Janis T., MD

I am a severe asthmatic, and since I moved from the UK to Takoma Park, MD, fifteen years ago my asthma has become considerably worse. The air here on the border of DC is dreadful. There are many days in the year when I just can't go outside at all, and as I run a daycare nursery. This is a big problem!
