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.
