What People Say About Dr. Russell Allison, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had an apt. scheduled for surgery. They call and tell me, by the way we need 1000 down before we will do your surgery. The surgical clinic will request a down payment also. They will notify you. None of this was discussed when I was deciding if I wanted surgery. I have insurance, but I had to cancel my surgery because I can't afford it. There is no payment plan. You pay up front or you don't have surgery. I guess I will limp around.

I was referred by my primary care doctor, after seeing a bad MRI, to see Dr. Allison for a second opinion. To buy time for a full knee replacement, we opted for a knee scope. I felt very comfortable with the whole staff, who went over every detail with me (Nikki was very helpful with this part before the scope) of what would happen and what to expect. Other than pain, I feel like I made a good choice. I recommend Dr. Allison and Nikki and the surgery center very highly!!!
