I especially like how the doctor's staff makes the shot process go so smoothly. Even when I miss a regular shot and my formula has to be re-made, they get it done quickly with no additional wait. And everyone is friendly and welcoming.

After two years with a severe itching rash and numerous doctors with no explanation other than dry skin, I found Dr. Ermitano who cared! She was very attentive and sincere in listening to me and getting to the bottom of my problem. All of her staff are so friendly and accommodating and within two weeks based on her suggestions and treatment, I felt relief! I can honestly say that Dr. Ermitano changed my life!

I would highly recommend Dr. Ermitano. I had an on going problem with a cough and respiratory issues for over a year with no one having any answers. My primary doctor finally referred me to Dr. E and for over a year now I have no cough or respiratory issues.

Dr. Ermitano has totally changed my life! After 26 years of uncontrollable asthma, and having to use a rescue inhaler multiple times per day, I was fortunate enough to be referred to Dr. Ermitano. My lung function has been increased by more than 20 %! No more steroids! No more wheezing! She took to time and effort to carefully study my individual case and finally came up with a regimen that worked! I have seen specialists all over the nation, and can say that she is the best!

I have debilitating allergies and finding this office has helped me immensely. This is a small practice with an experienced staff of caring and competent professionals. The shot nurse is so gentle I can barely tell I'm getting pricked with a needle. The receptionist is very helpful with scheduling and signing me up for the patient portal. The doctor is very aware of my various conditions and how they interact with my asthma and allergies.

I have a rather strange immune issue which causes me to react to drugs. I was scheduled for open heart surgery, but it was crucial that they could identify a drug which would allow me to have a contrast injection during surgery. Without an interventional drug, I would die. Dr. Ermitano was recommended by my heart physicians. She worked diligently with the highest level of caring and professionalism to identify a drug and, literally, saved my life. I cannot recommend her practice any higher!

I'm 62 and have always suffered from allergies. I never sought medical help until one Fall when I suffered more than any time. I couldn't breathe through my nose at all and nothing OTC worked. I feel a lot better now, since I went to see Dr. Ermitano. I'm getting monthly allergy shots and can manage my allergies much better now.

I came to Dr. Ermitano because my neck was breaking out in hives and my family doctor could not figure out why. It ended up I was allergic to my blood pressure medicine. After several other tests I am now taking allergy shots, for 3 years and doing great.
