Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have only WONDERFUL things to say about Dr. Allen! He has such a great bedside manner! He always makes patient care a top priority. I was looking for a very personal, caring, and professional experience for my pregnancy and that is exactly what I received from Dr. Allen! My delivery was everything I hoped for and more! He is absolutely the best!

Dr. Allen saw me throughout my second pregnancy and delivered my second baby. I would highly recommend him. He was professional, knowledgeable and comforting during the pregnancy and delivery.
