The University of Pittsburgh Asthma Institute at UPMC, includes specialists who are board-certified in the fields of pulmonary medicine, critical care medicine, and allergic disorders of the lung.

In addition to providing care for your illness, staff take an active part in asthma education and the training of new physicians.

Personalized Care

During the diagnosis of asthma, there could be different types of clinicians that you should you see, along with the different kinds of tests used to diagnose asthma. The staff will need to know your symptoms and your medical history.
 
There are other respiratory illnesses that have similar symptoms to asthma, so it is important that your clinician have all the information necessary to make an accurate diagnosis and prescribe the most effective treatment.
