Re: Must asthmatics see an allergist or a pulmonologist?
I would think that if you like your pcp best, & he/she is willing to treat your asthma, why not try letting them treat it & see how you do? Especially if you don't have really severe or difficult to control asthma. I see an allergist for mine, but my asthma is kind of atypical & was really hard to get under control for a long time. Also it is highly triggered by my allergies, & he treats those for me (I am now taking shots for the allergies). I have an excellent relationship with him, & know that I can get in to see him at the drop of hat when my asthma flares up. My pcp hasn't shown any indication of wanting to treat my asthma anyway, & I feel I have a better relationship with my allergist. I think that whoever works best with you would be the one to select.
