Getting asthma under control
Managing asthma isn’t always as simple as using an inhaler. The skilled doctors, nurses and support staff at Tufts Medical Center’s Asthma Clinic in downtown Boston understand the challenges that this condition can present.
That’s why we specialize in helping patients with difficult-to-treat asthma, such as those with resistant asthma, steroid-dependent asthma, steroid-resistant asthma, environmental and occupational asthma and exercise-induced asthma.
Our state-of-the-art clinic offers the full array of treatments, including cutting-edge therapies like Xolair, which aren’t always available elsewhere. But treatment is just one aspect of care: We also provide education and support, so that you can learn how to better manage your asthma on your own.
Teaming up for better care
Asthma affects everyone differently. In fact, you might also be coping with gastro-esophageal reflux (GERD), sinusitis, vocal cord dysfunction, atopy or another related condition. Led by Amy Simon, MD, our clinic staff works with a multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other experts to evaluate your individual case. And we’ll partner with you and your primary care physician to develop an optimal treatment plan just for you.
