All of Dr. Allen's assistants came out to waiting room and gave me their name and how was I doing today and explained what would take place during surgery. My appt. was for 7:45 and they took me back right away with no waiting at any time during the procedure. Everyone at Dr. Allen's office were wonderful. Thanks for everything.

I was very pleased with the consultation I received from Dr Allen and as a result I chose to cancel a surgery appointment with another (non-Providence) surgeon and reschedule the procedure with Dr Allen instead.

Demonstrating excellent organization and process, Dr. Allen has a very smooth-running system to handle multiple patients concurrently. I was impressed by both her skill as an individual surgeon and the depth of her organization, where the workload seems to be shared by individuals with differing levels of skill and experience, depending upon their roles. All in all, a very positive and confidence-inspiring visit.
