I want to thank Dr Allison for seeing me on such short notice. I live out of town and he was able to help me in clearing a nasty swimmers ear. I really appreciated the concern he shown me and the care I received from him and his staff. Thanks again Dr Allison!!

Dr. Allison is the best Dr I have ever met. He took care of my daughter 3 years ago and recently. He is taking care of my Dad. He cares about his patients. He is super talented. He listen to the patients and He not only take care of your problems. He search deep to find what causes it. I am giving him and his team a 5 stars rate but they deserve a 100 stars.

Great doctor. Great bedside manner. Treated me well and even made time during his lunch to see me when I was in a lot of pain (shingles). He really changed my life during a desperate time. Thanks, Dr. Allison!!

Dr. Allison is very knowledgeable and listens to my concerns. So thankful that I have had him as my doctor. We have recommended him to family and friends.

Dr. Allison is wonderful! He is very helpful when I have questions. When I ask my questions he listens and cares about my daughters health. I never feel like I am getting pushed out the door so he could see the next patient. He really spends the time that is needed with us. My daughter loves him. He is great with kids. My daughter was really sick with a high fever and tonsillitis. When I called they said he was booked for a month but they were able to squeeze me in the very next morning.

I would not recommend this doctor to my worst enemy. Does not listen. Went to see him for ear pain and he treated me like it was all in my head. Had he bothered to look at my medication for which he had the list, he could have seen that one of the side effects was ear pain. I found this out later when I got a computer. Instead he treated me like I was wasting his time. When one sees a doctor you are a customer that deserves respect! Obviously he wasn't listening when he took pharmacology.

Do not go to this office or this doctor. Every aspect of this practice is poorly run from front to back, from the wait times (8:40 appointment time and we walked out at 11:15) to the bedside manner (the discussion about placing ear tubes was, "Let's get you on the schedule for tubes) to the clear implication that I was a billing opportunity, not a patient. All this has been consistent through four visits to this provider (at two different offices). Find a better doctor!

Dr. Allison cares more about shooting the breeze with his staff outside the door than meeting with patients who may have taken off work to be there. In the three or four times I've seen him, I've scheduled an early-morning appointment, only to actually see him late morning--and it is not other patients who are responsible for the delay. He is nonalarmist to the point of brushing off serious questions and does not return phone calls. Trying another doctor in the practice because of the location.

Dr. Allison is great. I had a very scary episode of SSHL (Sudden Deafness) which I didn't even know existed before it happened. Sometimes people don't even recover their hearing but Dr. Allison knew what to do to save me and restore my hearing completely. Very happy.

Dr. Allison was extremely knowledgable and his bed side manner was amazing. My mother had a tracheostomy and her trachea was collapsing at the base causing her to have loss of oxygen. He even showed me threw the scope. So, I was able to see exactly what the issue was. He referred her to a colleague and they had a special trach designed to be long enough to pass the collapse of her trachea. Excellent in every way! Thank you!
