    My husband and I are new patients of Dr. Allara. Other members of our family are patients and suggested we see him. I had met him while bringing another family member to him for a second opinion. I was so impressed with his kindness and how comforting he was to the patient as well as those of us who were there for her. We are now seeing him and are very pleased. Everyone there is very friendly and very helpful. We are very happy with the change. The Mastrangelo's Peabody Ma.

    Dr. Allara is kind and considerate, very knowledgeable and takes time to talk to his patients and listen to their concerns. Even though you know each day is very busy for a Primary Care doctor, he always takes the appropriate time to spend with you and you never feel like he is rushing out to see the next patient. His treatment plans are great and most issues can be taken care of right in his complex.

    Front office staff was never very helpful and recently when I went to another PCP instead of telling me they could transfer all my medical records directly to the new PCP at no charge they charged me $50 for the records! I have seen Dr. Allara for over 6 years and I found him to be friendly but non-empathetic. Over the years my blood counts have deteriorated and was sent to see specialist in a variety of fields with no conclusive results. His reply from then forward was draw blood and watch,

    Was my PCP for over 6 years and during that time my blood counts dropped but he kept telling me we will keep checking, finally I got a new PCP in 2015 and within a month was diagnosed with cancer. Many more details behind this but the gist is no empathy from this Dr and is more of a push you through and collect the money from the benefits.

    My family and I have been with Dr. Allara for 16 years. We have gotten to know many of the doctors and other staff in the practice. It is helpful to view the practice as a whole, as there are several doctors. My husband and sons usually have appointments with Dr Allara but sometimes with others. I generally have appointments with one of the nurse practitioners . We have been happy with our treatment which has included several significant problems with my husband and a son's rare disease.

    Dr. Allara was my PCP for over 2 years and I never met him. I tried to book appointments with him but never could get in with him because he was always overbooked. I had to see a nurse practitioner every time. You would think that he would make some time for at least an initial visit but I didn't even get that. He is the director of the practice which has gone downhill over the past year. Look at the latest reviews around the web.
