AsthmaAllergiesChildren.com is a website devoted to ideas that are within the guidelines set by accredited medical authorities for treatment of asthma and allergies. We will not provide a platform for theories or approaches that do not meet the standards our physicians use in their clinical practice.

DR. LARRY CHIARAMONTE was educated at Yale College and trained in family practice, pediatrics, and allergy and immunology at Yale and John Hopkins. He has done groundbreaking research as well as clinical practice. He established a program that produced dozens of allergists in Brooklyn, New York, with a focus on inner-city populations. His work on compliance and use of peak flow meters are now part of the national guidelines for the treatment of allergy.

Dr. Chiaramonte is now concentrating on asthma treatment relating to Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan and in high-risk populations in the South Bronx.
