Q: I'm looking for the best asthma doctor specialist in my area. What should I be looking for in an asthma specialist? How can I make the right choice? My husband (69 yr) started this dry coughing. We went to see a lung specialist, but it's not helping much.
A: The best way to find a specialist is through your primary doctor's referral or by word of mouth. Check with your friends, family and acquaintances who may or may not have experience with lung issues, but possibly know someone who does. Also know that lung and asthma specialists are both pulmonologists and allergists. Please consider both types of doctors in your search and when discussing with others.
FYI- A dry cough can be due to an allergic or non-allergic cause. It can also be a symptom of acid reflux disease or be due to involvement of other organ systems.
