This doctor is amazing! He helped my 83 year old uncle identify a pre-existing right side heart failure that another group had failed to properly diagnose and treat. I was hysterical yet he remained calm and accessible as he worked with his team to treat my uncle. He asked hospital staff specific and pointed questions that helped him get to the root cause of my uncles condition immediately. Dr. Allen is not only knowledgeable and highly skilled he works hard to save lives. I highly recommend him
