Valley's Center for Asthma and Immune Lung Diseases specializes in the evaluation and treatment of patients with asthma, sarcoidosis, pulmonary fibrosis and immune deficiency disorders. Our goal is to better understand the causes of inflammation and the types of inflammation resulting in allergic and immune-related respiratory diseases, and to treat these conditions appropriately.
Our staff has more than 25 years of experience in evaluating the respiratory tract from an allergic, pulmonary and immunological perspective.
The clinical team employs a host of modalities to determine the type of inflammation driving a patient’s symptoms, including:
- Sputum microscopy
- Serum biomarkers
- Exhaled nitric oxide
- Complete pulmonary function tests
- Allergy testing and evaluation
