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
