Doctors offering this service:
Asthma is a chronic inflammation of the lung airways that causes coughing, chest tightness, wheezing or shortness of breath.
1 in 9 Australians are affected by asthma. If you are using a blue asthma reliever more than two times a week it could be a sign that your asthma is not under control.
The Woods Medical Centre can provide a consultation on how to manage your asthma and individualised care plans for those with asthma or any chronic disease.
Our doctors can prepare a specific review of your asthma medications and together you set goals and action plans to help you achieve the best quality of life.
If you are eligible for an Asthma Care Plan you may also be able to access medicare benefits that will reduce the cost of allied health visits (e.g. physiotherapy).
