Over the last 20 years of practice at the Auckland Allergy Clinic, Dr Crump has witnessed the growing prevalence of Allergies and the lack of allergy awareness in New Zealand.  In this time he decided he would do two things:

The first was to write a book on the growing prevalence of Allergies in New  Zealand, and his book Allergies: New Zealand 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 recognize allergies and where to look for the most effective treatment options.

The second was  to design a website with an “Allergy Library” and a "Newsletter" which provides a resource for up to date Allergy information for patients and other health care providers.

Consultant Physician Specialising in Allergic Diseases of Adults (and Children) at Auckland Allergy Clinic / AllergyDoctor NZ.
