Dr. Ermitano's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ermitano "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."
