Dr.Allen was able to answer all my questions regarding a recommended medication. She has the knowledge and experience to convey factual support. She recommended a vitamin supplement to support the medication. The pharmacist was surprised and told me that most doctors overlook the need for supplements and asked my doctors name! This too gave me confidence in Dr.Allen's professional and caring advice.
