The threat of the Enterovirus D68 is affecting our children, especially those with asthma. The doctors & staff at the CENTER FOR ALLERGY AND ASTHMA OF GEORGIA (CA&A) provide complete allergy and asthma consultations, treatment & management for adults and children. Drs. Eugene Hurwitz, John Vickery & William Boleman are Board Certified Allergists and their proactive approach includes individualized treatment. Children with asthma may be particularly susceptible to more severe enterovirus infections so the Center’s doctors advise parents to make a visit to their office to be sure their child’s asthma is well controlled this fall and winter. If children get asthma flares, they can be seen at the Center on the day they call and will be monitored closely in an effort to reduce the severity of the illness.

Signs that you or your child might need to see CA&A can include rashes, skin irritations, reoccurring sinus infections, persistent runny nose or congestion, or a chronic cough or wheeze. The doctors have had much success in the non-surgical treatment of sinusitis, as well as preventive care for allergies and asthma. Offices in Smyrna, Villa Rica, Peachtree City, Douglasville, Carrollton, Hiram & Newnan.
