One more question: what do your care teams look like? I’m curious if anyone uses an allergist/immunologist to care for both your asthma & allergies, or do we all have pulmonologists too?
Previously I had an allergist and a primary care doc for the mild asthma. Now it looks like I’m building a baseball team!
My thought was keep my pulmonologists in Denver, but pair them with someone local to be their eyes/ears. I’m not sure if the local asthma person should be a pulmonology midlevel or my new allergist/immunologist MD that I really like?
I don’t have an appointment to meet the local pulmo midlevel provider until May. Makes me sad. There are only 2 local pulmonologists, 1 is leaving and the other is way over worked! I was in the hospital in February … and this May appointment is the soonest the local guys could get me in! The world needs more lung docs!
thanks for reading!
