in Scottsville, KY |
When I met Dr Allen, he spend time and was thorough, felt like he cared, but I went today for labs and lab tech gave me a "estimated bill'. I have insurance, maintenance labs, I could not afford that amount and wasn't charged like that previously. She said just an estimate...well, why give it to me if you don't know exact amount! Its like they are more worried about getting paid then taking care of me!

Dr. Allen is the kind of physician that you cannot find fault with. Every aspect of his care, attention to the patient, thorough explanations, wait times, staff courtesy-it's all good. Cannot recommenbt him highly enough
in Smiths Grove, KY |
Dr. Allen and staff should be the standard that all Primary Care Physicians are grades by. There is nothing negative to say about his practice or staff; waiting times are phenomenal, always greeted with a smile and no matter what I am in the office for, I have never questioned the treatment received. They are simply the best.
in Bowling Green, KY |
Most people I know dread going to the Dr.-I look forward to it. Dr. Allen is one of the easiest people to talk to (about anything) that you'll ever meet. He can give you the medical details of what he sees with sound advice on what to work on. That has helped me understand what I need to do to get my health conditions under control. The staff is super friendly and although I only see them 3 times a year, they know my name. The new location on Campbell lane is new, clean, and - well, Awesome!

Dr. Allen is a heroic doctor, always knowledgeable, always able to comfort when needed. His bedside manner is impeccable, he listens thoroughly and explains everything.
