The Cystic Fibrosis Center is directed by the division of pediatric pulmonology at Hasbro Children's Hospital. The center is certified by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Our pediatric and young adult cystic fibrosis clinic meets every Thursday afternoon, while our adult clinic meets on Thursday mornings. However, our cystic fibrosis experts are available at other times when there is an urgent need.
We are always available for you and want to provide the best care to you and your family. If you are already a patient of the Cystic Fibrosis Center:
- Please check your medication supply prior to clinic appointments and let the nurse know if any refills are needed when reviewing your list of medications. Many insurance companies now encourage or require patients to use mail-order pharmacies. Usually, we must fax them a prescription for a 90-day medication supply. Please check your policy and bring all forms that need to be completed.
- If you need refills between visits, please call two weeks in advance. Prior authorization from your insurance company is sometimes needed. Advance notice will help us make sure that you do not run out.
To make or change an appointment, please call our main number at 401-444-6540.
For medical problems or questions, please call 401-444-3860.
Please leave a detailed message including:
- Your name
- The patient's full name
- Your phone number including the area code
Please note, your call will be returned as soon as possible.
Do not wait for us to return your call. Call your primary care physician or go to the emergency department and ask them to contact the cystic fibrosis doctor on call.
For urgent problems when we are not in the office or on nights and weekends, you may call 401-444-4000 and ask for a pediatric pulmonologist to be paged.
