Dr Allen is such a caring Doctor; he isn't there to just quickly do what is necessary but he takes the time to really get to know his patients. I have had cataract surgery by him and had no problems. I see him once a year for follow ups. I am getting ready to get my husband in to see him as the VA hospital clinic my husband uses can't see him until next February.

He is the best eye Dr. I have been to very informative and tells you what going on with you eyes. And cares about you and is a personal person and takes care of your eyes. Very excellence in surgery also.

Dr. Allen on a scale of 1 to 10 rates at least an 11. He did cataract surgery on both eyes for my mother last spring. We could not have asked for a more caring and professional physician. Boone is EXTREMELY fortunate to have Dr. Allen practicing in our area. Aside from being a fine doctor is is a genuinely nice fellow and was extremely considerate of my mom. TOP NOTCH!

Very nice and he listens...great doctor. The staff seem super nice too. I never have to wait more than 10 minutes. If all doctors were as nice as Dr. Allen no one would dread going to their appointments.
