The First Visit
During your child’s first visit, Dr. Kanengiser and his team will spend about one hour taking a detailed medical history, discussing all previous treatments and respiratory events.
What to Bring
Please bring any previous x-rays, and all relevant testing results, as well as a list of previous medications.
What To Expect
Dr. Kanengiser may recommend a number of diagnostic tests, many of which can be performed in his office in the Kireker Center for Child Development, at The Valley Hospital, or at other locations. Your child’s evaluation might include:
age-appropriate pulmonary function testing, including spirometry or impulse oscillometry
methacholine provocation testing
other laboratory tests
Dr. Kanengiser may also recommend a consultation with a pediatric allergist or other specialist depending on your child’s symptoms or medical history.
