The center is staffed by 2 Pulmonologists, an Allergist, an asthma nurse coordinator, and a Pulmonary Function Technician trained in asthma education. Physicians from Otolaryngology and Gastroenterology also participate in the multidisciplinary approach to patients and, when needed, see patients in the Center.
Particularly appropriate referrals to YCAAD include patients with difficult-to-control asthma, chronic cough, those who are diagnostic dilemmas, and those who may be significantly affected by co-morbid illnesses such as gastroesophageal reflux, sinusitis, vocal-cord dysfunction, and atopy. Physicians at the program develop individualized care plans for all patients, with the goal of forming a working partnership with the referring primary care provider.
