Shreveport BreatheAmerica Hosting Open House for Local Leaders, Medical Community
November 12, 2013
Shreveport, LA 11/8/2013 – BreatheAmerica, a growing Nashville-based company that operates airway disease centers for allergy, asthma, and sinus patients, has launched their first mid-south location in Shreveport located at 463 Ashley Ridge Blvd. Local leaders and medical community members are invited to visit the new state-of-the-art facility on November 12 from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm. This serves as a great opportunity to learn more about this physician-led organization’s life-changing approach to respiratory healthcare that is helping people in Shreveport, Bossier City and around the country breathe easier.
Studies show 75 million Americans are affected by environmental, drug, food, or skin allergies, asthma, COPD, headache, cough, and other serious respiratory conditions. Shreveport residents among that number are likely to experience symptoms caused by the relatively mild winters, high humidity and dust mite count and a long list of other irritants.
Patients are too often prescribed an ever-changing variety of pills designed only to treat symptoms before first receiving a definitive diagnosis and treatment plan that takes a person’s total life into consideration.
“BreatheAmerica is dedicated to bringing better healthcare to these patients,” said Dr. Peter Boggs, medical director at the new center and Shreveport native. “Often in just one visit, we can explain to you the root cause of your symptoms, provide in-depth education and design a plan that is not only specific to you but also based on the latest medical treatment options and technology.”
A staff of some of the community’s best clinicians including faculty from LSU Health Shreveport Ear, Nose, and Throat Department, and the Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine Division, as well as a Willis-Knighton ENT group will serve as ongoing physicians to help patients regain control over their symptoms and life. BreatheAmerica utilizes a program that was developed at a leading academic medical center and refined in its centers around the country. The BreatheAmerica team is committed to giving each patient extensive time and attention to thoroughly address their symptoms and arrive at a diagnosis. The center collaborates with other primary care providers and specialists to ensure the coordination and integration of care.
“Respiratory patients deserve the very best solution to their symptoms, and that is what we are providing at BreatheAmerica,” said Boggs. “I look forward to seeing the Shreveport community at the event.”
