Managing asthma is a well-established science built on decades of studies and tests endorsed by the National Health Institute and the American Academy of Pediatrics. With a variety of medications in the arsenal, a physician at East Lake Pediatrics will evaluate your child and establish which regiment will work best for their individual needs. We aim to find the proper balance, which minimizes the medications used while controlling symptoms and avoiding long-term damage or unwanted side effects. The result is a happy child that can have fun playing sports, running around with friends, and enjoying life no matter what the season.
It’s important that your child visit our office every three to six months so that our physicians can keep an eye on his/her progress. We will make adjustments to your child’s medicine regiment, as needed, throughout treatment. Any adjustments to your child’s treatment should be made when symptoms are mild, rather than waiting until things get more aggressive—this is why regular appointments are so important.
If you believe your child has asthma, have no fear. Simply give us a call at (727) 372–6760 and our physicians will help you find the best regiment for your child.
