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
Changes are coming to us here at AAPRI!
A few members of our team will be moving on soon and we will be consolidating some of our office locations in order to better serve you, our valued patients. Please click here for more details.
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.
Summer is Winding Down, Which Means Back to School!
It’s back to school time. Parents don’t forget your children’s’ school medical forms for asthma medications and food allergies. Best to give them to us in advance as it is difficult to complete the forms during the visit. It may take up to a week to gather all the required information.
The ragweed season is here, but don’t forget about outdoor mold allergens either. If you are noticing more allergy symptoms lately, you are not alone. The summer is almost over and fall allergies are right around the corner so it is very important to keep following your allergy treatment plan.
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.
