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.
