Asthma is a chronic, lifelong disease that affects health and well-being. It prevents individuals from enjoying activities such as sports, exercise, shopping and even sleeping.

That's why the Asthma Management Program at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas is designed specifically to help affected individuals gain the knowledge and skills needed to help manage asthma symptoms. As part of the program, you will receive one-on-one education and training on the aspects of asthma, including:

  • Understanding asthma
  • Recognizing its signs and symptoms
  • Learning about triggers and avoidance of allergens
  • Controlling asthma episodes
  • Monitoring asthma and medication used to control symptoms

Entry into the program requires a written referral from your physician. If you do not have a physician, the staff can help you locate one who can provide a referral, or you can Find a Physician online. Most forms of insurance, including Medicaid and Medicare, are accepted. To contact the asthma clinic, please call 214-345-6367.

During your first appointment, a self-management plan will be developed to help you monitor your asthma symptoms, take your medications as prescribed by your physician, and attempt to control asthma episodes.

It is very important that you follow your management plan, as it will be reviewed during follow-up visits to help the staff make adjustments. Follow-up visits will take place as needed, and you will be contacted by telephone to monitor your progress.

The asthma management program is on the fifth floor of the main hospital building. Appointments can be scheduled through your physician's office at 214-345-6367. The office is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Evening and weekend appointments can be made.
