Dr. Allende and his staff are very professional and caring. I had neck surgery in February 2015 and very pleased with the outcome of that surgery. I wish all my doctors offices and staff were as pleasant to deal with as this practice. I highly recommend this practice to anyone who is looking for a quality professional.
