About Us 

Mount Sinai serves many communities in the tri-state area and beyond, including areas close to our hospital, which have one of the highest rates of asthma in the nation. Our specialists are striving through patient care, community outreach and research programs to reduce these rates. 

To achieve this, we have formed a team of health care specialists who have joined together because of their dedication to asthma management. These clinical alliances enable us to offer a unique program that treats all aspects of the disease, including:

  • Consultation with pulmonary specialist
  • Evaluation by allergy specialist
  • Environmental assessment
  • Advanced diagnostic testing
  • Educational skill set
  • Personalized self-management strategy
  • Referral to on-site gastroenterologist, otolaryngologist, occupational and environmental specialist, psychiatrist, nutritionist, exercise specialist or social worker as needed 

In addition, the Asthma Program collaborates with the Mount Sinai World Trade Center Worker and Volunteer Medical Screening Program to treat asthma in individuals who worked or volunteered at Ground Zero and other sites.
