I met with Dr. Allen for my continuing sinus pain. I wasn't sure that anyone could help given how long I've lived with this pain. He was kind, sympathetic and very understanding. Now after my procedure I'm feeling great and I can't thank him enough.

Dr. Allen improved my life by ten-fold. Before my surgery with him, I could barely make it through the day due to sinus issues. After surgery, I can breathe better than ever. His compassion for patients truly shows in every visit.

Dr. Allen was great and extremely professional. I had a lot of questions and he took the time to listen to me. He was extremely detailed in answering my questions. He personally followed up with me after the procedure. I can't recommend him highly enough.
