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.
Notes from the Desk of Dr. Z
Important note, when calling our office, please listen closely as our phone menu options have changed.
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.
Spring is here! Don’t let your allergies keep you from enjoying it.
The spring allergy season may be shorter this year, but it could be worse than normal. Due to the long lasting cold and wet winter conditions, we may be in store for higher pollen counts once the trees start pollinating.
Make sure that you are following the necessary precautions by taking your allergy drops and receiving your allergy shots regularly as scheduled. Consistency is the key, especially during the allergy season to see continued results.
Keep indoors and keep windows closed during peak pollen times, which is around midday. Outdoor activities such as exercising, going for walks or gardening should be done when pollen counts are at their lowest, early mornings and late afternoons. And lastly remember to wash your hair and change your clothes after going outdoors to remove collected pollen.
We will do our best to try and accommodate any appointments within 24 – 48 hours at one of our five office locations.
Remember for your convenience we have office locations in Providence, Warwick, Lincoln, Johnston and Warren, Rhode Island.
