Influenza (The Flu)
The doctors and nurses at AA&PA are carefully monitoring issues concerning seasonal flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends:
There are everyday actions people can take to stay healthy.
|Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw
the tissue in the trash after you use it.
||Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or
sneeze. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective.
||Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.|
Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
|Influenza is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through coughing
or sneezing of infected people.
||If you get sick, CDC recommends that you stay home from work or school
and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them.|

Asthma Allergy & Pulmonary Associates (AA&PA) is a sub-specialty medical practice providing evaluation and treatment to patients with a range of pulmonary and allergy problems. We have extensive experience in the care of chronic cough, lung infections and tumors, seasonal allergies, asthma, as well as the effect of neuromuscular problems on the respiratory tract. We are known for our treatment of allergic problems in singers and other professional voice users.
AA&PA is an independent practice, affiliated with the Jefferson Health System. We are also affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania Health System.
Our goals are: To provide the best possible medical care for our patients. To treat each patient with a dignity, respect, kindness and courtesy, letting the patient know their value as a person to this practice.
Asthma Allergy & Pulmonary Associates is located in The Jefferson Building, 1015 Chestnut Street. Our office is open every weekday. Hours are by appointment, but we are generally available to treat your respiratory and allergic problems in a prompt and timely fashion. Patients from age two and up may be seen in our office. Facilities are on site for pulmonary function (breathing) tests, allergy skin testing, administration of allergy shots, treatment of mild asthma attacks and electrocardiograms. We participate in all major insurance plans in the area. We are also a member of JeffCare and are participating physicians in PennCare.
If your insurance plan requires a referral, our staff will be happy to work with you to help you obtain one. Otherwise, you may make an appointment directly to see one of our doctors. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office. Our office manager, Sherry Brisk, will be happy to help you with any particular problems. We look forward to welcoming you.
