Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition that causes inflammation in the lungs. Asthmatic patients experience respiratory issues due to a swollen bronchi. Common symptoms include coughing, shortness of breath, having a tight feeling in your chest, and wheezing. These symptoms can worsen when patients are in contact with allergens such as pollen or dust.
Although there is no cure for asthma, our experts at IM&PC are dedicated to creating a customized treatment plan to make this chronic condition more manageable.
Experts have yet to identify what causes asthma but medical researchers suggest a number of factors that contribute to the risk of developing this condition. Genetics and medical history are strong indicators of developing asthma; patients who have asthma likely inherited it from their asthmatic parents. Having allergies or suffering from respiratory infections are also drivers for developing asthma.
Our asthma specialists perform a series of diagnostics to determine whether your symptoms are a sign of asthma. This includes lung function tests such as a spirometry to measure how much air is moving in your lungs.
Our practice combines medication and lifestyle modifications to create positive impacts on our clients’ well-being. Adopting an exercise routine can help strengthen your lungs and improve respiration. Wearing masks during allergy season can help mitigate exposure to allergens such as pollen and dust.
Additionally, you may be prescribed specialized inhalers, on top of the typical inhaler medicine, to be used on an as-needed basis. Our treatment plans are customized to you or your child’s specific condition after taking your symptoms and your overall health into account.

I've been seeing Jennifer Barnes for years and she is an excellent nurse practioner. She is extremely committed and caring. I just visited this facility after discovering Jenny had joined this practice. That being said this is undoubtedly the best office ever! Everyone is friendly and courteous. The lab tech drew my blood on the first stick and that says alot in my case. The facility is large and very clean with spacious waiting areas. I'm so thankful Jenny has relocated her practice here

Great place with great providers. Highest quality care you can get. If they ever figure out how to treat a cough, they’ll get 5 stars.
