The experts at the Ohio State Asthma Center are committed to helping you maintain normal activity levels while taking only as much medication as you need to effectively manage your asthma. Our physicians are board certified and have special training in the care and management of asthma. Our treatments are based on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Asthma Treatment Guidelines, ensuring that you receive the most up-to-date treatment options available.

We’ll assess your symptoms and medicine use at each visit and adjust your treatment plan as needed. Our certified asthma educators develop a personalized asthma action plan for you to follow at home. You’ll learn how to manage your asthma and what to do if it gets worse. Our team will communicate their findings and send a copy of your personalized asthma treatment plan to your primary care physician..
