      While I believe that Dr. Allen is competent, he certainly did not spend enough time diagnosing/talking to me about my concerns.

      In the past two weeks Dr. Allen has performed two different shoulder surgeries on myself and my daughter. He and his team gave us both a great sense of comfort and confidence. Their knowledge and caring is the real thing. If you are considering orthopedic surgery, this should be your guy.
