An asthma clinic can be an integral part of your asthma care team, forming a vital piece of the support you’ll need to manage your asthma over time.

Asthma is serious and impacts more than 25 million Americans, including millions of young children. It can be caused and triggered by many factors, which can be confusing and distressing for the person experiencing it. The allergist at Piniella Asthma + Allergy can help you find out and understand your own asthma triggers, and work with you to determine the best treatment. If you’re the parent of a child with asthma, an asthma clinic can be an important source of ongoing information and support for your child’s condition.
Allergies require specific diagnosis, treatment, information and care. The allergists at the Piniella Asthma + Allergy clinic have all the right training and diagnostic tools on hand to assess, diagnose and treat your allergies, and can provide the right information and support as you work to manage your allergies throughout your lifetime.
Regardless of when they onset, allergies usually stay with us for a period of time, sometimes for years, and in many cases, they are lifelong. However, as things like environmental factors, lifestyle, and your stage of life change, your allergies may also change or require different interventions and management. This is why having a rapport with an allergy clinic can be necessary and helpful, as you’ll have an allergist who knows your history, and can monitor your allergies as you move through life, ensuring you are able to consistently manage them in the way that works best for you.
Asthma and allergies can be serious and in some cases, life-threatening, so seeing a doctor or allergist should not be put off or avoided. If you have a severe allergic reaction or an asthma attack that requires immediate medical attention or hospitalization, it’s important that you then follow up with your primary care provider and an allergy and asthma specialist, so you can have your situation assessed and begin the necessary treatment and management. Even if your allergy or asthma symptoms are mild, or you suspect you may have allergies or asthma but aren’t sure, you should see a physician. Some allergies, such as hay fever, can lead to a sinus infection because of nasal congestion, which requires antibiotics to resolve. In that case, you should see a physician to have the infection treated, and to learn strategies on how to prevent such complications.
You can reach out to your primary care provider, who can provide a referral to an allergy and asthma specialist. Or, at Piniella Asthma + Allergy, you can book a no-obligation consultation directly.
The frequency with which you see your asthma and allergy doctor will depend on the various factors in your situation, such as the severity of your allergies or asthma, your treatment plan, and the recommendations of your allergist. While there are no limitations to how often you should be tested for allergies, even if you’ve already been diagnosed, most people will receive allergy testing every 1-2 years. The frequency of that will also depend on the advice of your specialist. If there are any changes in your allergies and asthma, like the severity or the effectiveness of your treatment, it’s important to see your specialist have them reassess your situation and plan.
