    Dr. Allen treated my mother for Ovarian cancer (4A). She was 43 at the time, and survived 26 yeas in remission. Through Dr. Allen's knowledge and dedication, my mother was able to be present for the birth of her only Grandson as well as enjoying being an integral part of his life. I have and do recommend Dr. Allen to my family and friends

    Dr. Allen says...

    Dr. Heather Allen is a medical oncologist at Comprehensives Cancer Centers of Nevada (CCCN), who specializes in the treatment of breast cancer. She actively participates in clinical research and was instrumental in establishing a research affiliation between CCCN and UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center.

She believes that it's important that her patients are well cared for and also feel well cared for.

    Dr. Allen's Care Philosophy

    I care for my patients in two ways. First, a multidisciplinary treatment approach is essential. Treatment planning involves other specialists including breast surgeons, pathologists, radiation oncologists, as well as nurses, pharmacists, members of our research team, counselors, etc. And second, every treatment plan is individualized according to the specifics of each case and the needs of that patient. It?s important that my patients are well cared and also feel well cared for.
