The Center For Pediatric Excellence assists referring physicians in confirming a diagnosis of asthma for children with recurrent symptoms. We also treat children who have asthma that is difficult to control. Our team evaluates patients for factors that make asthma hard to control, develops an individualized asthma management plan including up-to-date pharmacologic therapy and environmental control, and educates patients and families to become asthma self-managers.
Dr. Johnson helps families learn more about what may be triggering asthma problems for their child and what thier goals are for asthma control. Our team works together with the family and any referring physician to create a tailored daily management and acute rescue plan to prevent asthma episodes. Each visit, we assess families’ self-management activity and skills and provide additional education.
