Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Allison "He truly enjoys and is proficient in all aspects of ear, nose, and throat surgery, Sinus and Allergy, endocrine diagnosis and surgery - thyroid nodules and parathyroid adenomas. His love for children and pediatric care is a large reason he chose this specialty, and as a parent he knows how stressful it can be to have a sick child. He is a firm believer in taking the time to listen to each patient's concerns and perspectives in deciding on a mutually agreeable and effective plan for that patient.

Patient Comments (5)
Louisville, KY |
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!

Dr. Allison is very caring and compassionate. Have had several biopsies and surgery performed by him. I would recommend him to anyone.
