Biography

Erin Allen, M.D., appreciates the long-term relationships she establishes with her patients. “I learn something from my patients every day, whether it’s a new recipe, a local event or how to be a better physician,” she says. She describes her philosophy of care as being a team approach, noting, “The patient needs to feel comfortable and understand the diagnosis and how we’ll fix it together.”

Dr. Allen is a board-certified dermatologist who earned her medical degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine. She completed her dermatology residency and her fellowship in Mohs Micrographic Surgery at Saint Louis University in Missouri, the fellowship accredited by the American College of Mohs Surgery.

Away from the office, Dr Allen enjoys yoga, hiking, cooking, and exploring the Oregon outdoors with her husband and two children.

About Our Survey

A provider’s star rating is based on a Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. In this survey, taken after an office visit, patients answer a series of standardized questions and have the opportunity to provide custom comments. Providence strips identifying information from comments so they can be shared without jeopardizing confidentiality or patient privacy.

Dr. Allen is very calming and comforting. Her staff is absolutely fantastic. I mentioned to Dr. Allen on my most recent visit how wonderful her staff is. They keep you informed and have a wonderful manner.

Biggest problem is getting through on the phone. Dr. Allen's receptionist is always busy so we played phone tag every time I needed to make or change an appointment. It was extremely aggravating.

Dr. Allen was wonderful, however the same cannot be said for SOME of the staff in her office. Although Dr. Allen provided me with excellent care, I will not return to this office due to particular staff members.

I was anxious about my recent Mohs surgery, due to the location near my eye. The staff made sure that I was provided appropriate pre-med for anxiety, prior to the procedure. This helped greatly. I was also given a warm blanket (twice) which was very comforting.

Unfortunately, I'm a frequent flyer for these problems, but new to Providence. Within minutes the doctor had my confidence and trust that she and the staff knew what they were doing, that I mattered, and I was not part of an assembly line. I knew that they had not become complacent or bored by the repetitive nature of their work.
