Bianca Chiara, MD: Hoboken NJ Functional Medicine Clinic
Asthma and Allergy Doctor Hoboken NJ: The common cause of asthma and allergies is a lack of optimal balance in the immune system response. Numerous medications for asthma and allergies come with a multitude of side effects such as increased tendency for hypertension, weight gain and glaucoma. Additionally, the body develops a dependency to antihistamines when used long term. For these reasons, finding and eradicating the root cause of the allergy and asthma symptoms is imperative to long term health and wellness.

Determining the causes of allergies and asthma is the first step and it includes testing for hidden food allergies or imbalance. Our treatment focus is on nutrition, lifestyle, stress management, herbals and neutraceuticals/supplements, as well as pharmaceutical options when necessary. It is a truly holistic approach, open to incorporating eastern and western medicine options and being directed by the patient’s preference, combined with considerations of safety and efficacy for the health concerns being addressed.
I usually don’t like doctors and went to 2 others in Hoboken before Dr. Chiara. Dr. Chiara was kind, honest and efficient. Had no problem getting an appointment and did not have to wait very long. While most doctors have a nurse or assistant take you into the office, take your information, and then let the doctor see you for 5 minutes, Dr. Chiara listened to all of my concerns right away and I was in an out of the office in less than half an hour. Have already recommended her to a handful of friends.
