Dr. Allen is not only a fantastic doctor, he takes his time with each patient to find out what the patient's symptoms are in order to make the correct diagnosis. Besides being extremely knowledgeable and intelligent, he is a very kind and caring doctor to all of his patients.

Does not even try to find out what's wrong with you, just keeps giving you more drugs to cover up the symptoms. Always in a hurry to move on. Dismisses problems or abnormal health situations as unimportant. Has a quick temper and will not accept questions. Canny admit he doesn't know something and will never consider the possibility he might nut know everything our that he might be wrong. Does not like it AT ALL if you bring him information to try and help diagnose you. Gets offended easily and expects patients just to do what they're told without asking why or for explanations. Treats symptoms one at a time without every trying to see the big picture or what might be at the root of all your health problems.

This doctors treats symptoms only, without looking for what's causing them. Appointments are rushed and you get shown the door when your 11 minutes are up. Also, he has a very authoritarian manner. Your input or opinion is not only not welcomed, it's not allowed. Finally, he has a hair trigger temper. He can go in a flash from smiling to yelling at you if you dare to voice any kind of dissent or disagreement with a decision he hadhas made fit you. He will not accept any information you bring in related to your health. He minimizes serious illness because it's too much time and trouble to try and figure it out. He might have a self esteem issue because he is very sure he knows everything there is to know already. However, it's evident he doesn't keep up with the latest knowledge in medicine. He denies the truth of anything he didn't learn himself. If you are urgently sick and need to see him, the staff tells you to go to the emergency room. He also has a certain formula for what he does for any condition - he has a set of rules and he never changes them to fit the patient's specific situation. He never changes his mind about anything, even in the face of evidence that what he believes isn't correct.
