DOCTOR

Dr Vincent Crump

Dr Crump is the founding partner of the Auckland Allergy and Eczema Clinic. He has written a number of review articles on Allergy, developed Patient Education Aids and frequently participates in public and professional presentations on Allergy.

Due to the growing prevalence of Allergies, and the lack of allergy awareness in New Zealand, Dr Crump has witnessed over the last 20 years of practice at the Auckland Allergy Clinic, he decided to write a book on the growing prevalence of Allergies in New Zealand, and his book "Allergies: New Zealand's Growing Epidemic" was published in 2009.

The book has been described by Penny Jorgensen, CEO of Allergy New Zealand, as "a must have book for every New Zealander". Dr Crump's book offers an in-depth examination on the treatment of allergies and the ways in which allergic conditions are inter-related. It also includes case studies illustrating how allergies manifest themselves, and a wealth of practical advice on how to recognise allergies and where to look for the most effective treatment options.
