If you have been suffering with asthma, you are not alone. More than 20 million Americans live with this serious respiratory disease. Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer with uncontrolled asthma – help is available. Ulrike Ziegner, MD, PhD, has been successfully treating people with this condition for over 13 years. She offers state-of-the-art testing and the latest, most effective asthma treatments as they become available.
Complete diagnostic testing & treatment
At Riviera Allergy Medical Center, the focus is on finding the cause of your condition, not just treating symptoms. Treatment of your asthma begins with comprehensive diagnostic testing. That testing typically includes pulmonary function tests to evaluate the severity of your breathing problem and to track the progress of your treatment. It will also include allergy testing to identify allergic triggers of your asthma. Dr. Ziegner provides patients with access to the newest asthma treatments, including:
Allergen immunotherapy – A treatment aimed at decreasing your sensitivity and reactions to allergens that may trigger asthma attacks. Immunotherapy – in the form of allergy shots – can lead to long-lasting relief of allergy symptoms during and even after treatment is completed and may help prevent the development of new allergies.
New drug therapies – A new injectable drug called Xolair® helps provide relief to people who suffer from allergic asthma attacks. The medication is injected just under the skin and helps block allergic reactions, which can prevent asthma attacks. There are also many other prescription drugs that reduce inflammation in the lungs and keep airways open.
Asthma action plan – Dr. Ziegner and her team will educate you about asthma, teaching you how to avoid triggers and how to recognize and respond to the earliest signs of an asthma attack.
