Q: How often should my child see the Pediatric Pulmonologist?
A: Following your initial visit for consulation it is important to be seen for routine follow up visits several times a year. This will usually coincide with the change of season, as that is when some pulmonary disorders can flare up.

More frequent visits may be necessary for acute respiratory illnesses that may occur througout the year.
