in Bryan, TX |
Dr. James Charner Allen misdiagnosed me after brushing off my symptoms of extreme fatigue and an even worse sore throat as simply allergies, but offered to test me for strep throat, "if it really made me feel better." He did not seem to care for my well being, causing me to have to pay over $150 for his laziness, not to mention, I had to later see another doctor who quickly found I had mono after testing my blood and giving a visual inspection, two things Dr. Allen couldn't bother to do.

I went to the walking clinic and I was seen by Dr. James Allen, and it was a very bad experience. I had a severe head pain and it was totally irrelevant to him. He suggested to take Ibuprofen, without taking further examinations. He approach me with arrogance and rudeness. If I don't ask to be given something for the pain, he wouldn't have done so.

While the staff was phenomenal, Dr. Allen was not. His bedside manner was pitiful and he terrified my child to the point that she stated he was a mean doctor, he scared me. I am a nurse and have a PhD and he continuously insulted my decision to bring my child in, attempted to educate me on my own child's health and illness, and basically told me I was ignorant for bringing my child in. My time and money were wasted and all I left with was insults and anger.

He was rude and rough. I was in tremendous pain and had been waiting for over an hour. When he finally came in, only minutes from closing time he chastised me for not coming in earlier (I have a job and two kids to look after, sorry for having responsibilities, doc.). When I was on the table he hurt me so I flinched, he raised his voice telling me not to move. Within sixty seconds he was done and just sent me to the ER. To him, I was irrelevant Worst experience I have ever had. AVOID!
