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
Are you using your asthma inhaler correctly? Many do not, especially children. Be sure to check out our feature blog post for information and instructions on Proper Asthma Inhaler Use.
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 air is crisp and cool, which means it’s 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.
