I was very satisfied with the entire experience.

April 01, 2016

Dr Allen was very considerate and attentive to talk. with. he answered all questions and was patient and interested. I felt that he. listened and reacted appropriately.

Dr. Allen has been my cardiologist since I was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. He has always answered my questions, and has listened to my concerns very carefully. His responses have always indicated that he is very concerned with my well-being, both physical and mental. His answers are always given in "layman's terms," and are easily understood. I especially like the respect with which I'm treated. Even when he finds something with which I need to be more attentive, he offers correction in a respectful and positive manner. On the morning of my appointment, I did receive a call from Dr. Allen's office stating that he would be late for my appointment, and they adjusted the time of my visit. I chose to arrive at the time of my visit, so I would be available when the doctor was ready to see me. All worked out well. Through the years, I have found Dr. Allen to be a most competent physician who cares about his patients, explains clearly how I should deal with my health issues, and is always positive, even when telling me to alter a behavior pattern.

wait was much improved from previous times, care was excellent. Dr Allen knew I had been thru the loss of my husband and also some trematic orthopedic surgery concerning a fall I had and he made me feellike i was doing well under the circumstance and gave me some advice on coping with it all. Love this practice.

Brilliant doctor with amazing personality. So happy Dr. Allen is my doctor.

Dr. Allen and his staff are the most compassionate,patient, professional health care providers I have ever dealt with. I am not exaggerating when I say they saved my life. Dr. Allen not only cares for your heart problems he cares about the whole person. What doctor do you know holds your hand and reassures you that you'll be fine on an operating table. I call him MR. SUNSHINE!!!
