About Asthma and Allergy Care at USA Health

Have you ever wondered why some physicians and healthcare providers focus on treating patients with both allergy and asthma conditions? It’s typically because allergies and asthma often occur together.

The same substances that can trigger hay fever symptoms -- such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites and grass -- may also cause asthma signs and symptoms. In some children and adults, skin or food allergies can also cause asthma symptoms. This condition is called allergic asthma or allergy-induced asthma.

Asthma, one of America’s most common diseases, is a chronic condition that causes inflammation and narrowing of the airways. Symptoms include coughing, shortness of breath and chest tightness. For some, the disease can also be deadly.

One in 13 people in the United States has asthma, some 25 million Americans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Those figures mean 7.7 percent of adults and 8.4 percent of children have been diagnosed with asthma, a disease that has been on the rise since the early 1980s across all age groups.

Through a series of tests, our fellowship-trained physicians can determine if a patient has asthma. While there is no cure for asthma, our healthcare providers will work with you to determine the best course of treatment to effectively manage your condition.

For those with allergy symptoms not related to asthma, our physicians will work with you to develop a comprehensive care plan to best meet your healthcare needs.
