Wake Forest Pediatric Associates is committed to providing exceptional care to our pediatric patients that are diagnosed with asthma. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), “asthma is the most common serious chronic disease of childhood”. Our goal is to eliminate or decrease symptoms so children can participate in regular physical activities.

Our office is recognized nationally as an NCQA Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home with Asthma being our primary “Clinically Important Condition”. Our providers follow the NIH (National Institutes of Health) guidelines for asthma management. We recognize the importance of educating the patient and family members on symptoms, triggers, medications, and the home-management of asthma.

We recommend that your child have an “Asthma Check” every 6 months (or more often as indicated). This visit will include a Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) for children age 5 years and older as determined by the provider. At this visit you will be asked a series of questions regarding your child’s asthma symptoms and response to treatment. Your child’s “Asthma Action Plan” will be completed/updated, and you will be given a copy for home and school.

We also highly recommend annual flu vaccines for all of our patients- especially those diagnosed with asthma.

With the appropriate treatment and preventative measures, children with asthma can lead active and healthy lives! We look forward to partnering with you in the care of your child!
