Patient Comments (3)
I saw Dr. Allen for problems with snoring and specifically wanted an evaluation and and opinion on the possibility of having a uvulectomy. He began examining me before I could finish a sentence and while slipping a nasal endoscope in my nose told me to sign a form. He told me I needed a number of nasal surgeries and he would contact my insurance to see how many they would pay for. I got a bill for nearly $900 for his office visit. It was obvious that the only value I was to him was money.

I won't recommend Dr. Allan. I was in for my sinus infection, of my four visits, all Dr Allan did was first ordering a CT scan, then three kinds of antibiotics (he had me on 50 days straight), and then another CT scan, and then he said he can do surgery. I didn't return after four times of short, non-caring, ineffective visits. You know from your heart if someone cares for you when you look into this person's eyes. My experience with Dr Allan showed otherwise: he cared for money not patients.

Always on time (within 15 minutes or so). That's always a biggie! Always patient, kind, and with a twist of humor thrown in. One of the best doctors I've ever had. He looks out for my best interests. He's is a keeper for sure. Denny P.
