  • Then go back and tell him that it's NOT working and insist on a referral!! And  if he tries to blow you off again either switch doc's asap or fight harder!!!!

  • I am on medicaid and I do not need a referral to see a specialist. Check with your HMO to find out and then DEMAND a referral from the pediatrician if that is what is needed. In the mean time, run a vaporizer when she sleeps, prop his head up. Keep the room or house on the cooler side. I would also find a different doctor.

  • If your pediatrician won't listen to you, find one who will.

  • you could try to find the cause of the asthma. often, dairy can cause asthma. so can regular household cleaners. so can regular household dust.
