Vanderbilt Asthma, Sinus and Allergy Program opens new location in FranklinJun. 21, 2017, 1:16 PM
The Vanderbilt Asthma, Sinus and Allergy Program (VASAP) has opened the doors to a new location in Franklin, Tennessee, to bring convenient care to patients.
The Franklin location of the Vanderbilt Asthma, Sinus and Allergy Program began offering services on Monday, June 19. The new offices are located at 919 Murfreesboro Rd., in the same building as the Vanderbilt Health and Williamson Medical Center Walk-in Clinic.
VASAP is a multi-specialty program dedicated to treating airway disease such as asthma as well as the testing and treatment of a variety of sinus and allergy-related ailments. VASAP physicians treat approximately 30,000 patient visits each year.
David Hagaman, M.D., and Dana Wirth, NP, will offer allergy skin tests, pulmonary testing, allergy injections and biological injection therapy at the Franklin location.
“The Vanderbilt Asthma, Sinus and Allergy Program has been around since 1999, and over the years we have seen a tremendous number of patients from Williamson County,” Hagaman, medical director of VASAP outreach, said. “Asthma and allergies are diseases that require long-term management, and we wanted to make treatment more convenient for our patients with this new clinic. We’ve been working on opening this clinic for a long time, and we are excited to see it happening.”
There are VASAP clinics located in Brentwood, on West End Avenue in Nashville, and in Gallatin, Lebanon and now Franklin. The Franklin location will offer the same treatment options as the downtown location.
“There are a several new treatments for airway disorders besides allergy shots, including injectable medications such as Xolair, Nucala and Cinqair,” Hagaman said. “Patients living in the Williamson County area will be able to access these treatments without worrying about downtown Nashville traffic. It made sense to help them manage their chronic conditions closer to home.”
Hagaman and Wirth will see patients Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Fridays from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. To make an appointment with VASAP, call 615-936-2727.
