With a pediatrician and physician's assistant on staff, children who visit the center receive comprehensive treatment.

The center offers immediate access to the pediatric asthma team through a 24-hour telephone hotline--(718) 670-1920, as well as yoga and breathing instruction for patients and support groups for parents.
The Center offers a unique program of sophisticated testing, careful monitoring, continual care and a highly personalized course of protocol driven treatment by specialists in the care of asthma.
