Allergy & Immunology | Female

Dr. Maria Luisa Pilar Ermitano, MD
I chose to become a doctor because I love take caring of people and helping them feel better. I am a physician board certified both by the American Board of Allergy & Immunology and the American Board of Pediatrics. I graduated from the pediatric residency program at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York, then received a two year grant (a scholarship) in 1998 from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology to complete my fellowship training at Louisiana State University in New Orleans. I joined its faculty immediately upon graduation as assistant professor at the Department of Allergy and Immunology, and ranked in the 98th percentile among those who took the certification examinations of the American Board of Allergy and Immunology that same year. After working the medically underserved in Kentucky, my husband and I moved to Indiana. I am currently the president of the Indiana Allergy & Immunology Society.

Dr. Ermitano is an extremely through doctor. She takes her time with all her patients and doesn't rush you through your appointment time like some doctors I have been too.

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.
in Franklin, IN |
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.
Noblesville, IN |
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.
in Fishers, IN |
Dr. Ermitano is very competent and knowledgeable. Her staff is excellent too. I would highly recommend her.
Thank you MaryAnn, we love seeing you as a patient!
in Indianapolis, IN |
Dr. Ermitano and her staff are terrific. Very personable and sincerely interested in my well-being. Professional and thorough but make me feel like part of their family not an impersonal number or account. Love their smiles and sincere concern.
Thank you Miss Kathy! You are part of our family!

Dr. Ermitano really takes time each visit to discuss issues, and she makes sure that we understand exactly what is going on with our son.
