This doctor misdiagnosed my severe Meibomian gland dysfunction as an eye infection and prescribed steroid eye drops. When I returned days later with worsened symptoms he examined me again this time saying I had a scratch that was caused by bad eyelash growth. He plucked an eyelash and said I'd should be all better now. My symptoms worsened further. I got a same-day appointment for a second opinion. The second opinion doctor finally diagnosed me properly. Dr. Ronald Allen was way, way off.

My app't for an annual medical eye exam with Dr. Allen was very thorough. His manner is reassuring and he performed tests that I hadn't had before with previous ophthalmologists. He took time to answer my questions and I'm confident in his assessments and recommendations.

Shout out to Dr. Allen (ophthalmology). My husband and I go to him annually to monitor our eye health due to risks associated with diabetes. Dr. Allen has a caring confident manner which puts us at ease. He takes his time during the examination and is good at explaining things in simple layman terms. We highly recommend Dr. Allen! Since we have had such positive experiences with Dr. Allen, we are looking at other docs at the Portland Clinic to be our primary care physicians.

Dr. Allen was unable to discern hsv1 on my eyelid from a common sty! I have experienced several hsv1 leisons on my eye lids in the recent past, as well as a sty. I KNOW THE DIFFERENCE! l will not go back to this doctor and now I am doubting The Portland Clinic in general. Seriously, I am expected to pay a hefty bill for an incorrect diagnosis, as well as home care that is inapproprite for hsv1??? Probably not going to happen, as I will now need to see another opthomologist.
Dr Allen failed to identify an emergency retinal detachment until a whole week after symptoms began. I as a patient was in panic about sudden vision loss and was told that my eyes were completely healthy until I pushed to move up some screening tests where he then was able to identify something was wrong, but even then the diagnosis was off.
