Patients' problems are assessed by a thorough history and physical exam by the physician. Diagnostic testing is tailored to the specific issues for each patient. An action plan is developed to restore the patient to good health, normal activity and normal family lifestyle. Patients are provided with a notebook containing information about the practice, education handouts, special instructions, pulmonary function testing results and the daily action plan. Patient/family education about their illness is reviewed at every visit. Emphasis is placed on communication between the patient, family and physician/office staff and primary care physician.
