What People Say About Dr. Vanessa Allen, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
I enjoyed the patient care Dr. Allen for the few years since relocating to the area. The main reason I'm looking for another physician is I always experienced billing errors which I had to make repeated contacts with her office to re-submit the claim correctly to resolve. I wrote the doctor and never received a reply or acknowledgement. Doctors should never be too busy to EVER address a hand-typed letter from a patient. These are usually legitimate concerns and may explain the exodus of patient customers elsewhere!

I am in the process of finding a new doctor. Dr. Allen’s office staff is way too unprofessional to do business with.

I recommend seeing Dr Allen for your family's healthcare needs. I feel like her practice is a "one stop shop!" She offers acupuncture, nutritional counseling, weight loss program, detox diet and bio-identical hormones treatment! I appreciate all the effort she puts in each program she introduces to her patients. I have learned a lot from her and i feel empowered! She gave me the support i needed to get my health back on track.
