Patient Comments (4)
in Albany, NY |
My daughter and I had a great experience at Dr. Allen's office. She was very patient as I get sensitive when it comes to eye exams. She was very accommodating and tried different methods to ease my anxiety. I would greatly recommend Dr Allen to my family and friends.
Schenectady, NY |
I found Dr. Allen unwelcoming and not particularly forthcoming with information. I felt as though I had to keep asking questions to find out what I needed, and that she was sometimes reluctant to answer. Then I went to a specialist and he told me that what she had said was not right.
Albany, NY |
My experience with Dr. Allen was extremely disappointing. She was not friendly, was abrupt, and not cooperative with scheduling needs. She withheld medical testing information so that I was unable to follow-through with another doctor in timely manner, which caused difficulties, money, and was upsetting. I question Dr. Allen's ethics. I would never recommend her to anyone. I did not feel she was someone I could trust; she appeared uncaring.

She is extremely thorough and makes the patient feel comfortable and confident in her treatment.
