Service Description

Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are two common lung disorders that can significantly affect a person's breathing and daily life. These conditions are prevalent in both men and women, and seniors may be at a higher risk of developing them due to age-related changes in the respiratory system. However, with proper assessment, medication, and education, patients can manage their symptoms, improve their quality of life, and prevent exacerbations. At IWC Primary Care, our providers take a comprehensive approach to treating asthma and COPD. We understand that each patient is unique, and their condition may have various underlying factors that can exacerbate their symptoms. Therefore, we assess the patient's medical history, respiratory function, and lifestyle to determine the cause of their lung disorder and provide personalized treatment and care. We also prioritize patient education related to their medications and lifestyle changes they can make to prevent exacerbations and maintain good lung health. We encourage patients to learn how to use their inhalers properly and track their symptoms to identify triggers and early signs of worsening. Our providers also advise patients to quit smoking, avoid exposure to allergens and pollutants, exercise regularly, and maintain a healthy weight to improve their respiratory function. In some cases, our providers may refer patients to specialists, such as pulmonologists or allergists, for further evaluation and treatment. These specialists can provide more advanced diagnostic tests, such as bronchoscopy or allergy testing, and offer specialized treatments, such as immunotherapy or oxygen therapy, if needed. Living with asthma or COPD can be challenging, but with the right assessment, medication, and education, patients can manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life. At IWC Primary Care, our providers take a personalized approach to treating lung disorders and work with patients to identify the underlying causes and develop a comprehensive treatment plan. If you are experiencing breathing difficulties or suspect you may have asthma or COPD, book an appointment with us today to take back control of your lung health.
