History

For more than eighty years, our goal has been to provide excellent and compassionate allergy and asthma care to children and adults in a patient-focused manner.

The practice now known as Allergy Associates of Rochester was founded by Dr. Jerome Glaser on January 31, 1931. Dr. Glaser was a pioneer in the field of allergy and contributed significantly to building the specialty. He founded allergy departments at several local hospitals and served as the national President of what is now the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology. Dr. Glaser actively practiced with Allergy Associates of Rochester from 1931 until his retirement in 1980.
