in Bolton Landing, NY |
Dr. Allen has a knack of putting you at ease from your initial appointment. Dr. Allen was consulted for a second opinion. During the visit we were very happy to see he had completely familiarized himself with the forwarded records. He explained the condition and how he would approach it. He impressed us with his confidence and mannerism. We were leaning towards having the surgery at Memorial Sloan and the visit with Dr. Allen sealed the decision. Surgery went better than we could have hoped!

Dr Allen saved my life, I can not put into words how lucky I was to have had him as my doctor, I would recommend him to all my family and friends, He is awesome.This man not only is the best doctor and surgeon but, he is very kind and understanding and gives you the time you need to answer all questions and explains all procedures in detail. I am a pancreatic cancer survivor because of Dr Allen and his team I rate him and his staff higher than 5 star.
