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.
Notes from the Desk of Dr. Z
Soon the weather will start to cool and the leaves will begin changing color, which can only mean one thing, ragweed season. Check out the latest edition of The Drop Line to learn how you can still enjoy all the fun outdoor activities during this fall allergy season.
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 air is crisp and cool, which means it’s a great time to be outdoors for fall sports, pumpkin patches, hayrides and raking leaves. Remember to guard against outdoor mold allergens. Mold spores and fall pollens are in that crisp fall air. When outdoors for long periods of time try to wear a pollen mask or scarf and be sure to shower, wash your hair and change your clothes when you return home.
