OUR PHYSICIAN / ALLERGIST-IMMUNOLOGIST:
Maria Luisa Pilar D. Ermitano, MD
I was always a late bloomer and figured only after graduating from college, that perhaps I was called to serve as a doctor. It has always been a very special privilege to me, because I love take caring of people (especially children) and helping them feel better. It is my vocation, along with being a wife and mother, that brings meaning, happiness, and fulfillment to my life. 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.
I then lived in Winchester, Kentucky and provided pediatric and allergy-immunology care to Powell county and other surrounding medically underserved areas. Time is precious to me and I love recharging with my family on weekends, music, ballet, and reading. My husband has taught me to enjoy biking, boating, and I am especially thankful that he and my daughter have taught me a deeper appreciation of the peace and beauty to be found in nature. I am also very grateful for the very wonderful and supportive friends I have had all through my life. In this latest chapter, I have found most of them from being part of St Simon Catholic Church and School.
