I am a very fortunate person to have been treated by Dr Allam for my post kidney transplant at Medical City Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas. My transplant was in November 2019. Soon after my surgery, the post transplant care, monitoring of my graft kidney and overall recovery was closely monitored by Dr Allam and his dedicated, caring and efficient staff. My recovery did have some complications ( due to infections etc), but due to Dr Allam’s vast experiences, knowledge and expertise on post transplant treatments, he very carefully, gently and sincerely cared for my recovery. Now, after more than a year, since my return to my home in Southern California, Dr Allam still takes his time and interest to care and advise on my treatment. So I am immensely grateful to Dr Allam, I wish him a very successful and blessed life and profession, so that like me, many others may benefit from his kindness and capabilities. I owe my recovery to a healthier life to Dr Allam.

Gene Tung in Arlington , TX – Dec 19, 2018
Dr. Allam has been my nephrologist for almost nine years now, through both PD (peritoneal dialysis) and my kidney transplant. I sincerely believe he cares for me and my wife, never failing to inquire about her also. I consider him a tremendous source of all things medical and value his counsel. He is extremely thorough and explains to your satisfaction what is going on with your condition. It’s because of Dr. Allam we’ll be staying in the North Texas area in retirement.

Eric Austin in Aledo, TX – Dec 19, 2018
I met Dr. Allam and the staff when I was being screened for a Kidney transplant. From the start you knew the focus was on you the patient and your family. He is very knowledgeable and explains complex issues and procedures thoroughly and makes sure your questions and concerns are dealt with. A very compassionate and caring doctor. I have been his patient since March of 2016, from screening through my transplant and now post care. Best doctor and staff that I have ever encountered.

Gayanna Proffitt in TX – May 22, 2018
One of the best transplant nephrologist i ever dealt with. Dr. Allam has been taking a very good care of me after my kidney transplant. I am from New Jersey and i received my transplant in Fort Worth Texas and i chose Dr. Allam to be my nephrologist post-transplant and he has been adjusting my immuno suppressive medications very well. Dr. Allam is transplant medical director at Medical City Hospital and his team is doing commendable job. I would say that they are the fastest transplant center in

Dr. Allam goes beyond the call of duty. I owe my life to him. He and his staff give great care and are on top of my medical needs. He is the Dr. that I trust the most of all my Drs. When I developed skin cancer and had some issues he spent 45 minuets on the phone in my presence looking for a Dr. that could most likely handle my problem. What other Dr. does that. He cares. When my kidney was operating at 6% and going south he is the one that got me accepted as a kidney transplant recipient.

Vicky in Ft Worth, TX – Sep 08, 2017
Since I first met Dr. Allam, he immediately put me at ease with his compassionate nature and caring smile. As a transplant patient, he's kept me well and gotten me through some bumpy places during my time of healing. He's never treated me as a faceless number on a medical record but more like a member of his family or a treasured friend. HE TRULY CARES for and about me which can be rare these days. His knowledge is extensive; he takes time to listen. I would give him 10 stars if possible.

Dr. Allam seems to be one of the rare doctors who cares about their patients. He tells me if I have an issue about my health before my next appointment, not to wait till then, but to call him right away. He was very through about my issue and ordered testing I had not had before. His staff is very nice and helpful. I appreciate all of them.
