I think I may have asthma

Patient : I think I may have asthma
Doctor :   Hi. Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific. I would advise you the following in such a situation: Consult a Family Physician for auscultation of the chest as this is the single most physical examination test that a Doctor can hear through his stethoscope the typical rhonchi, which is so classical of Asthma. Additional tests of PFT (Pulmonary Function tests), X-ray of the chest, blood and urine add on to rule out or to confirm any other diagnosis. Once diagnosed, he treatment would be very simple and effective. I hope this answer helps you.
