Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Howland "I feel it is important for patients to understand their options for testing and treatment and involve them in decision making. My staff and I are empathetic, caring and professional. We use a state of the art lung function testing machine and can also test for a gas released in breath that can indicate the degree of airway inflammation (irritation).  We use very accurate skin or blood testing for sensitivity to inhalants (pollens, pets, molds, dust mites), foods and stinging insects.  We administer standard allergy injections as well as the newest biological, injections for asthma (Xolair and Nucala), chronic hives (Xolair), and eczema (Dupixent).  We also evaluate patients with chronic cough, which can be a complicated and frustrating problem.  We respect patient's time and try to respond to phone questions promptly. We try to treat our patients the way we would want to be treated in our own doctors' offices. "
