66% lung capacity

My son is 11yrs old. He has allergy induced asthma, he has never had an attack. I can't even hear him wheeze. He has bad allerigies, but has no symptoms. His peek flow is a constant 220, it should be much higher. We took a breathing test at the allergist and that is how we found out his capacity. He had a lung x-ray and everything was normal. The Dr wants him to use serevent, he is already on singular,which doesn't do a thing. Do you think he should see a pulmanary(sp) Doctor or stick with the allergist Dr.?

p.s. To the mods. I wasn't sure to post this. Please feel free to move it
