and your child’s specific health care needs. 

Can my child play sports and participate in the things they love to do? 

Our goal is to see your child enjoy life. We will do everything possible to get your child back to doing his or her favorite things. Certain conditions and treatments may, however, limit your child’s ability to participate in some sports and other physical activities. Your doctor will provide you with this guidance in detail during your child’s period of care.
