Dr. Allen is wonderful! From the moment she walked into the examing room and throughout my entire appointment I was impressed with her. She listened to my concerns with the issues I am experiencing. After my examination, she discussed with me her thoughts for my treatment going forward. I am extremely confident under her care and would recommend her to anyone.

Follow up visit. She recommended injection in left hip due to inflammation of bone spur. I have been seeing Dr Allen since 2017 after my lower lumbar surgery. She is very good at her specialty and I would highly recommend her.

I saw Dr. Allen last week for a knee problem and am already improved. I've seen her over the years for problems with each shoulder, low back, and hip and each time she has set out a plan to resolve this issue without invasive procedures or even an MRI. She evaluates the problem area with office ultrasound and I have yet to notice a charge for that. This country needs more caring physicians like Dr. Allen.

I love the wayDr. Allen practices medicine. She sees you herself instead of having to run a gauntlet of PA's etc before face to face time. She spends the time she needs to, does procedures herself, explains what and why she's doing things. She's taken me from a painful mess and returned me to functional and pain free while avoiding surgery. I wish I'd found her years ago.
