Allergy & Asthma Care
Asthma & Allergy Care
Did you know that it takes 3 months of treatment with an inhaled steroid to decrease chronic asthmatic inflammation? For our kids who suffer with asthma, we promote complete care compliance with routine follow up to ensure proper pulmonary function levels are obtained. Our mantra is that asthma is a disease, not a definition of life. We want our kids to function freely and enjoy the sports and leisure activities they choose.
Nurse Practitioner, Melissa Howe, specializes in Allergy and Asthma care. Having worked on a respiratory care floor at Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville for 7 years, Melissa helps our families learn ways to manage their children’s allergies and asthma on an ongoing basis. Long term, continuous treatment of asthma means patients can live the life they want, rather than one dictated by asthma.
