To better meet the needs of our patients with asthma, and to better manage each individual's asthma, Wayzata Children's Clinic has developed an Asthma Service Line.
Our service line is based on the most current research about asthma and the most current national asthma guidelines to promote the optimal health of our patients. Our Asthma management will help to maximize each patient's potential lung functioning and minimize exacerbations and the need for rescue medications.
