Asthma is a chronic disease of the lungs that narrows and inflames the airways, making it difficult to breathe. This condition affects individuals of all ages, but most often begins in childhood. Because asthma can have a number of different causes and may be confused with other conditions that affect the airways, the first step to improving your symptoms is receiving an accurate diagnosis.
At Columbia Asthma & Allergy Clinic, we specialize in the treatment of allergy and asthma-related conditions.
There are no active trials at this time. Please check back at a later date, or call the office to have your information added to a waiting list.
