Stay away from this doctor!
Dr. Allaf is rude, does not take the time to answer questions, misses important details about factors that can influence your pregnancy, and does not really seem to care about his patients. Some of his staff are nice while others are gossipy and nosey. Mercy Hospital is a dirty hospital with sub-par staff so if you have another option then please go elsewhere.

Dr. Baraa Allaf, is the absolute nicest doctor you will ever meet. He never rushed me, he would sit and explain everything in detail. He would come in the room, after every sonogram to make sure everything was good. The staff there is incredible, each and every member is so kind and patient. I am actually 39 weeks and I will miss this Dr and staff tremendously. Wonderful people. Thank you for everything!!!

Explained everything to us with no rush. Performed the ultrasound himself for my twins unlike my previous high risk doctor who never touched the ultrasound or bothered herself checking.

I went to doctor Allaf for my high risk pregnancy and I consider myself to be very lucky to have found him. I don't know where to start in describing how amazing he is. His incredible dedication to his patients, his knowledge, his skills, his ability to answer your questions and put your mind at ease, his sense of humor, and his genuine care have left a lasting impression on my entire family.

Dr. Allaf is our hero. He saved our twins from being born at only 19 weeks along. He never gave up on us and helped to keep my twins safe to full term. We were terrified the entire time, but he took the time to explain everything to us and comfort us along the way. I had to have an amniocentesis and an emergency cerclage. He was there throughout my pregnancy anytime we had the littlest question or concern. Thanks to Dr. Allaf we have our babies.

I never write reviews for doctors. But going through my first pregnancy, I realized how important these reviews are for others searching for the very best doctors. Dr. Allaf is an outstanding doctor and deserves the absolute highest ratings. I was diagnosed as a high risk pregnancy early on and was fortunately referred to Dr. Allaf for consultation. This has been a true blessing. Dr. Allaf is extremely experienced and professional. He provided us top notch service.

Dr. Allaf was late by over 80 minutes to our appointment, and once he arrived was very rushed and very unprofessional. He had very disappointing bedside Manner and we actually almost walked out of the office before doing our procedure. He pulled us aside and attempted to esse our minds and unfortunately we decided to go forward with the procedure. He put our baby at risk and the procedure was a complete failure, he put us through all that trauma and didn't even get a villus sample from our CVS.

Dr. Allaf is hands down my absolute favorite. I went to him when I was pregnant with my son and I went to him again when I found out we were having twins. I can honestly say he helped me every step of the way. He took his time with me and made me feel very comfortable. Answered all of our questions. My husband and I were very pleased with him . He is honest, and caring and I highly recommend him!
