We’re proud to support National Asthma & Allergy Awareness Month throughout the month of May 2023.  As allergy & asthma specialists this awareness month is near & dear to our hearts. We celebrate this every month & every day striving to raise awareness & care for patients living with asthma & allergies. We work to empower our patients by giving them the tools they need to live their best lives.

Check back with us daily on Facebook & Instagram, though out the month of May as we celebrate & join in the challenge to spread awareness.

Patients with asthma reported 11 million visits to a doctor’s office & 1.7 million visits to hospital outpatient departments. Asthma is the most common chronic illness in childhood, accounting for 13.8 million missed school days each year. (from the CDC & ACAAI.) Working with a physician to get asthma controlled is imperative for both adults & children.
