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
Please note that our Warwick office location has changed.
We have moved to the second floor in the same building at 470 Toll Gate Road. All office appointments, testing and allergy shots will now be in Suite 203.
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 Here!
Summer is the perfect time to be outdoors taking advantage of the warm weather. Sunblock is a must while out in the sun, but this can be problem for a person with eczema. Your symptoms might become worse from a contact allergy within the ingredients found in sunblock, lotions, sprays, etc. Look into patch testing here at AAPRI where we can help you identify those allergens and find relief. Heat and humidity can be hard on people with asthma. One source of relief is air conditioning. Make sure your a/c is in working order. More importantly this is the time to be taking your controller asthma medications as directed. Contact your provider if you take albuterol more than 2 times a week for your symptoms.
We will do our best to try and accommodate any appointments within 24 – 48 hours at one of our five office locations.
For your convenience we have office locations in Providence, Warwick, Lincoln, Johnston and Warren, Rhode Island. 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.
