Asthma Management

Meet with our Certified Asthma Educator

We are excited to announce a new program that is being offered at the Herndon office to better provide care for our patients with asthma, age 2 years and older. This program is dedicated to improve asthma care and outcomes for children through the use of office spirometry (ages 6 years and older), in depth trigger assessment, and medication review.  Clinic visits will be with our certified asthma educator, Marina McBee, CPNP, who will offer a detailed asthma medication consultation, school form completion, and a customized asthma care plan for your child.  Call 703-860-4200 to schedule an appointment today!
