All About Asthma in Riverhead, NY At Peconic Pediatrics

Asthma Information

Having a child with asthma can be scary, but we can help you and your young one breathe easy. At Peconic, you will have access to a certified asthma educator Michelle Wruck PNP who works with children and parents to develop a customized treatment plan. Michelle will outline a kid-friendly plan, and is always available to answer your questions and address your concerns.

We instruct both parents and kids on how to best use an inhaler, identify asthma triggers and much more.
