WHAT IS ASTHMA?
Breathing is something we are supposed to do consistently and easily. However, this is not always the case for every person. As one of the most common chronic conditions that impact children and adults alike, asthma is a disease that affects the lungs and causes the airways to become inflamed. Asthma can be accompanied by a cough, wheeze, and tightness felt in the chest, all of which can drastically get in the way of healthy physical activity, playing sports, household chores, and living life to the fullest. Thankfully, our experienced physicians and providers at Health Services of North Texas (HSNT) can offer patients a range of customized treatment plans to address the signs and symptoms of asthma and make breathing without a struggle a normal part of everyday life.

"I don't recommend. Brittney has made me feel invalidated since I started going there, so I skipped my apts with her. Some of the rooms are dirty, and alot if the staff is rude. My first time there the ladies at the front desk were speaking amongst eachother in Spanish instead of handing me my paperwork. Often time the on call nurses are extremely rude. I just spoke to one about a concern of mine, and she told me "I was just about to go to bed, and you called." That's extremely unprofessional. The only person there that was worth seeing was Dr. Assis, I'm not sure how to spell his name. Save yourself the time here."- K.W. / Google / May 10, 2021

"Amazing staff. All the nurses are really nice and very professional. One of the nurses who drew blood from my two-year-old did it so fast that by the time he noticed she was already done. And the doctor I saw was very knowledgeable and able to answer questions that had stumped other doctors that I had been to."- P.M. / Google / May 08, 2021
SYMPTOMS of Asthma
Some of the most common signs of asthma include:
- A tight feeling concentrated in the chest area
- Persistent coughing, especially in the mornings or at night
- Shortness of breath
To find out for sure if you or your child have asthma, we will perform a physical evaluation that includes listening to the lungs for overwork or activity. We will also ask a comprehensive series of questions about any symptoms you may have noticed. If asthma is diagnosed, our team will work with you or your family to determine the best solutions for management.
