Asthma & Allergy Physicians of Rhode Island is the area’s leading asthma and allergy practice, specializing in the treatment of allergy related problems. We treat individuals with asthma, allergies, chronic cough, hives, allergic reactions, bee-sting reactions, eczema, sinus problems, and much more. Our notable reputation is due in large part to Dr. Z, who has repeatedly been voted “Top Doc” by RI Monthly for allergies. He has also been recognized as a top doctor by Castle Connely and the US News & World Report.

For all appointments, new and follow up, please bring your asthma inhalers and/or medications with you. If at all possible hold your inhaler dose prior to coming in for your visit so that we can better assess lung function and reversibility. This will also help us check your inhaler use to ensure that you are using the device properly.
The Summer Season is Upon Us!
Now that the sun is bright remember to wear sunblock. However it is very important to check the ingredients. Certain sunblocks may contain contact allergens that can be an irritant to your skin, especially if you have eczema. Here at AAPRI, we can help you identify those allergens and find relief through patch testing.
Also, rinse off and moisturize after being in chlorine pools. The chlorine can dry out and irritate your skin, causing itchy rashes.
