Our practice philosophy is to provide comprehensive, cutting-edge allergy and asthma medical care for both adults and children. Both of our physicians are board certified in Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and are able to provide the highest level of expertise and care available. We also strive to ensure maximal patient comfort and we have created an office environment with this goal in mind.

Our practice focuses on a wide variety of allergy, asthma and immunology-related conditions: common food allergies, seasonal or year-round aero-allergies, eczema, chronic sinus conditions, and drug allergies. We also have a great deal of experience treating unusual conditions such as autoimmune rashes and eosinophilic esophagitis. We utilize state of the art diagnostic tools and treatments. We are passionate about continuing medical education and our affiliation with the SUNY-Downstate Allergy and Immunology fellowship training program allows us to remain abreast of the latest guidelines in the field of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. Working closely with primary care physicians, and other specialists in ENT, dermatology, and pulmonology, we provide a comprehensive, evidence-based treatment plan for all of our patients.

We have a modern, state of the art office designed with the patient's comfort in mind. Along with being spacious and welcoming, our reception area also features interactive entertainment and access to Wi-Fi. Our office is conveniently located in close proximity to major freeways, with easy access to public transportation as well.

Premier patient care is our goal and our wonderful staff is eager to service the needs of our patients. We work closely with our patients whether it relates to navigating the complex world of insurance coverage issues, or whether it pertains to educating them about their diagnosis and the management of their particular condition. We offer convenient office hours-including evenings-and we participate with most insurance plans. All of our patients, whether existing or new, have direct access to our physicians during off hours.

Dr. Rao Yalamanchili

For over 35 years, Dr. Rao Yalamanchili has been providing quality allergy and asthma care for thousands of patients in the metropolitan New York area. His rare distinction of being board certified in both internal medicine and pediatrics, in addition to allergy and immunology, has allowed him to provide outstanding care to both adults and children. Dr. Rao has played an integral role in running one of the largest allergy and immunology training programs in the US and has been responsible for training over a hundred allergists since 1977.

After graduating from medical school, Dr. Rao earned a Masters of Science degree in nutrition from the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Columbia University, New York City. He then completed residencies in both pediatrics and internal medicine, followed by a fellowship in allergy and immunology at Long Island College Hospital. Afterwards, Dr. Rao was appointed as a clinical assistant professor of medicine at SUNY-Downstate medical center in Brooklyn, as well as Vice Chairman of Allergy and Immunology at Long Island College Hospital.

Dr. Rao has served as chairman of the Allergy section of the Medical Society of the State of New York. He is also an active fellow of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, and various regional, state and local medical societies. He has made numerous scientific presentations at national meetings, and he has authored many articles, which have been published in various medical journals. As an expert and educator in the field, Dr. Rao has organized conferences aimed to update practicing physicians on developments in the treatment of food allergies, asthma, and other allergic disorders.

Dr. Rao and his wife, Sujatha, have made Staten Island their home for over 30 years. Over this time, many of his original patients have had children (or grandchildren) of their own who have also become patients.

Dr. Wu completed his fellowship at SUNY-Downstate in Brooklyn and is Board Certified in Adult and Pediatric Allergy and Immunology, as well as Internal Medicine. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan, before attending medical school at Wayne State University. Afterwards he completed his residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Massachusetts, before starting his Allergy and Immunology fellowship. Since fellowship, Dr. Wu has remained active in the Allergy and Immunology training program at SUNY-Downstate, and is also an active staff member at Richmond University Medical Center as well as Staten Island University Hospital.

Due in part to his own food allergies, Dr. Wu has a strong interest in food allergy diagnosis, management and treatment, as well as asthma, which drew him into the field of allergy in the beginning. He also has a strong interest in complementary and alternative medicine in combination with traditional medicine. Before attending medical school, he conducted research with the National Institutes of Health, at the University of Michigan's Complementary and Alternative Medicine Research Center. During his fellowship, he continued his work in studying green tea extract and its' effects on allergies, as well as resident physician education, and presented his work at national meetings for the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.

With this background, Dr. Wu is very interested in possible nutritional augmentation and herbal therapies for asthma and food allergies in combination with the latest guidelines for quality medical care. He also loves to educate his patients on their conditions, and works with them to provide the best possible customized care for each patient. Dr. Wu lives on Staten Island with his wife, and in his spare time he enjoys tinkering with the latest technologies.
