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.
Due to the impending snowstorm our offices will be closed tomorrow morning, Monday (2/8). Our Providence office location is currently scheduled to open at Noon, while Lincoln and Warwick will be closed all day. Please check back here for further updates.
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.

It is the opposite of what you think. Recent studies have shown that having asthma in itself may make you more prone to infections. However following your treatment plan, which includes inhaled steroids, can reduce your risk of infection. Keeping your allergies under control and taking your asthma medications regularly are especially important in the winter as this reduces sinus infections, bronchitis and pneumonia, all of which can aggravate your asthma.
Always remember to wash your hands. It’s the best way to prevent transmission of infection.
