He repaired both my distal bicep ruptures 7 years apart. Both were complicated and the second had to be shorter. I am now 53 and lifting 90lb dumbells on incline pess etc.. I am more fit then before my surgery's! He is the best. I am a former college baseball pitcher and club football & basketball player. I am just glad o got lucky and found him!

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.
