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
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.
Ever wonder how a scope test is done? Scheduled for a patch test and curious what the patches look like? Check out Dr. Z’s TV video channel to watch our entire collection of short, educational videos.
The Fall Season is Upon Us!
The weather is changing and temperatures outside are finally cooling down. These weather changes affect the pollen in the air and bring about the ragweed season. We didn’t miss it this year, the ragweed season was just slightly delayed and it is here now.
It’s also 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.
Remember it is most important that you follow the necessary precautions by taking your allergy drops and receiving your allergy shots regularly as scheduled. Consistency is the key, especially during the allergy seasons to see continued results.
