Allergy Care

Dr. Gary Wanerka is the founder of Branford Pediatrics & Allergy and is board certified in both General Pediatrics and Allergy and Immunology. He retired from his general pediatric duties in 2012 and now devotes his efforts solely to the evaluation and treatment of all types of allergy problems, including asthma, allergic rhinitis, eczema and food allergy. He and his associate, Joan Alfiero, PA-C, manage not only the allergy problems of patients within Branford Pediatrics & Allergy, but also welcome patients from outside providers or patients who are self-referred.


We suggest yearly appointments for our food allergy patients so that we may reevaluate for any indicated retesting and provide an updated protocol for school or daycare settings. Children with environmental allergies, asthma, and/or eczema should be seen at least 1-2 times yearly, depending on the severity of their illness. Any needed paperwork, including asthma action plans, can be provided at those visits.

If you would like to schedule an appointment with the allergy department, please call us at (203) 481-0566.
