Video of Dr. April Wazeka, Our All-Time Favorite Doc Ever!

MorristownGreen, the news site for a nearby town, posted a video of our absolute favorite pediatric pulmonologist, Dr. April Wazeka!  I'm so happy to be able to "introduce" her to all of you!

Dr. Wazeka looked after my boys when they were younger, and really got them on the path to recovery. She's the best of the best, always taking time with us, listening to me, and respecting my choices. There's no doctor I recommend more highly....I can't imagine anyone not being impressed with her. (For the record, the ONLY reason we don't see her anymore is that she's now got two children of her own and works limited hours. Since my work hours aren't as flexible as they once were, it's just harder to see her. But I'm sure as her kids enter grade school, we'll manage to sync back up!)

I''m having problems viewing this video. It's a great interview about 1/2 through the video it stops. I don't think it's fully loading.

Could you please let me know if there is a fix or update me on this.

Thank you,
Lisa Fields

Thanks, Lisa. I'll look into it. Meanwhile, here's the link to the YouTube page:

Appreciate the heads up, and apologies to anyone else facing this issue!

I thought this was an awesome video too! As a patient education specialist, I often hear many concerns and frustrations especially from parents who have children with asthma. They are trying to balance their concerns about letting their child engage in active play and sports, uncovering the most common triggers, making sure they are not over medicated, and most importantly, keeping their asthma under control and their child out of the emergency room. They are unsure and nervous what “I’m not feeling well mommy” really means. Recognizing the symptoms of asthma in a child can be extremely difficult and cause a lot of anxiety. I think it’s important whenever possible to let patients know there is help out there and it doesn’t require guessing or relying on your child to let you know how they feel. Spiro PD is truly the world’s first personal spirometer which empowers patients and caregivers to monitor lung function anytime and anywhere, at work, school, vacation, play, and more. Spiro PD has an intuitive color touch screen and is extremely easy to use and understand. The information from Spiro PD can be uploaded to the computer with a USB and emailed directly to the doctor. Spiro PD can alert parents of a declining lung function before their child begins to feel symptoms. This early detection will help to prevent asthma attacks, trips to the emergency room and over medicated patients. It also helps patients begin to identify the triggers and warning signs of an impending asthma attack. Spiro PD empowers patients and parents and enables them to have a lot more confidence in making educated decisions about potential activity. No more guessing and no more worrying if it’s okay to play or not. Spiro PD is priced at $219, which for most people pays for itself if it prevents just one emergency room visit.
