This 15 minute virtual encounter allows me to assess your current asthma disease status and launch a plan for getting and keeping your asthma in control!

  • HOW WE CONNECT:
    • I like to do the first visit using a video format such as FaceTime, Skype, or Zoom.
    • Subsequent online doctor visits with Established Patients can usually be completed by phone.
    • I will call your phone at the day and time of your appointment.
  • HAVE THESE THINGS READY:
    • A picture ID.
    • If you are taking a prescription asthma medication and need a refill, please text an image of the label, before your appointment to my cell: 720-900-0943.
    • Please have your preferred pharmacy in mind so I can electronically transmit your prescriptions.
  • NEW PATIENTS:
    • My goal for you is to arrive at a preliminary severity classification
    • I determine this by hearing about your past problems with asthma
    • Based on this classification, I’ll develop an Asthma Action Plan that is personalized for you.
      • I will email your this Asthma Action Plan for you to keep on your phone
      • My goal for you is to have this Plan at your fingertips!
    • I will electronically transmit the prescriptions in that plan to your preferred pharmacy
    • I will direct you to educational materials, especially:
      • Proper use of your inhaler - including use of the MDI spacer
      • How to use your Asthma Action Plan
      • Proper use of a Peak Flow Meter.
    • We will arrive at a follow-up day for your next appointment, usually in 3 months.
      • At that appointment, we will discuss your response to your Asthma Action Plan and adjust it as needed.
  • ESTABLISHED PATIENTS:
    • Our visits will answer the following questions:
      • Is your asthma in good control?
        • If not, we will determine why and adjust your Asthma Action Plan
      • If you are in good control, can we change the type, amount, or strength of any of your medicine?
        • The goal here:
          • Save you money on medicine
          • Protect you from side affects of too much medicine
          • Make sure you are getting the advantage of the most modern medicine
      • Does your Asthma Action Plan need adjusted?
      • What is the ‘right’ time for your next appointment?
  • Medication Cost:
    • If you are having difficulty paying for asthma medication, please let me know as many of the pharmaceutical companies offer special pricing and in some cases free medication.

Ok!  See you soon and stay safe!
