Dr. Allen is a fantastic GI Doctor. He's a great listener spends time explaining everything very well. I have been a patient for close to 30 years! His nurse Cheyl is absolutely the best nurse I have ever seen, and I've been to countless doctors and encountered many nurses. She is very knowledgeable and she gets the job done swiftly and always right the first time. This is a great combination of team work and 100% professionalism! Cheryl thank you for all you do for me!

Dr. Mark Allen has treated my incredibly complicated Crohn's Disease with expertise, patience and genuine warmth. I have been under his care for nearly 15 years. Dr. Allen is not only a good listener with a tremendous amount of experience but the one instance when he has ran out of ideas he had the wisdom to send me to Mayo Clinic for evaluation. I literally send all of my friends and family to him. His front office and nurse are also completely top.notch professionals.
