For Physicians

The Ernest N. Morial Asthma, Allergy & Respiratory Disease Center at LSU Medical Center is a comprehensive resource for the physician. Realizing that the needs of each patient and physician are different, programs for the education and management of asthmatics are tailored to meet individual needs.

Services include physician education and telephone consultations.

Physicians can refer patients for any of the following services:

  • Evaluation by a qualified specialist, focused on individual patient needs. At the completion of the evaluation, a letter outlining the assessment and disease management plan will be forwarded to the referring physician to assist him in the continued management of his patient.
  • Extensive patient education and self management program.
  • Psychosocial evaluation.
  • Case management services utilizing a visiting nurse and/or social worker for patients who continue to have problems after completing the program.
