According to current guidelines, specialist consultations—with a pulmonologist, allergist/immunologist, or both—are recommended when a physician finds that a patient's asthma is inadequately controlled after 3 months of care.

Referrals are also appropriate when considering immunotherapy or if a patient has abnormal chest imaging, refractory cough, or poor quality of life. Significant psychological, social, or family issues also require specialist care.
