    Dr. Allen is well known as one of the best in Nashville. We have known him for many years. We are honored to say that he is " my doctor."
    in Nashville, TN |
    Best doctor I've ever had. He's fun, he's compassionate, but more importantly, he knows what he's talking about, knows how to explain it and follows up with what he says he's going to do. I can ask him anything.

    Dr. Allen is incredibly caring, thorough, and professional. He's been my doctor for nearly 20 years and I've been very happy with the care I've received.

    David Allen is a superb doctor- a true professional in every sense of the word. He takes time to get to know his patients well, learning not just the particular malady that brings the patient to him that day, but to learn what is going on in their lives overall. I've never felt rushed when meeting with David, and have always come away knowing that I have been his sole focus in our meetings. To Know him as a doctor is to come to know him as a true friend.

    I HAVE BEEN A PATIENT OF DR. ALLEN FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS NOW AND I AM STAYING WITH HIM. HE IS A VERY CARING AND KIND DOCTOR. I GIVE HIM CREDIT FOR SAVING MY LIFE. IF YOU WANT THE BEST CARE POSSIBLE THAT IS DAVID ALLEN. MY FAVORITE THING HE SAYS WHEN ASKED ABOUT A REFERRAL TO A SPECIALIST, "I WOULD SEND MY FATHER TO THIS PERSON." THAT SAYS IT FOR ME BECAUSE HE IS THE BEST AND ONLY REFERS TO THE BEST. THANKS DR. ALLEN JAMES L. JOHNSON

    My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Allen since 2000. He is outstanding - highly trained, experienced and very dedicated to his patients. He is also a "regular guy" in that it is easy to talk to him, explain issues and concerns.
    in Spring Hill, TN |
    Our family has been provided care by David and his staff for around 20 years. He is incredibly intuitive, extremely smart and knowledgeable. A great listener that takes the time to really listen. He loves to laugh, has zero arrogance and 100% kindness. His staff of 3 nurses are all wonderful as well as the front & back office folks. I highly recommend Dr. David Allen!
    in Carthage, TN |
    I have been going to Dr. David Allen for over 12 years and I can't be happier. He is certainly a leader in his chosen medical field and has an incredibly warm and friendly relationship with me as his patient. I trust him completely. His nurses are also excellent with patient care. They respond to me immediately when I need a question answered or a prescription renewed. I feel very fortunate to have him as my primary care physician. He is a 5 star plus!

    in Louisville, KY |
    David Allen is a very thorough physician. I have been a patient for many years and will continue due to the excellent care received. Thank you.
    in Nashville, TN |
    David always is efficient but never hurried in obtaining the information that he needs. He really listens as opposed to matching your response to what he expected to hear. While annual physicals may be routine, I walked away ,and have for years, pleased with the encounter, the outcome and knowing that I was not treated as just another clog in the medical machinery, which is what hospitals unfailingly and perhaps unavoidably do.
    in Pleasant Shade, Tennessee |
    Dr. Allen has been my Dr. for over 20 yrs. He has never failed me in any situation. He always listens to me and I never feel rushed.
